LA glam rockers Steel Panther have announced their new live streaming event, ‘Fans Come First,’ which airs on May 22, 2021 from The Viper Room. The virtual gig will mark the band’s first online show since the cancelation of ‘Gobblefest’ last December. The show will stream globally at 2PM PDT (Los Angeles), 5PM EDT (NYC) and 10PM BST (London).
“Fans Come First will differ from any other livestream the band has done since the setlist will be curated directly from the Fanthers,” says today’s announcement. “Fans can visit www.steelpantherrocks.com to submit suggestions for the set list and upload videos (encouraged to be as short as possible) of themselves talking about how they discovered Steel Panther or their favorite song, etc.”
They add, “The videos will be shared throughout the Fans Come First event. Tickets for the show are $15 each with a portion of the proceeds for each ticket sold going to benefit Dogs Without Borders. Fans who purchased tickets under 2 for $20 promotion last year will automatically have access to the show. The stream will be available until June 6th and ticket buyers will have access to the Rockbuster Video Archive to watch past streams as well from the time they purchase the ticket until that date. For more information and to purchase tickets, head to https://lnk.to/steelpantherlive.”
Steel Panther comments, “It has been over six months since we have been able to do a livestream from Los Angeles. With summer just around the corner, we figured now is the perfect time to come together with the fans and help some dogs while at it. The fact the fans will be picking the set list for this one is something that we couldn’t be more excited for. It is going to an adventure for us as much as it will be for them.”

ICYMI, Steel Panther recently paid tribute to the late, great Eddie Van Halen with covers of “Beautiful Girls” and “D.O.A.” from the classic album ‘Van Halen II.’ “The songs have been some of Steel Panther’s favorites to play live and that became the inspiration to actually record them after all these years,” they previously said. Stream the tunes via your favorite digital platforms here, and see the quarantine-style music videos below.
