Steel Panther Lowers The Bar In Richmond

Written By: Brandon Delano

 

Steel Panther brought their ‘2017 Girls in a Row’ tour to Richmond’s The National on Monday night bringing with them Detroit’s Citizen Zero. One thing that can be said about a Steel Panther show is, regardless of which day of the week it is you’re going to party like it’s Saturday night. There was plenty of spandex, big hair, and boobs, yeah boobs, it is a Steel Panther show after all, in Richmond Monday night. The band’s latest release Lower the Bar, which features the songs, “Poontang Boomerang,”  “She’s Tight,” and “I Got What You Want” was released back in March and can be purchased HERE.

 

Getting things started for the night were Detroit’s Citizen Zero. The band is currently out on tour supporting their album State of Mind, which produced the singles, “Go (Let Me Save You),” and “Lure and Persuade”. The new album can be purchased HERE. The highlight of the set was when the band performed the Ted Nugent cover, “Stranglehold”, which had the fans up on their feet singing along.

Setlist:

State of Mind
Palm Tree
Lure and Persuade
Bangin’ in the Nails
Go (Let Me Save You)
Stranglehold (Ted Nugent cover)
When the Rain Comes
Save the Queen

Citizen Zero is:

Josh LeMay – Vocals/Guitar
Sammy Boller – Lead Guitar
John Dudley – Drums
Sam Collins – Bass

 

Steel Panther kicked off their hour and a half set with “Eyes of a Panther” followed by “Goin’ in the Backdoor,” which is off their latest release Lower The Bar. Steel Panther’s set is a mixture of comedy and classic ’80s hair metal rock, which the fans can’t seem to get enough of. During the set the band likes to bring women from the crowd up on stage to participate in the nights antics, which they did for “Poontang Boomerang,” “Girl From Oklahoma,” and “17 Girls in a Row”. If you haven’t had the chance to catch Steel Panther live you really are missing out on a great show. My suggestion is to dig out your pair of spandex pants, big hair, and get to one of the remaining shows on the tour. You can see a clip from the nights show below. Be sure to keep up with all that is Steel Panther HERE.

Setlist:

Eyes of a Panther
Goin’ in the Backdoor
