In a statement, the band said of their return to Australia: “Panther Panther Panther, Oi Oi Oi!!! It’s that time once again, Steel Panther have stolen their mom’s credit cards and bought flights to Australia.

“On this tour Down Under, we are planning on rocking you so hard that you will need to make a doctor’s appointment to fix all the organs that will explode from the deep, penetrating joy of partying with these American heavy metal legends and world-class athletes.”

In a 2022 interview with The Music, singer Michael Starr remarked of the band’s Australian fanbase: “You guys like us; that's great taste, you know.

“Even walking around in Australia, I got noticed a lot, which was strange to me because I can walk around LA and get noticed all day long. I didn't expect that on the other side of the world, for some reason. I think that Australia rocks a little harder than most.”

The pre-sale for Steel Panther’s upcoming tour opens at 10 am local time on Thursday, 13 June, via the band’s website. The general sale begins at noon local time on Tuesday, 18 June, via TEG Live. You can sign up for early access tickets here.
