Steel Panther Announces Auckland Date on ‘Heavy Metal Rules’ 2020 Tour


MJR Presents are bringing Steel Panther to New Zealand once again for a Heavy Metal Party the likes of which have never been seen by human eyes.

The ‘Heavy Metal Rules Tour’ hits Auckland, New Zealand on Wednesday May 20, before heading over the ditch for a run of Aussie shows.

Steel Panther are no stranger to New Zealand shores, last playing Auckland in 2016 and receiving rave reviews.

For the uninitiated, Steel Panther was formed in 2000 and is comprised of Michael Starr (lead singer), Satchel (guitarist), Lexxi Foxx (bass) and Stix Zadinia (drums). Hailing from Los Angeles, the epicenter for rock n’ roll in all its debauchery and glamour, Steel Panther has established themselves as the world’s premier party band, melding hard rock virtuosity with parody and criminally good looks.

Steel Panther is a global phenomenon with four full-length albums, touring across the world, platinum-level YouTube status and a #31 debut for the new album Heavy Metal Rules on Australia's ARIA charts.

Rolling Stone avowed, “There’s a reason Steel Panther have transcended their origins as a cover band playing the Sunset Strip,” while Metal Sucks declared, “Steel Panther’s concept is genius...their songwriting is...preposterously snappy – and relatable.”

Tickets for this massively epic tour go on pre-sale at 9:00am Wednesday March 11 at, and then on general sale Wednesday March 11 at 10:00am.

Wednesday May 20 – Powerstation, Auckland
