1One of my favorite comedy/metal/glam rock bands hit the stage at The House Of Blues in Los Angeles earlier tonight to celebrate the 21 years that the venue had been open. Why were they celebrating the 21 years of the venue? Well, they were because it was the last time that Steel Panther was ever going to play a show at The House Of Blues because it’s closing it’s doors very soon. The show was titled Steel Panther and Friends because the band was promising one heck of a celebration and they did just that with some amazing special guests to go along with their brand of comedy in between their amazing songs. The band hit the stage after being introduced by Sirius Jose Mangin with their roaring classic Eyes Of A Panther and then right into Tomorrow Night before the joking sessions started. The band is unpredictable and that is what is awesome about them. The crowd found first hand when they invited a young female fan onstage as the band performed Party Like Tomorrow Is The End Of The World. They would invited a young Asian fan onstage to dance onstage while they performed the classic Asian Hooker.

The real highlight of the night for me were all the musical guests that they invited on stage with them (it usually always happens at a Steel Panther show), but tonight it was turned up a notch. The first guest they had on stage with them was the great Nuno Bettencourt of funk metal band Extreme who performed You Really Got Me by Van Halen. The next guest that came on stage later on was NYSNC’s Joey Fatone who performed Girl From Oklahoma and Community Property and was surprisingly really good. The next guests of the night came in the form of Ninja Sex Party, who much like Steel Panther are a musical comedy duo. They came onstage to perform Party All Day and that was followed by Dane Cook who performed Panama with the band. The biggest surprise of the night though as far as guests was the fact that Billy Ray Cyrus and Miley Cyrus were actually there. Billy Ray Cyrus came on first to perform the Billy Idol classic Rebel Yell before his daughter joined him to sing backup for the Def Leppard classic Pour Some Sugar On Me. Ron Jeremy came onstage later on laying a harmonica of some sorts, but it only meant one thing and that was Steel Panther had one song left to play which was the anthem Death To All But Metal. It was a sad moment when the band said goodbye, but Michael Starr always looks on the bright side as he claimed that the show was already a back in the day moment.
