Steel Panther have announced that they'll be returning to the UK in March 2012 for a headlining tour.

The band is currently on the road in the UK with Def Leppard and Motley Crue. If I had the cash, I'd fly over to the UK for this in a heartbeat!

The March 2012 dates are as follows:

TUESDAY 27 MARCH O2 ACADEMY BIRMINGHAM

WEDNESDAY 28 MARCH O2 ACADEMY GLASGOW

FRIDAY 30 MARCH MANCHESTER ACADEMY

SATURDAY 31 MARCH O2 ACADEMY BRIXTON


Tickets are priced at £16 regionally and £18.50 in London and go on sale this Friday 9th December at 9am. Steel Panther have also confirmed that their highly anticipated second single, JUST LIKE TIGER WOODS, will be released on 12th December via Universal Records. Classic Rock stated that the track is "relentlessly catchy with filthy lyrics". The track is taken from the band's acclaimed second album, BALLS OUT, which was released in October.


The band is also playing shows with Def Leppard and Motley Crüe!

THURSDAY 8th DECEMBER NOTTINGHAM ARENA

FRIDAY 9th DECEMBER GLASGOW SECC HALL 4

SUNDAY 11th DECEMBER MANCHESTER ARENA

TUESDAY 13th DECEMBER SHEFFIELD ARENA

WEDNESDAY 14th DECEMBER WEMBLEY ARENA


Frontman Michael Starr commented "To rock with Lep and Crüe is a dream come true!! This will be the best tour package all year hands down - Now we got to learn our songs from the new CD". Not be outdone, guitarist Satchel added "Getting the tour with Def Leppard and Motley Crüe is the best thing that's happened to Steel Panther since we got the Viagra endorsement - we're hard already!”

These days, SP can actually play some of crue's and leppard's songs better than the original band can...

would love to see SP live they played about an hour away a month or two ago but didnt find out till night of, also picked up the new cd its good but first one is still better and it only cost $10 that should help a few extra sales, all cds should be that price

Ha! Crüe and Lep have become such parodies of themselves, I wouldn't be surprised if Steel Panther comes across more real on this tour!
