Heavy Metal parodists Steel Panther, off of the heels of their “Concert to Save the World” have announced that they will play another live concert in August. Dubbed the “Rockdown in the Lockdown”, the live streamed concert will also feature comedy skits that will be interspersed between songs. A press release on the band’s website stated:
“Tickets for the virtual concert will cost $15.00 each; with proceeds from each ticket sold going to benefit a local Los Angeles animal rescue and Live Nation’s Crew Nation Fund (benefitting all touring personnel affected by the Covid-19 pandemic). All fans who purchase tickets to the concert will get access to Steel Panther’s Rockbuster Video Store. The Rockbuster Video Store will be a place where fans can access exclusive content to stream for a period of time. Currently, The Concert To Save The World and the classic Live From Lexxi’s Mom’s Garage will be available with ticket purchase and more content will be added. Anyone who has purchased the band’s latest effect pedal The Butthole Burner prior to the concert will get a free ticket to the event.”
The concert will be broadcast live on Sunday, August 16 at 2PM (PST) and 5PM (EST.) In addition, the band will conduct a virtual “meat-and-greet” (there’s some outside the box thinking) on various dates and times prior to the show. The package includes virtual meet-and-greet access, a chat with two members of the band and a screen-shot selfie with the band. Last month’s “Concert to Save the World” had over fifteen thousand fans watching. Let’s see if we can top that!
