Just grabbed tickets to see Steel Panther in Belfast On January 19th 2018,really looking forward to it,didnt think that they would ever come here but happy days,they are.

Support from Wayward Sons and another local as yet unnamed band...I'm hoping For Maverick...fingers crossed,you never know although they play the Limelight quite often in their own right :)

I'll be at Y&T this day next week in the same venue.

I was gonna give the London date a miss as I have seen them so many times now, I am starting to hear the same jokes over and over.

The only thing that is making me reconsider is the fact Wayward Sons are supporting.

Just compare to Twisted Sister.
Saw them in 1985, and then again in 2003.

EXACT. SAME. SHOW.

Embarrassingly so.

Was at this last night,cracking gig,Wayward Sons sounded very good even though I wouldn't be a fan of their album.

Steel Panther were excellent,top class show,really fun and sounded great also,didnt think they would have believed that 400 Belfast fans could be so loud...they now do :) I'd just love to thank em for an Amazing night out :drink:

What a disappointment last Friday, the band was good as always but it didn't translate at all because of the bad mix. Not sure if they passed a new law in Switzerland recently as Airbourne in November was also QUIET which sucked! If you don't even feel the drums and it sounds as if you're watching a DVD on a big screen then what's the point of going to a rock show? That's how bad the sound was.

Again, not the band's fault but I still have some criticism: they opened with ''Eyes of a Panther'' which I really don't care for, never have. Also I was wondering before what song they would open the show with, for example other bands such as Santa Cruz each time they release a new record they have a new opener which fits perfectly. With the debut it was ''Relentless Renegades'', then on the tour for the self titled album they opened with ''Bonafide Heroes'' and currently the opener is ''Young Blood Rising''.

But I feel Steel Panther never topped ''Supersonic Sex Machine'' which I wished they had played as the opener, the two most recent albums don't feature any opener material in my opinion. Maybe ''Pussywhipped'' but that's it, so yeah... disappointed they went with ''Eyes of a Panther''

Not the best song they ever recorded, but maybe 'Anything goes' would be a decent opener? That said, 'Eyes of a panther' is a far better individual song than that. ;)

No doubt they have a great live show, that in and will be enduring.

I've been fairly critical of them, and still am to a degree.
But recently I've given All You Can Eat a second try with better results.

I think enough time has gone by for me to be ready for some of the smutty songs again - at least one albums worth.

they should open with Death to all......still one of their best songs 

I was going to say that and it's my first thought, but in the world of live music isn't that a given for an encore tune?

my encore would be Tiger Woods followed by Gold Digging Whore and Asian Hooker

    • Releases July 26. $47.08 at ImportCDs: https://www.importcds.com/dynamite-china-years-complete-recordings-1988-1993/5013929929920 8CD complete collection of recordings released by China Records. Featuring what most consider to be the classic line-up of The Dogs D'Amour; Jo 'Dog' Almeida on guitar, Steve James on bass, the onomatopoeic Bam on drums, and of course fronted by songwriter and singer, the inimitable Tyla. Propelled by the albums' three singles 'The Kid from Kensington', 'I Don't Want You to Go' and 'How Come It Never Rains' edging their way up the charts, when The Dogs D'Amour's genre-defining 1988 "debut" 'In The Dynamite Jet Saloon' (CD2) was released in 1988, it must have looked like the band was an overnight sensation. But this couldn't have been further from the truth. The Dogs D'Amour originally formed in 1983, and had already recorded two previous "debut" albums. First was 1984's now highly collectable 'The State We're In', for Finnish label Kumibeat. Further recordings were made in 1985 and 1986 for Watanabe Records in Japan, and it's the latter where this collection kicks off. 'The (Un)Authorised Bootleg Album' (CD1) was the record originally intended for Japan. The second set in this collection is the aforementioned In 'The Dynamite Jet Saloon' (CD2), bursting with classics. A highly prolific band in their earliest days, 'Errol Flynn' (re-titled 'King Of The Thieves' in the States) (CD3) was released in 1989 as was the extended mini-album, 'A Graveyard Of Empty Bottles Vol. 1' (CD4), a collection of acoustic songs that reached the UK Top 20. 1990 saw the release of '... Straight?!!' (CD5) featuring the singles 'Victims of Success', 'Empty World' and 'Back On The Juice'. Unfortunately, and in true rock 'n' roll tradition, the band split up on stage in Los Angeles in 1991. Thankfully the band regrouped for the self-explanatory '... More Unchartered Heights Of Disgrace' (CD6) in 1993. This eight CD collection is completed with no less than two discs of rarities, live tracks and B-sides with 'Singles, B-Sides & Rarities' (CD7) and 'Even More Singles, B-Sides & Rarities' (CD8), making this the most complete and comprehensive collection of the band's recordings for China.   - Disc 1 - 1 Firework Girl 2 Chains 3 Gold 4 Pourin' Out My Heart 5 Wait Until I'm Dead 6 How Do You Fall in Love Again? 7 Kiss This Joint 8 Heroine 9 Tales of Destruction 10 Dynamite Jet Saloon 11 Swingin' the Bottle - Disc 2 - 1 Debauchery 2 I Don't Want You to Go 3 How Come It Never Rains 4 Last Bandit 5 Medicine Man 6 Gonna Get It Right 7 Everything I Want 8 Heartbreak 9 Billy Two Rivers 10 Wait Until I'm Dead 11 Sometimes 12 The Kid from Kensington 13 The State I'm in - Disc 3 - 1 Drunk Like Me 2 Goddess from the Gutter 3 Hurricane 4 Satellite Kid 5 Errol Flynn 6 Planetary Pied Piper 7 Princess Valium 8 Dogs Hair 9 Trail of Tears 10 Ballad of Jack 11 The Prettiest Girl in the World 12 The Girl Behind the Glass 13 Things Seem to Go Wrong 14 Oooh!
