Anyone else post on here done a live review of Steel Panther - O2 Academy Brixton - London - Sat 31 Mar 2012

Here is mine: http://reviews.ticketmaster.co.uk/7171- ... =SLfbk-006
O2 Academy Brixton - London - Sat 31 Mar 2012

Getting off the train at Brixton you know that this isn't going to be your average show, this is Steel Panther in the flesh! Loud and crude is the order of the evening. The short walk from the train to the O2 Academy is packed with people supporting fake boobs, fake 80's looking 'hair metal' wigs and a mass of spandex showing off things you wish you had never seen.

Support band The Treatment are in fine form. This is the end of the tour and the Brixton O2 Academy is the final date. The average age of each member of The Treatment suggests that most of them where born after the inspiration for their music was dead in the ground, still, a brilliant opening, crowd participation and very well played songs make The Treatment a name to keep British fans happy for the near future.
The wait for Steel Panther and the interlude music gives you a clue. People are singing along to AC/DC, Dio and Def Leppard while they wait for tonight's main attraction at the Brixton O2 Academy. Tonight Steel Panther deliver.

Covering songs from their two albums, Steel Panther let people know what they want. Dancing girls, flashers and adoring fans. They ask for it, they got it. In return we're entertained by four grown men acting like it's still 1984. Nothing is left out. Attention to detail has been spent on Steel Panthers live show. Lots of witty banter and a good selection of songs that include; Just Like Tiger Woods, Death to All But Metal and Supersonic Sex Machine that are dated in all the glory from twenty years ago.

The return of Steel Panther to the UK shores in the next few months will be a welcome return to ensuring that good music, nudity and self indulgence is kept alive for years to come.
