Guitarists Joe Perry and Brad Whitford shared the sentiment that Aerosmith’s performance at the 2014 Download Festival was one that really stood out as one of the band’s best at least for that festival. As Perry noted, “We have played Donington many times but this performance was one of our best.” He noted that for him personally the fans that were there in attendance played a big role in making it so special. “Thanks to our fans who were there who helped us make it a night to remember. ” He added onto that sentiment the belief that it will be just as special for audiences that weren’t lucky enough to be there, saying, “We are proud to have it be part of this theatrical series and it will give our fans who weren’t there around the world a chance to relive an ass kicking night of rock and roll.” Whitford shared Perry’s sentiment saying, “We’re really proud and grateful to have been chosen to headline the Download festival at Donington for 2014.” He added “It was an awesome experience and I think this film captures it. Special thanks to the insane fans who stuck with us through mud and rain.”

Drummer Joey Kramer and bassist Tom Hamilton echoed the thoughts of Perry and Whitford with Kramer stating, “I’m grateful to have been able to play this show at Donington. I thought the band played great, the audience was great. That night was a very special time.” Hamilton added in “We’re really proud and grateful to have been chosen to headline the Download festival at Donington for 2014. It was an awesome experience and I think this film captures it. Special thanks to the insane fans who stuck with us through mud and rain.”

Steel Panther’s New Live BD A “Solid” Release For Fans

Benjamin Franklin, one of America’s founding fathers, once said that death and taxes were life’s two constants.  If he were alive today, Franklin would change his tune and say that there are in fact three more constants in the twenty-first century.  Those constants are sex, drugs, and rock & roll.  Many bands have tried to live those constants.  Many have succeeded.  But few have truly lived those constants like the glam rockers of Steel Panther.  This California based band actually started in 2009.  Since that time, its members—Lexxi Foxx, Michael Starr, Satchel, and Stix Zadinia—have become the poster boys for everything that was at one point all that rockers lived for.  The band has already released two albums under its current moniker.  And now thanks to Universal Republic Records, audiences get a new chance to experience all the testosterone fueled, alcohol infused bombacity that is Steel Panther live in its new live release, British Invasion.

British Invasion was recorded live at the famed Brixton Academy during its most recent live tour in support of its most recent album, Balls Out.  Brixton Academy has hosted some of rocks biggest names including both Machine Head and Sepultura.  Now Steel Panther can add its name to the list of huge names that have performed there.  Fans of the aforementioned bands got quite the show with each one.  And Steel Panther’s fans get a show that they’ll enjoy in this new release, too.  Not only do fans get a full set from its performance at Brixton, but there’s also the bonus of five extra songs recorded live at the band’s performance at the Download 2012 Festival.  The audio and video mix on both of the main and bonus performance are quite clear.  And whether one has seen SP live before or not, audiences get a show that has all the over the top antics and music that audiences have come to expect from this band.  To sweeten the deal, the band and its label, Universal Republic Records, have included a booklet complete with lyrics to every song performed in the main set.

The booklet included with the Blu-ray is just part of what viewers will appreciate from this performance.  Audiences get out of this performance, a band that actually interacts with the audience in attendance.  And it’s not just your standard back and forth banter, either.  The entire band gets in on the act.  It’s little things like that that make a performance memorable.  Though of course, the band’s interaction with its audience is just half of what will make the band’s fans enjoy this recording.  There’s also enough T & A to make any college frat boy happy for quite some time.  The band even brings in some “adult entertainers” to help with its show in more than one song.  Add in the impressive audio and visual editing and mixing and fans get in this recorded performance a show that fans of Steel Panther will be watching time and again.  The band’s new DVD and Blu-ray are both available online and in stores now.  Regardless of whether or not fans manage to pick it up, they’ll still have the chance to see the band live as it’s currently touring in support of the new live release now.  Fans can get all the latest tour dates and news from the band now online at,,!/Steel_Panther, and
