“First off, thanks to all who gave of their wives and girlfriends to make our tour with Judas Priest an incredible ride…or several rides, depending on the level of hotness. It was such an honor touring with these Metal gods.

“But, 2014 ain’t over yet and we’ve still got some sex left in the tank! We’ve got a few more headline shows to close out the year and we want to party with you! Tickets and VIP packages are still available, but going fast! Check out the full list of dates below and get your asses to the show!! And, if you’re thinking about VIP, be sure to check out the fun others had on our Facebook page! Don’t worry, we kept out all the NSFW photos… Holidays + booze + mistletoe = bad decisions…let’s fucking do this!

“Speaking of the holidays…we’ve got some incredible shit from the vault on sale RIGHT NOW at the official Steel Panther store and, even better, it’s cheaper than a hooker on Sunset. So, you can get some great gifts for the Fanther in your life and still have money left over for blow…

“Hope to see you all at the shows! See all the dates, get tickets and check out the meet & greet packages right here! Happy Holidays, everyone!!”

Comments Shone of the upcoming adventure: “I knew I had to step it up when Phil asked me to join this tour…the result is my most ambitious live undertaking. I have worked myself to a bloody pulp soldering, rewiring, building, to make things stronger, louder and more devastating. I also am bringing a small team along with me as well to help with live video streaming, cameras etc. This will for sure be a raucous affair not to be missed….”

Warbeast Denied Entry To Canada, Seeking Replacement Shows

Warbeast will be touring with Philip H. Anselmo & The Illegals later this summer, but the band has now checked in with the following announcement about seeking replacement dates for the planned Canadian shows:

“Because Warbeast is unable to get into Canada (please don’t ask why)… we are obviously not able to do the 2 Canadian dates with Phil’s new solo band on our upcoming tour with them in August.

“So we are still looking to add a show or 2 or 3 on those off dates. So if any promoters, bands or whoever out there can help us with booking something… please let us know. The dates we have open are August 10th, 11th and 12th.

“The shows would have to be somewhere between Royal Oak Michigan (Detroit) and Worcester Massachusetts. So please don’t start offering any shows that are too far out of that route. Look it up on a map if you have to see if it is something that would work for us. Areas like in Ohio or upstate New York might work. I guess if we can’t book anything on those dates we will have a mini-vacation during the tour… which means we will just have to party our asses off… haha!”
