Steel Panther + Sevendust Heavy Metal Rules Tour 2021

Published

on

The wildest, wettest, dirtiest, hardest, heaviest most rocking heavy metal tour to hit Australia and New Zealand shores ever in the history of anything ever is coming….a little later than originally planned.  For obvious reasons, the ‘HEAVY METAL RULES TOUR’ re-scheduled dates are as follows:

Sunday 14th February – Powerstation, Auckland
Tuesday 16th February – Margaret Court Arena,Melbourne
Thursday 18th February – NEX, Newcastle
Friday 19th February – Hordern Pavilion, Sydney
Saturday 20th February – Eaton’s Hill, Brisbane

For the uninitiated, Steel Panther was formed in 2000 and is comprised of Michael Starr (lead singer), Satchel (guitarist), Lexxi Foxx (bass) and Stix Zadinia (drums). Hailing from Los Angeles, the epicenter for rock n’ roll in all its debauchery and glamour, Steel Panther has established themselves as the world’s premier party band, melding hard rock virtuosity with parody and criminally good looks. Steel Panther is a global phenomenon with four full-length albums, touring across the world, platinum-level YouTube status and a #13 debut for the new album Heavy Metal Rules on the ARIA charts.
Rolling Stone avowed, “There’s a reason Steel Panther have transcended their origins as a cover band playing the Sunset Strip,” while Metal Sucks declared, “Steel Panther’s concept is genius…their songwriting is…preposterously snappy – and relatable.”

Along for the ride are Sevendust, who were last here in 2019 on their tour celebrating the 2018 album ‘All I See is War’. While demonstrating their musical mastery accumulated over more than 25 years as a band and simultaneously destroying all expectations for their live show, Sevendust show no signs of slowing down. To this day, the connection between fans and the GRAMMY® Award-nominated gold-certified hard rock outfit only grows stronger.

Tickets already purchased for the Heavy Metal Rules Tour are still valid for the Re-Scheduled Dates in 2021 and Tickets are now on sale again at mjrpresents.com.

KISS OFF – The Ultimate Kiss Party Set To Rock February 2021!

Published

on

KISS fans aka “The Kiss Army” are some of the fiercest and most loyal rock ’n’ roll fans on the planet. Whether they prefer the make-up years, and the subsequent return to make-up, or the non make-up years of the ‘80s and early ‘90s, being a Kiss fan is nothing but a celebration of good time rock ’n’ roll and fun.

Silverback Touring will encapsulate the essence of being a Kiss fan with KISS OFF – The Ultimate Kiss Party, which will pay homage to both the ‘70s and ‘80s eras of KISS in a nationally touring live spectacle.

The ‘70s era (complete with full make-up, costumes and stage show) will be performed by the world famous KISSTERIA – The Australian KISS Show whilst the ‘80s era will be represented by Melbourne glam rockers, SISTERS DOLL, in an exclusively curated ‘80s set.

Each show will be rounded out by DJ JORDAN ADAM (Frankies Sydney) playing KISS deep cuts and ‘80s Rock favourites as well as a KISS marketplace for all die-hard fans to secure much sought after merch.

This is the ultimate experience for any KISS fan and will certainly fill the void whilst fans await the return of KISS to Australia on their final ever tour.

Tickets on sale now, both general admission and VIP packages available (limited numbers).

CRASHDIET and PRETTY BOY FLOYD Announce May 2021 Australian Tour

Published

on

Get set for a wild ride on the Glam, Sleaze and Hair Metal rollercoaster as Silverback Touring brings together Swedish hellraisers CRASHDIET, L.A. Glam legends PRETTY BOY FLOYD and local Glamsters SISTERS DOLL for a night of utter chaos.

“Go big or go home” is a phrase we’ve all muttered, shouted, or heard multiple times in our lives. For Swedish hard rockers CRASHDIET, it has been the motivational catch phrase since they started out back in the beginning of 2000.

As fans who have followed the band know, the band has gone through a bit of turbulence in their career, with deaths, line-up changes, and a history of substance abuse that would make some legendary ’80s hard rockers blush.

However, the boys have also become known for picking up the pieces and returning to the fight every time they get knocked down. Their undeniable mixture of ’80s arena rock with notable elements of punk has made them a significant name in the revival of the sleaze and glam (or hair metal) genre. CRASHDIET released their critically acclaimed debut album Rest in Sleaze in the fall of 2005 through Universal Music, giving them a springboard to success in their home country of Sweden, which then spread like wildfire across the globe. In September of 2019 they released their fifth studio album Rust.

Back in the late 80’s NYC guitarist Kristy Majors hooked up with west coast front man Steve Summers and laid the foundation for
their dream band. They worked, wrote songs and played and played and played. The band chose the name PRETTY BOY FLOYD because it seemed to describe them; 4 tough teens armed with guitar licks and teenage angst who set out to conquer the world.

The group signed to MCA records and released Leather Boyz with Electric Toyz, an album whose very name was a tongue-in-cheek tip of the hat to their glamorous heroes – Sweet, Kiss and The New York Dolls – all the bands who believed that rock music wasn’t just music. The Howard Benson-produced album made a significant impact, being named one of the hottest albums of its genre by Metal Edge and Spin magazines. PRETTY BOY FLOYD also landed on the cover of the then metal bible Kerrang!


Two Top 20 videos ‘I Wanna Be With You’ and ‘Rock and Roll is Gonna Set the Night on Fire’ hit MTV when it was the hot place to be. The band toured the world and was recognized as the kings of the Sunset Strip, breaking attendance records held by Van Halen and Warrant. Their album would go on to sell 750,000 copies worldwide. It’s now 2020 and PRETTY BOY FLOYD are still flying the glam flag higher than ever. PRETTY BOY FLOYD will be performing their infamous debut album in full as they return to Australia for the first time in over a decade.

Rounding out the bill are Melbourne glam rockers, SISTERS DOLL, who have developed a solid reputation for their explosive live show, showmanship and enjoy one of this country’s most fierce and loyal followings.

“What can you say about H.E.A.T? If you don’t like these energetic Swedes you must be dead inside, as this year they’ve shown the UK crowd how to be the most complete band on the planet” – Classic Rock Magazine.
