Stone Sour Announce U.S. Tour with Steel Panther
Stone Sour have just announced a month’s worth of U.S. tour dates with a most unlikely opener: Steel Panther!
Not that the pairing itself is all that strange — both bands have had their share of success in the hard rock world — but I can’t remember ever seeing Steel Panther as a support act on a tour. If it’s happened at all any time in the recent past, it’s quite rare.
In any case I can’t imagine Stone Sour fans not being into Steel Panther in the unlikely event they aren’t already familiar with them. And when do Steel Panther NOT bring their A-game? They’re phenomenal live, and they’ll get the party started right.
The tour hits mostly smaller markets and sticks to the South, West and Midwest U.S. Cherry Bombs, a band with whom I’m unfamiliar, will open. Man With a Mission and Beartooth will appear on select shows as well.
