Steel Panther closed down House of Blues on the Sunset Strip with a hell of a rocking party featuring several of their well-known friends.

After playing a Monday night residency for 15 years, Steel Panther are the one band most closely associated with the House of Blues on Sunset Strip. So when it was time for last call, there was no more fitting of a send off than one final Monday night filled with that special Steel Panther rock.

The evening, billed as Steel Panther and friends, featured surprise guest performances from Nuno Bettencourt on The Kinks “You Really Got Me,” Joey Fatone from ’N Sync, Ninja Sex Party, and Dane Cook, who ended his vocals to Van Halen’s “Panama.”

There was also Billy Ray Cyrus, who sang a killer version of Billy Idol’s “White Wedding,” and then brought his daughter Miley Cyrus out for Def Leppard’s “Pour Some Sugar on Me.”

The typical R-rated Steel Panther antics were all in play, girls flashed their tits, and blow-up dolls rained down from the ceiling, with a little help from an audience member who climbed on someone’s shoulders to pull the rope that freed the dolls. Ron Jeremy even made an appearance playing harmonica. 

Steel Panther played all of their well-loved songs, such as “17 Girls in a Row,” “Asian Hooker,” “Community Property,” and “Eyes of a Panther.” The crowd, many of whom had flown in from around the world for this special send-off, was huge and appreciative. And the club itself was packed to the rafters. A fitting end indeed.
