Steel Panther are helping concert photographers that have been hit by the pandemic by raising funds via a new virtual photo exhibit

Since last March, concerts and music festivals worldwide have been on hold due to the ongoing pandemic, and one of the many occupations that have taken a hit is concert photography. In that spirit, Steel Panther wants to help hurting concerts photographers, and to do so, they’ve kicked off a 14-week virtual photo exhibit called, “Sex, JPEGS and Rock & Roll.”

The glam rockers – who have also donated to Live Nation’s Crew Nation COVID-19 relief fund, animal rescues and exotic dancers through their recent virtual shows – has teamed up with seven photographers who have photographed Steel Panther live at their shows throughout the years. Band members worked closely with each photographer to pic a selection of various photos, all of which will be available for purchase online for two weeks before the next photographer’s work is featured.

Photos will be available in three formats: premium matte poster, framed canvas or framed print. View the current featured photographer and online photo gallery to purchase a print via Steel Panther’s official website.

“You see them all the time. They block your view for the first three songs and you may even kick them in the back of the head while crowd surfing, but these unsung heroes never complain or kick you back,” Steel Panther said in a collective statement.

“These photographers have been friends of Steel Panther for a while and we decided for all they have done for us, this was the least we can do,” they added. “So grab your fancy berets and prepare to learn a thing or two from Steel Panther photography exhibit ‘Sex, JPEGS and Rock & Roll.’ Admission is free so don’t be cheap and buy something to support these artists.”

In other news, Steel Panther’s most recent studio album is 2019’s “Heavy Metal Rules.” Last fall, Steel Panther frontman Michael Starr told Audio Ink Radio in an interview that the band was currently writing “some really killer tunes” and that the guys were “not writing about the quarantine,” instead focusing on the escapism of “partying and having a good time.”
