I thought it would be cool to have a topic in which we can write about our experiences and encounters with the Panther.
I start :D
I bought a VIP ticket for the show in Berlin (02/25/2014) … my first Panther show … and I was quite relaxed right up to the moment when the band entered the room. Now my heartbeat resembled a doublebass and I forgot nearly everything I learned during English lessons xD Everyone of the band was like “Hey *hug* how are you? Feeling good?” and I always replied “Fine, thanks”. The only complete sentence I was able to say was “I’m so excited! This is my first Panther show ever!” to Stix. Wow. I felt like a totally retarded dumbass xD
After that the guys signed my bag which looks like a guitar. Satchel laughed when he saw that guitar bag and said “Must be difficult to play on it!”. I didn’t answer, just smiled. No doubt, I’m a dumbass xD
Then we took a photo and the guys said with their loveliest smile “See you at the show!” I just smiled, said nothing and thought “Wow, what the hell is wrong with you, girl?”
And now it’s your turn! I want to hear all the crazy/funny stories of you meeating the band :D

Sorry for the long story!
I haven’t had the pleasure of meeting them yet (hoping for VIP in August!) But I still want to share my little story since Satchel gave me a lot of attention during their last show in Norway :P We were only two girls on his side at the front row (The “splash zone” as he called it :P ). I saw them for the first time in Oslo, Norway (17. August 2014)
When Satchel started to introduce Lexxi, he stopped “Before I introduce you, I wanna say to you, right there” *points at me*. “Jeg vil slikke fitte i kveld / I want to eat pussy tonight”. I got so embarrassed xD
When Michael was talking, he went on pointing at me and making different hand/mouth gestures.
When they started playing Turn Out The Lights, Satchel and Lexxi was arguing over the microphones. Satchel kept on blocking Lexxi from singing and turning the mic away from him :D Lexxi ran over to our side and tried again, only to have Satchel block him once more and pointing him over to his side of the stage. Lexxi *looking sad* started to slowly walk, but then turned to me and started (sorry if I describe this wrong) humping. Satchel screamed “NO, NO” and pushed Lexxi away xD only to turn to me again and continue humping.
The most amazing moments was when they were taking girls up on stage. The two guys I was with lifted me up and started yelling for Satchels attention. Satchel looked at me and smiled “Yes. She’s good, get her up here…. She’s got a vagina, right? Make sure she does”. Michal looked over as the guard helped me up on stage “That girl is so hot, if she had a cock I’d fuck her”. I could feel my whole face turning red as I got up from my knees and looked straight up on Satchel. He had the nicest smile and gave me a little wink before he grabbed me and gave me a big hug.
They continued talking and suddently I was standing beside Michael, holding hands with him. He had such soft hands!
When playing Gold Digging Whore. I was jumping back and forth with Satchel (playing air guitar xD ). Suddently I felt someone ‘pushing’ me from behind. I turned around and Satchel had a grin all over his face. I turn my back to him again (never turn your back to Satchel! xD ) and suddently felt that he was humping me. I turned again and he laughed and gave me a high-five. BTW… Those spandex pants don’t hide much o.O
The other girls was busy, dancing sexy (I can’t dance) while I was jumping like an idiot and doing all the ‘moves’ as Lexxi and Satchel. Lexxi came over and leaned on my while we were doing moves together. “You go girl” he yelled and winked.
Since I was 14, I’ve always said that nobody could beat Iron Maiden live…. I was wrong <3

Ok, I published most of my experiences with the Panther here on Fanthers.com, but I’ll share my “first contact” with the guys 2 years ago in Frankfurt after my first Panther show. I waited for Lexxi, Michael, Stix and Satchel near the tour bus after the show and I was nervous as fuck! After 2 hours they left the “Batschkapp backstage” and they took some time for signing posters and CDs. I was standing next to Lexxi for a photo and an autograph on my ticket. He glanced at my ticket and asked me if I visited the show – he had not seen me. Nice smalltalk, but I had the perfect answer: “yeah, I was at the show in the front row but you ignored me!” – his face expression was priceless ;-)
He tried to explain, why he ignored me and asked for a photo (as always). A really nice guy and the others were nice too. From this moment I love this band :-)
I published some photos of the meeting:
I totally love your stories girls! :-)

Oh my, I get excited just reading your stories! :D
(before I start writing, I want to apologize for any mistakes ^^)
The first and only time I’ve seen them live was 24.02.14 – it was their first concert in Poland. I knew it’s gonna be epic, but I never thought it’s gonna be THAT epic!
The club was really crowded and I could barely move, but when they started to pick girls onstage, one girl asked me to go with her, so I was like *okay* and we told some guys to lift us up. When I finally escaped from the crowd (I almost fell – I was like upside down at one moment xd) I landed right in front of Satchel. He smiled to me (oh, that smile!) and gently embraced my waist. Then they started to play, so I just started singing and dancing with them. I was sooo excited, I couldn’t control myself and everything in my head was happening in slow motion. xD During “It won’t suck itself” I couldn’t resist and hugged Satchel from behind. It seemed like he didn’t mind.. ^^ I also spanked him at one moment, but I don’t remember when and what I was even thinking. XD
Then it was the part, when they wanted girls to show their boobs. I forgot that I’m on stage and was just standing there, smiling like and idiot and all I was thinking was “lol, they’re so funny, I can’t believe I see them live!” xD So at the time I was in my little inner world, I heard Satchel saying “c’mon girls, don’t be ashamed of your tits” (or sth like that) and suddenly I felt that someone’s stroking my hair. I looked in that direction and saw it was Russ. Then I realized that he was talking mainly to me and I was all *oh shit, no*, but fortunately some other girl showed her boobs, so I was safe. xD
During “Death To All But Metal” I was singing and “dancing”(humping? ^^) with Satchel and after this song he turned to me, kissed me and hugged really really tight, pressing his face against mine! <3 And then he grabbed my ass and looked at me with such a sexy gaze.. I was dead.
It was the best night in my life, I’m still as excited as I was that day!
Here you can see me at 3:57 (hugging him) and 10:44 (I got kissed) :)
After the concert I got totally inspired and started drawing them – they shared my drawings on Twitter and Satchel started to follow me! <3 We talked a bit on priv and he’s the sweetest guy I know.
I just love them all. They make me feel alive!

For the first time I met the guys was on the Meet & Greet in Neu-Isenburg.
Initially, my excitement had been limited, but when the band came in I was so nervous that I could hardly get out a word in English.
When it was my turn to make a photo with the Band I hugged everybody and I almost forgot to give my card to Stix for an autograph.
I hugged Lexxi and he asked me “How are you?” and I said “I’m very nervous and excited.” and he said “Oh…why?” I answered “because my english is not so good.” And Lexxi began to telling me something and the only one word that I had understood was “Sweetheart” (yeah I was really nervous and I think my face was so red like a red traffic light XD).
Some girls were put on stage but I didn’t dare to go up there and they started to play the song Gold Digging Whore. Michael went from Lexxi’s site to Satchel’s site.( I was there and danced with a friend. )He pointed on me. So the end was that I went on stage with another girl and Michael gave us a High-Five. :-)
Two days later in Hamburg:
I was standing on Satchel’s site again. The show was really great and I was on stage again. After the song ‘Death to all but Metal’ the guys and me had left the stage. Satchel saw me and said “You are back!” and I was so nervous again that I just could say “yeah” XD and he hugged me. Then I went to Stix and hugged him and left the room to see the rest of the show.
That was the short version. ;-)

It’s good to see I’m not the only one crazy about Steel Panther. I’m from Melbourne Australia and I’ve flown solo to two of their gigs in Melbourne the first one I paid $200 for a ticket off eBay just because I didn’t want to miss their gig I got on stage and it was all worth it. I didn’t think anything could top that first concert in Melbourne but then I flew to Adelaide to see them the third time they came to aus and they were catching the same plane as us!!!! I said to my boyfriend ‘I think I’m going to throw up’ I was so nervous after contemplating what I was going to say I finally built up the courage to say hi to Russ he was so sweet and funny as hell he couldn’t understand a thing I was saying apparently Australian is a whole other language. Had a good chat to Russ and ran into Michael Starr on the plane then went for the meet and greet which was amazing. I had to smash a few beers to calm the nerves a bit. Watched them play and thought I wouldn’t get on stage but Michael ended up pulling me up which was awesome. I can’t wait until they come to aus again definitely my favourite live show to date just bringing back 80’s metal is like a dream come true for me. <3

I only met them once New Years Eve in Maryland! I was nervous so drank a lot of alcohol at the bar before the meet & greet. They seemed nice they said Hi & gave hugs! I told them I had a blast at their NYC show. Then they took the picture & I smacked Michael’s ass they took another picture & that was it! Had a blast at the show partied! Then passed out in my hotel a fun night! I can’t wait to see them again flying to LA & Vegas in June! That is it!
