Watch Miley Cyrus and Steel Panther Cover Def Leppard’s ‘Pour Some Sugar on Me’
Steel Panther closed out the West Hollywood House of Blues on Aug. 4, and they received a little extra help from Miley Cyrus and her father Billy Ray during a cover of Def Leppard's classic "Pour Some Sugar on Me."
As you can see in the fan-shot footage from the performance above, everyone involved did pretty much what you'd expect, with the elder Cyrus contributing vocals and air guitar while Miley prowled the stage during verses and added her own vocals to the chorus. The Los Angeles Times reports that the Cyruses capped a star-studded set that included appearances from Extreme guitarist Nuno Bettencourt and comedian Dane Cook, who joined Steel Panther for a rendition of Van Halen's "Panama."
The West Hollywood House of Blues has stood on the city's Sunset Strip since the mid-'90s and played host to countless artists along the way, but is scheduled to be torn down in order to make room for a new hotel. The Times reports that the House of Blues organization has promised that "the best is yet to come" for L.A. patrons, but a new location has yet to be announced.
As previously reported, Def Leppard's new album is right around the corner, and according to singer Joe Elliott, fans can expect a diverse set that highlights the band's many influences while acknowledging their veteran status.
"There’s some real classic Leppard-sounding stuff on the new album, but there’s also some stuff that a band that’s of our standing — basically, in our 50s — should be doing, which is a little bit more … I don’t wanna say grown up, because that makes it sound boring, but a little bit more … organic, I think is probably the best way to put it,” he explained. “We’ve allowed our roots, or the music that we were steeped in of other people, to soak into our music a little bit more."
