Stryper to Perform with Saviour 1/4 at Stage 48 in NYC

On Saturday January 4, come see STRYPER with special guests SAVIOUR and HEADSTONE 118 at Stage 48 - 605 West 48th Street, NYC. Doors at 6:00pm, Show at 6:30pm. Tickets are $30 - General Admission, 16 or Over to Enter Full Bar and Restaurant on Premises.

Without a doubt, Stryper is one of the top Christian rock bands of all-time, and certainly the most celebrated Christian metal band of all time. Comprised of Michael Sweet (vocals/guitar), Oz Fox (guitar), Tim Gaines (bass), and Robert Sweet (drums), Stryper has been rocking since 1983, and is responsible for such '80s metal classic albums as 'Soldiers Under Command,' 'To Hell with the Devil,' In God We Trust,' and such MTV hit singles/videos as "Calling on You," "Free," and "Honestly."

After a sabbatical for much of the 1990's, Stryper returned strong in the early 21st century. But it was not until their 2011 covers set, 'The Covering,' that the aforementioned definitive Stryper was reinstated, as the band welcomed Gaines back into the fold."Tim is an original member, so there's a certain magic and chemistry that you have with the original line-up, that you can't replace with someone else," explains Michael Sweet. "Tim is a very talented bass player, singer, and keyboard player. He brings a certain chemistry and energy to the band, and it takes the four of us to recreate that." Stryper is currently touring in support of its latest album, 'No More Hell to Pay', released in November 2013. 'Hell to Pay' cracked the US Billboard Top 40 upon its release.
