Stryper Checks In With "Murder By Pride" Tour Road Report

Christian glam rockers Stryper are hitting the road in support of the new album "Murder By Pride." Vocalist Michael Sweet has now checked in with the following road report:

"We had an eventful day on the 7th of August as we departed for Bolivia - trying to get out of multiple airports to hook up in Miami only to see Oz and Robert asked to exit the plane and then to sit at the gate, on the plane, for two hours. Apparently, some people tried to sneak on the plane and immigration pulled them off and went through the luggage. My first reaction was 'oh man, they arrested Robert and Oz!'

"I at least got a good laugh out of that thought. Although Tim and I were a little stir crazy, we took off on made our way to Bolivia. We landed close to midnight and made it through customs relatively quickly. We had a good amount of fans there to greet us (100+) and they had been waiting until 6 or 7ish... Robert and Oz made it in around 7 am and were a bit tired. I tell you, if anything there is a band that could plays the roles in a new Spinal Tap sequel, we are the guys! Everything that could happen usually happens to us and it's to a point where you just have to laugh. I laughed so hard yesterday my face was sore when I finally went to bed (4 am). We're still paying our dues and maybe, just maybe someday it's pay off and we'll be big 'rock stars' so we can look back on all the looniness and share our unique stories with our grandkids.... They most likely will never believe us!

"Anyway, they expect a very large crowd. We are performing in an outdoor amphitheater that holds 9-10 thousand. Should be an incredible night and a long overdue opportunity to play for our Bolivian fans. I count my blessings and I look forward to what the future will bring. Great things ahead."
