Stryper Adds New World Tour Dates

As previously announced, long running Christian act Styper is about to embark in a string of select dates worldwide starting May 10th at Tailgaters in Bolingbrook, IL just outside of Chicago. The band has now added several additional dates to the run, which includes shows all the way up to November. The dates are listed below, and the following press release was also issued:

"Looking back over the past 25 years, Stryper is considered to be a groundbreaking act on all accounts. They are one of the first Christian rock bands to achieve unprecedented success in the mainstream. Their 1986 album To Hell With The Devil is listed among CCM’s '100 Greatest Albums in Christian Music' and the band’s popular power ballad 'Honestly' became a Billboard Top 20 hit and reached number 1 on MTV.

"Their pop-rock hit 'Calling On You,' also entered MTV’s top 10, simultaneously with 'Honestly' being one of the first bands to have two top 10 videos on MTV. Even as recent as 2010 and 2011 Stryper found their way once again on the Billboard Charts with their albums Reborn, Murder by Pride and The Covering."
