After nearly four decades in the music industry, Stryper has earned nearly every accolade known to man. A short list would include two platinum-selling albums, six gold albums, two platinum videos, a Grammy nomination, four #1 MTV videos and in 2010, HM Magazine named their "To Hell With the Devil" the #3 Christian rock album of all time. Leading the charge is frontman Michael Sweet, who brings his voice and guitar to Hickory on June 14th. Besides recording and touring with Stryper, the Dove Award winner has enjoyed a critically and commercially successful solo career for over twenty years. His latest offering "One Sided War" debuted at #1 on the Hard Rock Albums chart. He has collaborated with everyone from George Lynch in their supergroup Sweet Lynch, to WWE star Chris Jericho of Fozzy. In addition, Michael managed to find time to sing for international heavyweights Boston after the passing of Brad Delp for four years. In an intimate solo acoustic show Michael will be performing Stryper's hits as well as gems from his own impressive solo catalogue. The show is appropriate for all ages, and there's something for fans of all types of music. Fans wanting the ultimate concert experience may purchase VIP "Eat & Greet with Michael Sweet" packages as well.
