Stryper The Canyon Club 10/8/2011

I found this to be a very enjoyable performance by the Yellow and Black Attack.   The drumming, guitar playing and singing were top notch.  Michael Sweet has a glorious voice and the band did a great job.  The crowd was way into it and it was refreshing to see such a positive show.  I’ve never prayed at The Canyon before.   They played a Priest song, a KISS song and a Black Sabbath song.   This was the complete opposite of selling out.  Good call, Stryper!   


I’m going to go buy their newest album, which is made up of cover tunes by some pretty killer bands.  There didn’t appear to be any copies at the merch booth, so I’m ordering it.    I was kind of sad I didn’t catch a bible or a guitar pick and those were my only regrets of the evening other than not getting several pictures of people wearing outrageous shirts.


As a side note, Michael was also great in Boston (I caught that show in July of 2007 with him sharing lead vocal and guitar duties with Tom Scholz and the guy that was discovered on the internet from Home Depot that sounds just like Brad Delp)……. and call me crazy, but I’d really like to see him as the singer of Dream Theater (sorry, James LaBrie)- I really think he’d be perfect for that band and would make them unbeatable.

It was definitely a good evening with fun friends that know how to enjoy themselves.       And I’d totally go see this band again on this tour.    Amen.
