Stryper’s To Hell With The Devil 30th Anniversary Tour is set to make a stop in Wilmington, North Carolina on Monday, October 3 at The Throne Theater (formerly known as Ziggy’s By The Sea).
The iconic rock band is celebrating the 30th anniversary of their multi-platinum album To Hell with the Devil this fall with a world tour, featuring all four original members and complete with the original yellow and black costumes. Released by Enigma Records on October 24, 1986, the GRAMMY-nominated To Hell with the Devil is the band’s third studio album and the first Christian metal album to achieve platinum status. The band will be playing the album in its entirety along with fan favorites from their other albums.
“To Hell with the Devil literally changed our lives,” says frontman Michael Sweet. “During that tour we went from playing theaters and mid-sized clubs to arenas, all in a very short amount of time. We never could have predicted the wild popularity of those songs and videos – especially in the mainstream market.”
Unlike many of their counterparts, Stryper is comprised of all four original members with Michael Sweet on vocals and guitar, Robert Sweet on drums, Tim Gaines on bass and Oz Fox on guitar. Rocking since 1984, Stryper is responsible for such classic ’80s metal albums as Soldiers Under Command, To Hell with the Devil and In God We Trust. After a sabbatical for much of the 1990’s, Stryper returned strong in the early 21st century. To date, the Dove Award-winning and GRAMMY-nominated band has sold over 10 million records worldwide.
Stryper’s To Hell with the Devil Tour is sponsored by Manwell DeCoudres Restaurant Group, The Salty Snapper, Woodstack BBQ Tavern, Pro Shot Basketball and Ucreative.
