Win A Ticket For Stryper @ Stage 48 On 6/12/2016

Poster - Stryper at Stage 48 - 2016

The Details: It’s always great when those Soldiers Under God’s Command drop by our Metal Metropolis for a show and once again they will be bringing their great live sound to the Stage 48 venue on the West Side of town. Though I’ve said this before I think that the attack of the yellow and black keeps many fans on a positive Metal path and while we will surely be getting some new greatness from the most recent album “Fallen”, we are closing in on the 30th Anniversary of their classic “To Hell With The Devil” album from 1986 as well. I can assure you that this is going to be a fun night of music from beginning to end and will even feature some talented local players as the opening bands. Now, add to this coolness the absolute levels of awesome in the fact that the Marketing Team behind Stage 48 who have asked PiercingMetal to hold this contest and put some people in the room for free. This excites me almost as much as the fact that the band still possesses all original members still in 2016. Read more on how to participate in this one.

When and Where: Sunday, June 12th @ Stage 48 (605 West 48nd Street, NYC)

To Participate: Having done several contests for this fine band already I am running out of creative different ideas so will use the same as our last go round. I don’t think you’ll mind at all so here we go. If you are a fan of the band already let me know just how much you want to see this show and tell me what about Stryper appeals to you the most. If you are one of the new and curious, convince me why you should make the cut. You can put as many reasons as you like but I must request that there are at least three for me to read. I will be selecting the best comments and replying directly to their submission. Here are some guidelines.

– Enter only enter once. The comments are moderated and will not appear immediately after submission.
– Number them for ease of knowing if you followed the instructions or not if I’ve asked for a list.
– Please enter your full real name in the comment form along with an email address that you can be reached at if you win. This is necessary for listing purposes. Please do NOT put this information in the comment itself out of privacy concerns.
– Only enter if you can and will attend the show should you win and it’s logistically possible for you to do so. Essentially if you live a couple of hundred miles away we don’t think you’re coming here for a show in NYC.
– Subscribe to the comments and check back to see the responses so you know if you won or not.
– Make sure you are entering a NEW comment and not replying to another contestant’s entry as that makes notifying you difficult should you be marked as a winner.

This contest will close by end of 3pm on Friday 6/10 or when sufficient entries have been received. Go get ‘em.

Restrictions: PiercingMetal’s contests are open to our loyal readers, Facebook Page likers and Twitter Followers but that being said we are still looking for the new names first. Don’t let that stop you from entering of course but we do keep track based on the overall demand for this stuff at this point. We want EVERYONE to have a chance to enjoy a show on the provider and PiercingMetal but if you just won you will likely not have a chance for this one. Please note that Anonymous or Guest comments will not be approved.

  1. 1)Picking up a copy of Metal Edge magazine and reading about them is when I first heard of Stryper. However, it was not until the program “Night Flight” on USA Network aired the video “Soldiers Under Command” that got me into them and picking up the album. I was hooked!

    2)With grunge taking over and the metal scene coming back, I snagged copies of “The Yellow and Black Attack”, “Soldiers Under Command” back in my collection again & “To Hell With The Devil” . Great albums with a catalogue of great songs.

    3)First Stryper concert was 2009 at Irving Plaza and after that I have seen them three more times. Michael and Robert Sweet are talented brothers along with Oz Fox & Tim Gaines. Seeing them live is always a treat as their shows never disappoint. So worth it!

    1. Hey Anne Marie, I liked your answer so am going to mark you down for a ticket for the show so please refer to the “If You Win This Contest” for the full details on how to claim it that night.

  2. I was always a fan of Styrper, from.the day I picked up “To Hell with the Devil” on vinyl in 1987 to their recent underrated stuff such as “Murder by Pride” “No more hell to pay” and “Fallen” . Never mind the 1980s glam and bumblebee suits, this a serious band with good musicianship, who are great live. I’ve met the guys in the band- they are great. They make Christian music cool and thought provoking and not hokey or corney.

  3. I never was a fan of metal until I discovered the power of Stryper! The moment my uncle showed me this band and the great essences of true metal, this band stuck me the most along with Wasp, Steel Panther, Iron Maiden, and so forth. But be Christian and loving the rock out tunes and touching ballads always keeps me pumped for a Stryper concert or new album release. Remember…you’re “Free! Free to do what you want to!” And I’m free to respect and appreciate this incredible, and unbelievable band.
