By the fact that it says “first annual,” it probably means it’ll be happening every year from here on out, but Stryper is holding their inaugural “Stryper Fan Weekend” Oct. 11-13. There are three types of tickets, Single Hotel, Double Hotel and No Hotel, with the Single costing $777/person and going down from there.

“What does a fan weekend with Stryper consist of?” you may be asking yourself. Glad you were!

  • A Stryper acoustic concert
  • A first listen to the upcoming album No More Hell to Pay
  • You’ll be “among the first to see the new Stryper music video”
  • Q&A session with the band
  • Sunday morning worship with Michael Sweet
  • And they’ll be taping the whole thing for an upcoming 2014 live DVD release
  • Lunches, dinners and a breakfast buffet

If that’s your thing, it’s being held at the Marriott Cool Springs Hotel in Nashville, TN. Make your plans now!
