Stryper Frontman Michael Sweet Invites Fans to Join Him for a 10-Day Tour of Israel

Israel Theme Tours is proud to announce that Stryper frontman and accomplished solo artist Michael Sweet will be taking fans to Israel, January 13-22, 2013. The 10-day, VIP-style tour of the Holy Land will offer fans a once-in-a-lifetime vacation experience.

Travelers will follow in the footsteps of Jesus, explore the ruins of the ancient port city built by King Herod, experience the Western Wall and the ancient city of Jerusalem, float in the Dead Sea, visit Yad Vashem (Holocaust Museum), roam the beaches of Tel Aviv, experience baptism in the Jordan River and much more.

Michael will join the tour group each day for a variety of activities, including exclusive fan access and a private concert performance while cruising the Sea of Galilee.

“I’ve always wanted to go to The Holy Land but I’ve never been,” said Sweet. “I’m excited that my first time will be with some of my closest friends and fans. From Jerusalem to the Jordan River, this is going to be incredible.”

The tour is limited to 50 travelers, and registrations are being accepted now. Fans can reserve their spot by visit www.israelthemetours.com/michaelsweet.

Multi-platinum rock band Stryper recently completed a yearlong world tour, and they are putting the final touches on the follow up to 2010’s The Covering. Sweet is also working on a solo record and an autobiography, both due later this year. For more information, visit www.stryper.com and www.michaelsweet.com.
