Unfortunately one of the main bands of the cruise –STRYPER– had a few issues to be on board the Monsters of Rock Cruise, since the band would only join the ship in Key West City. Because this small problem the band that had been scheduled for two shows on board, could only do a single performance in the 3rd and last day of the event.
We can say it was worth the wait and the band gave a great show as a gift to fans.
The set list brought the band’s entire career and we could see up close the technique of each one of the original members of Stryper on stage. Something really amazing!
Between the songs Michael Sweet gave away dozens of bibles with the cover customized with band’s logo.
The band included also some songs from his latest album “The Covering” that contains only cover versions of greatest classics rock, and played to the audience “Breaking the Law”, “Shout it out loud” and “Heaven and Hell”.
The encore was the charge of “Abyss” and as they use to do “To Hell with The Devil” closed the concert, followed of a silence moment where Michael Sweet hand in hand with all guys of the band made a prayer in thanks to that so special moment, as usual at the end of each band’s concert.

After seeing this show, everyone who was there simply felt like “Why didn’t they get on board the cruise early, so that we could have seen them twice?”
Maybe in the next year!
There’s no doubt we’d wished seeing them again!
Michael Sweet stood along the audience in the main Theater all day seeing all shows that happened there and was gentle with every fan that asked to take a picture or an autograph
