Stryper, Santiago, Chile 09/12/2019

Great show, I'm no christian myself so I never connected with their message but holy shit do these guys rock. The entire band played great especially Oz Fox and Michael Sweet whose voice barely shows any signs of age (if my ears didn't deceive me Honestly was the only song they played in a lower key). Their tone was great as well, Michael played through JCM 900 heads if I'm not mistaken and Oz used, from what I could tell, Mesas and their signature yellow & black guitars.

Here's the setlist:

Soldiers Under Command
Loving You
Calling on You
Free
More Than a Man
All for One
Surrender
All She Wrote (FireHouse cover)
Honestly
In God We Trust
Always There for You
Sorry
Yahweh
Sing-Along Song

Encore:
The Abyss
The Valley
To Hell With the Devil

    Nice set list. 
    MS has kept his pipes in very good shape over the years, no question. 

    The real bummer is, Oz Fox has brain tumours, which are benign but will cause trouble if left. 
    One's attached to an auditory nerve, so treatment will render him completely deaf in one ear. 
    Seriously bad news for a professional musician.

    Stryper is such a great live band and Michael's voice seems to have gotten better with age. He sounds amazing in concert. I have seen them twice in the last 5 years. Sweet is also a pretty underrated guitarist. Oz usually gets the accolades in that band but Sweet certainly holds his own with him. It seems Sweet does more of the lead work on recent Stryper albums than Fox....but I could be mistaken. Great set list. My only complaint with them live is the inclusion of those terrible piano ballads like "Honestly". I always hated when Stryper would put those on the albums. It was like they did those for the sole purpose of having a hit on the Christian charts.
