Cleveland OH 3/29/11 Walking into the venue with mixedreaction as I have never been here before and I have also neverbeen to a Stryper show I was not sure what to expect. It was anight of surprises for me. The venue was very clean includingthe restrooms which even had restroom attendants. The House of Blues was filled that night with approximately600 in attendance. Local Cleveland act, Shok Paris, opened upthe night with a strong set that kept the crowd on its feet andready for the headliners. With only a 15 minute or so break thestage was changed and readied for Stryper. This was going tobe a unique experience as this tour is in support of their new-est release a collection of 12 covers appropriately titled “TheCoverings”. Opening the show with several of their classic songs includ-ing: Sing Along Song, Loving You and Calling on You; as well asthe covers: Over the Mountain and Shout it out Loud. Stryperalso included two breaks in their set, one for a group prayerto pray for the all fans, families and for all those overseas aswell and then later in the set to pass out Bibles to the crowd sothat the message could be continued. Stryper then went backto playing to an electrified crowd and played hits such as Sur-render and The Way, and did encores included To Hell with theDevil and Soldiers Under Command.
