Stryper man Michael Sweet tours with rock megastars Boston

THE SINGER with glam rock veterans Stryper, Michael Sweet is touring North America this summer with mainstream band Boston. Boston have sold over 30 million albums worldwide, including the band's 1976 self-titled debut which has clocked up sales of over 17 million copies and was the highest selling debut of all time. The tour will take in 54 cities. Said Sweet, "The tour has been a breath of fresh air and yet so surreal. I'm standing next to Tom Scholz, trading guitar solos and having the time of my life. Boston is such a big part of my musical background and this music helped shape who I am as an artist, writer, producer and musician. It truly is 'More Than A Feeling!'"

Prior to the commencement of the 2008 Boston tour, Stryper put the finishing touches on a new studio record, 'Murder By Pride', to be released in 2009. The album will include a cover of the Boston song "Peace Of Mind" that features Boston guitarist Tom Scholz on the recording. CR
