Why does it look like Robert's hair is on fire in the 2016 shot?

They are coming to Nashville this month on a Wednesday night.  For us youth ministers, that is a work night.  I will have to skip them this time.

^^ Ha. "This time." At least there IS a "this time." The last time they bothered to even acknowledge that SD exists I was in college... 25 years ago! The only way I'll get to see them is if I fork over several 100 denaro to go to some major city several hours away.

They will be in Minneapolis on November 2. That's eight hours away, which means I'd have to pay at least $100 for gas and over $100 for decent lodging, raising the cost of the ticket from $35 to between $250 and $350, depending on food purchase. If this were summer I could ride my motorcycle, thus cutting the gas cost in half at least, and stay in a tent at a campground outside the city, cutting my lodging bill considerably. Even then the trip would probably cost between $150 and $200.

Of course I don't expect bands to small towns like mine in central SD (although some have; Kutless was here, as was Ashes Remain and a few others), but if they would at least come to Rapid City or Sioux Falls then the trip would be do-able. I'd sure like to know why more bands don't come here; I can't believe it's all because of the money. After all, Motley Crue came here as part of their final tour; several big country artists come here, Five Finger Death Punch and Shinedown are coming here.

Sorry.  Rant complete.

Have only seen them one time, would love to see them again. The closest they are coming here is Jacksonville which is over 4 hours away. I saw them on the original THWTD tour. I went with our youth group. Met Robert and Tim at the mall that day! Loudness and TNT opened, it was an awesome show! I remember Loudness being awesome but to this day I am still not familiar with their music.

I'll look for you! Did you come back to IN? I thought you moved to PA. I suspect we'll be near the back since our wives will be with us. BTW, my pastor is a metal guitarist, too. Thumbs Up

Good idea! Mine was, our youth pastor bought all of our tickets together and we went as a youth group back in 1987!

If the youth in the group are anything like my daughter and her friends, they would not appreciate tickets to a Stryper concert. LeCrae perhaps, even Skillet or TFK, but not a metal band like Stryper.

That makes sense. As a 16 year old in 1987 it would be awesome... Not so much 30 years later.

Just to add a note, if you do take a youth group and secular rock is an issue, before the show the music is all secular. They played Dio, Maiden, Priest, Motorhead along with all the other 80s hard rock bands.

With that being said, they played a little video before the show began detailing their history that boldly proclaimed Jesus.

I'll be at the show in Nashville (it's 3 hours away). It is an over 18 show, so a youth group couldn't go if they wanted to. My wife got me the V.I.P. meet & greet package. I can't wait.

I've been to several "over 21 shows" that were obviously in venues with a bar...or just a bar, but I don't think I've ever heard of an "over 18 show".  What's up with that?

Um... because my youth aren't into rock.  If they were, they are not into "old people music".

lol!

Yes she is. She knows it's probably a once in a lifetime thing for me. It's also my Christmas present, for this year and most likely the next 10 Christmases. lol
