Michael Sweet outlines why Stryper should be 4th band on Mötley Crüe, Def Leppard & Poison tour
Mötley Crüe were seemingly forced to confirm that they will be going on tour again but their tour package with Def Leppard and Poison has not been formally confirmed by any of the three bands. There are some indications that the Mötley Crüe, Def Leppard and Poison tour package is in the works since there has been at least one report of the price tag of $3,250,000 being pitched for the tour. One rumour is that there will be a fourth band added to the tour and Stryper apparently want in!
The following message was posted on Sweet‘s Facebook page earlier today:
“4 reasons @Stryper is the most logical choice to be the 1st of 4 on the Motley Crue tour:
1. Because Motley Crue has never done things “by the book”. They’ve always surprised people, and adding Stryper to the tour would definitely raise some eyebrows.
2. Musically it works. It just does. I look at our audiences every night and see Motley Crue and Def Leppard & Poison T-shirts. Whether we allwant to admit it or not, we have the same fan bases for the most part. Albeit their fan base is much larger than ours, but musically I think it would work perfectly. Stryper is at the top of our game musically right now. And I think the entire tour will be performing at its best.
3. The encore could be an epic mash-up of Shout at the Devil and To Hell with the Devil?
4. More than ever in the history of music we need someone to make a bold statement that says “No matter how different we may seem, as human beings we’re really all the same.” This is Motley Crue‘s chance to unite a very divided world right now. For them to say “Yeah, we may (or may not) believe the same thing as Stryper, but we’re all human beings and we should all get along with one another, no matter what we believe”
Whatever happens, this scenario would be epic. And certainly the most unique.
