Stryper – Fan-Filmed Video Footage of Sydney Show


Fan-filmed video footage of Stryper‘s Sydney Show at Max Watts in Sydney (Aug. 18) can be watched below.

The band is touring without its guitarist Oz Fox, who was forced to stay home after collapsing onstage during a Las Vegas performance. Doctors who have been treating him have found two tumors in his head — one by his ear and the other in the back of his brain.

Oz‘s wife, Annie Lobért, wrote in a Facebook post that he “cannot drive, fly or work for three months because of the potential seizures.” Furthermore, Stryper has had to cancel its Japanese shows because Oz cannot perform due to his medical condition.

The band’s frontman, Michael Sweet, said in a Facebook post that he’s been friends with Oz since he was “almost 13 years old. We’ve been a ‘duo’ for almost our entire lives and I love him,” he wrote. “He’s family and a brother to me… We’re all waiting to hear good news and we’re all praying deeply for that.

“The important thing right now is Oz‘s health and well being,” Sweet added. “Please continue to pray for him at this time. Pray for Annie and his family as well.” [read more]

The follow-up to 2015’s “Fallen” marks Stryper‘s first effort since the addition of former Firehouse bassist Perry RichardsonPerry joined the band as the replacement for Stryper‘s longtime bassist Tim Gaines, who was fired from the group last year.

Perry did not play bass on Stryper‘s new album due to scheduling constraints. The bass tracks on “God Damn Evil”were laid down by John O’Boyle, who played bass on Sweet‘s last two solo albums.
