COLUMBIA, Maryland. – M3 Rock Festival, the definitive, can’t-miss annual gathering of heavy metal bands and those that love them, will turn back clock to the 1980s once more at Columbia, Maryland’s Merriweather Post Pavilion on Friday, April 28th and Saturday, April 29th. For the first time ever, M3 will expand to a 3rd day to host the new M3 Southern Rock Classic.

Known for its idolized metal bands and colorful, devout audience, the first two days of M3 will once again feature full sets of glam rock and heavy metal hits. The festival will take place on two separate stages, each simulcasting the other, giving fans the option to stay in one seat and watch all the bands as they appear on both stages, or move from stage to stage without missing a note.

M3 is internationally renowned, and has attracted fans from six continents, 10 countries and 40 states. Now in its ninth year, I.M.P. Presents M3 Rock Festival starts with The Official M3 Kix-Off Party, which will get things started Friday, April 28th at 3:30pm. Acts playing Friday night are KIX, Loverboy, Winger, Faster Pussycat, Dangerous Toys, Baton Rouge, and Station, with a special VIP acoustic set by Lita Ford. The full-blown 2017 M3 Rock Festival begins Saturday, April 29th at 10:30am and will include Ratt featuring the original members Pearcy, Demartini and Croucier, Cinderella’s Tom Keifer, Dokken, Warrant, Jack Russell’s Great White, Vixen, Loudness, Danger Danger, Autograph, Bang Tango, Vain, and Mitch Malloy.

For the first time, I.M.P. is adding a 3rd day by also presenting the M3 Southern Rock Classic. The all-day extravaganza will feature Lynyrd Skynyrd, Charlie Daniels Band, Outlaws, Black Stone Cherry, Molly Hatchet, Blackfoot, Great Train Robbery, and One Nite Stand.

M3 has become more than a festival. It’s a happening, a congregation of those who fell in love with Hair Metal in the ‘80s and teenagers getting in on it for the first time. Each year VIP and Pavilion seats sell out quickly. Two-day, three-day and VIP packages will go on sale Friday, Dec. 7th at 12:00pm EST through ticketfly.com. Tickets can also be purchased at the Merriweather Post Pavilion and 9:30 Club box offices. If available, single-day tickets will go on sale in the coming weeks. For more information, visit ticketfly.com or M3rockfest.com.

STRYPER – Issues Statements On Future Of Their Band

Posted in classic rock, Hard Rock, Heavy Metal, Music, music news, news, world news with tags , , , , on September 17, 2016 by Metal Odyssey

Stryper - large classic logo - 2013

From the Stryper Facebook – September 16, 2016:

As many of you know, we are preparing a tour to celebrate the 30-year anniversary of To Hell With The Devil. Although we’re extremely excited about this tour, our band and ministry is facing a crossroads for a variety of reasons, including some personal matters affecting our bassist, Tim Gaines that have affected the unity of our band.

As a result, upon the conclusion of this tour, we have decided to take a hiatus to allow each band member to think and pray about the direction of the band going forward.

We believe the right thing to do is to be open with all of you so we can continue on with integrity and put to rest any false rumors and accusations. We also believe we must honor our commitments in moving forward with the tour.

The name “Stryper” is very important to us. What (and who) it represents is even more important. We take what we do very seriously as a band and ministry and we believe it’s our duty to take this hiatus based on our faith, so we can move forward in the right way.

We do appreciate your thoughts and prayers.

God Bless you all,

Stryper

From the Stryper Facebook – September 17, 2016:

Dear friends,

To adress a few concerns regarding our most recent statement:

1 – Tim has not left the band.

2 – We felt the need to make a statement based on a multitude of emails, texts, private messages and phone calls. Because of this, we felt that the right thing to do was to make you all aware of the situation before the tour rather than start the tour based on false rumors, speculations and gossip. We respect you all and you mean everything to us so we wanted to at least present a statement that would put to rest (at least to some degree) all the here say.

3 – The tour IS continuing. We are NOT canceling or postponing the tour. We made this decision based on honoring our commitments, as originally planned, with the original lineup.

4 – Stryper is not breaking up. We plan to take some time after the tour to reevaluate things and at the right time, we will proceed. There is more planned and we are looking forward to that.

5 – As stated, we are a ministry every bit as much as we are a rock band. Because of this, we have to deal with things accordingly and biblically. We’re not perfect, but we are accountable to God and each other. At least we should be. That’s not to be taken lightly or passively.

6 – Before you comment and respond emotionally, please understand that we have thought, prayed, talked and counseled with others for weeks about the right way to handle all of this. Our decision to release a statement with the content that it contains was based on patience, wisdom and honor. We’re trying to do the right thing. That’s all we can do.

Here’s to a great tour and God Bless you all!

Stryper

Being that its only 6 shows, we are going to make it as spectacular as possible”

After launching on October 5 in Osaka, Japan, the quartet will then head to Fukuoka, Tokyo (for the Loud Park Festival) before continuing on to Hiroshima, Aichi and finally, back to Tokyo for the final show on October 12th. Dokken’s Tooth and Nail, released in 1984, contained several hit songs including “Alone Again”, “Just Got Lucky” and “Into the Fire” and sold over three million copies worldwide and the band continued releasing many more records with the same success.

Tickets for this once in a lifetime event, as well as VIP package experiences, will be on sale beginning August 27th. This will be the one and only opportunity for fans to see the original line-up play their iconic hits.
