Coming off the heels of 2013’s successful inaugural Stryper Fan Excursion, the group has announced the dates and location for year two. Mark your calendar for October 10th - 12th, 2014 and plan to be in Raleigh, North Carolina. Stryper frontman Michael Sweet has checked in with the following update on the Excursion:
"We just recently went live with the second Stryper Fan Excursion/Weekend and we're super excited to hang with all of you in Raleigh, NC! If you purchase your package now (August 6th) you will save a little cash. The price goes up a bit after August 6th. Last year's event was absolutely amazing and this year's will be even more so. We're planning a lot of really cool things and it's a chance for us to get to know our friends/fans on a deeper level and to spend one on one time with all of you. Oz, Robert, Tim and myself are counting the days and we're really looking forward to this! Get your packages now and we'll see you soon in the Deep South! God Bless you guys and always, L&R."

Since Stryper re-united in 2002, Raleigh would spend the next 12 years as the headquarters for the band. Their management team, Deep South Entertainment was (and is) in Raleigh. The Stryper.com merchandising company (Port Merchandise) is also based in Raleigh. And the band even had a monumental sold-out reunion show at Raleigh's historic Lincoln Theater on that tour, where part of the 7 Weeks: Live in America album was recorded.
Raleigh has been the single longest standing headquarters for Stryper since they first became a band in the ‘80s.
