In 1997, Creed dominated mainstream rock with its debut album, “My Own Prison.” With hit singles including “What’s This Life For” and “One,” this Florida-based group gathered a legion of dedicated fans.
Creed vocalist Scott Stapp is now on his solo “Live & Unplugged Tour,” which includes a selection of raw acoustic versions of the album’s tracks along with the stories behind the songs.
“It’s exciting to think about it,” Stapp said. “It’s been 20 years since Creed’s debut album ‘My Own Prison.’ I’m just excited to celebrate that and dive into the memories of how some of the songs on that album were created and taking the fans on a journey with me.”
In addition to Creed’s material, Stapp will entertain the crowd with solo originals as well as songs from Art of Anarchy, a collaborative project with a lineup including Stapp, bassist John Moyer (Disturbed) and guitarist Ron “Bumblefoot” Thal (Lita Ford, Guns N’ Roses). The tour also features an intimate, tiered VIP experience that is a must for Creed fans.
For Stapp, these VIP experience are a special part of each show. “To hear the fans share their stories with me and my stories with them, it brings us that much closer together through the music,” he said. “It’s definitely one of the highlights of my day on my tour.”
