Creed band 2023

After previously announcing a pair of music cruises, platinum rockers Creed are taking their reunion on the road. The band announced Monday plans for an extensive North American tour, set to launch on July 17 at the Resch Center in Green Bay, Wisconsin. The run wraps up on September 28 at Hard Rock Live at Etess Arena inside the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino in Atlantic City, New Jersey. Very special guests for the trek will be 3 Doors Down, Daughtry, Switchfoot, Tonic, Big Wreck, and Finger Eleven on select dates. Check out the full tour itinerary below, and the tour preview video.

In addition to the headlining shows, Creed will also be putting on a special one-day festival dubbed Summer of ’99 and Beyond with 3 Doors Down, Daughtry, Finger Eleven, Fuel, Vertical Horizon, and The Verve Pipe on Saturday, August 31 at the Glen Helen Amphitheatre in San Bernardino, California.

It will be interesting to see if the band decides to play their watershed album, Human Clay, in full on this upcoming tour. Next year marks the 25 anniversary of the multi-platinum LP, and the tour wraps up on the album’s actual released date – September 28. Creed’s sophomore effort, Human Clay was highlighted by four huge hit singles – “Higher,” “What If,” “With Arms Wide Open,” and “Are You Ready?” The chart-topping ballad “With Arms Wide Open” garnered the band the GRAMMY® Award for Best Rock Song. Since its release, Human Clay has received the rare diamond certification from the RIAA for selling over 10 million copies.

Artist pre-sale begins tomorrow, Tuesday, October 31 at 10am local time and runs through Thursday, November 2 at 10pm using the code: HIGHER. Venue pre-sales also begin tomorrow using the code: SUMMEROF99. General tickets go on sale this Friday, November 3 at 10am local time. VIP Packages will also be available for all dates.

At all shows, guitarist Mark Tremonti is offering a very special VIP experience, which includes a 60-minute guitar clinic, a backstage tour of Mark’s guitars and road rig, plus an intimate Meet & Greet with Mark himself.

Back in July, Creed confirmed a special reunion music cruise. The two five-day rock excursion sets sail from Miami in April, cruising down to Nassau, Bahamas. In addition to headliners Creed, the trip will also feature 3 Doors Down, Buckcherry, Tonic, Vertical Horizon, Fuel, The Verve Pipe, Tantric, Dishwalla, Nine Days, and Louise Post of Veruca Salt. Due to overwhelming demand, a second cruise was added after the first sold out.

Last year, Creed celebrated the 25th anniversary of their seminal debut album My Own Prison. The band reissued the record on vinyl for the very first time. Featuring the hits “Torn,” “What’s This Life For,” “One,” and “My Own Prison,” the multi-platinum album has gone on to sell over 6 million copies in the United States alone.

Released in 1997, My Own Prison marked the beginning of a rarified journey for Scott Stapp (vocals), Mark Tremonti (guitar), Brian Marshal (bass), and Scott Phillips (drums). Formed in Tallahassee, FL, in 1994, Creed was the brainchild of longtime friends Stapp and Tremonti, who first started writing together while attending Florida State University. Soon, the group gelled into a four-piece and set up shows around the city. It was at one of those gigs that Creed caught the ears of club owner and artist manager Jeff Hanson, who began working with the talented band. Hanson paired the group with producer, songwriter, and musician John Kurzweg, who recorded My Own Prison in his home. The self-released album became a hot commodity at local radio stations, selling more than 6,000 copies within its first month. Before long, Wind-Up Records discovered the young act—promptly signing them and re-mixing My Own Prison for wide release.

Creed have not toured together since 2013. Their last studio effort was 2009’s Full Circle, which featured the hit singles “Overcome” and “A Thousand Faces.” Since then, frontman Scott Stapp released his acclaimed third album The Space Between the Shadows in 2019. Guitarist Mark Tremonti churned out four Tremonti albums. Mark, along with fellow Creed members Scott Phillips and Brian Marshall, unleashed four more Alter Bridge albums including the masterful Fortress (2013) and their latest opus, Pawns & Kings (2022).

Stapp recently confirmed his forthcoming solo effort, Higher Power. His fourth LP, the record arrives on March 15, 2024 thought Napalm Records. Stapp also revealed a new single, “What I Deserve. The track features an appearance by award-winning guitar great, Yiannis Papadopoulos.

Artist pre-sale for Creed’s tour next year begins tomorrow, Tuesday, October 31 at 10am local time and runs through Thursday, November 2 at 10pm using the code: HIGHER. Venue pre-sales also begin tomorrow using the code: SUMMEROF99. General tickets go on sale this Friday, November 3 at 10am local time. VIP Packages will also be available for all dates.
