Scott Stapp on Live Series That Will Also Include 'Human Clay': 'We're Doing This for Our Fans'
Creed will pay homage to its debut album with a series of special shows in April -- and throw in its follow-up for good measure.
The group will celebrate the 15th anniversary of its six-times-platinum "My Own Prison" by performing six shows in three cities -- April 13-14 at the Chicago Theatre, April 16-17 at Philadelphia's Tower Theatre and April 19-20 at the Beacon Theatre in New York. The first night in each town will feature "My Own Prison" in its entirety along with selections from Creed's other three albums, while the second show will showcase 1999's 11-times platinum "Human Clay" from front-to-back, along with additional songs.
"We're doing this for our fans," Creed frontman Scott Stapp tells Billboard.com. "They've talked so much on Twitter and Facebook, 'Play more songs... off the 'My Own Prison' album and off the 'Human Clay' album' -- and the same with the (2001) 'Weathered' album and even on to (2009's) 'Full Circle.' The band got together, and management, and we were sitting around chatting one day; I don't remember who came up with the concept, but we just totally fell in love with the idea -- going to small venues, playing the albums top to bottom. I think it's a great way for the band to reconnect to our roots and with each other and with our fans in a very intimate way that they've asked for." (Photo: Getty Images)
