Scott Stapp sold out the massive Quicken Loans Arena multiple times with his former band, Creed. He was at times, for all intensive purposes, the biggest rock star of the world in the late 90’s early 2000’s. Scott will be celebrating the 20th Anniversary of Creed’s ‘My Own Prison’ with his “Live and Unplugged” tour that stops at the Kent Stage on Thursday, May 25!
Stapp, with Creed, chronicled his questions, his quest for answers, and his dreams from faith to fatherhood in chart topping hits, “My Own Prison,” “Higher,” and “With Arms Wide Open,” which dominated the sonic landscape of the 90s-2000s. His soul-piercing lyrics backed by thundering rock riffs garnered a Grammy award, and countless other accolades of creativity and chart domination, not to mention legions of fans, who felt a kindred spirit in his honesty.
Despite internal turbulence in his life, Stapp’s creativity, passion, and desire to be transparent in his struggle never waned, and were evident on his debut solo album, ‘The Great Divide’ (2005), the ‘Full Circle’ album from a “rebirthed” Creed in 2009, several tours, his starkly revealing memoir, Sinner’s Creed (2012), and his highly-acclaimed second solo album, ‘Proof of Life,’ in 2013, which brought Scott’s first number one song on the Christian charts. With the love and support of his family, Scott has continued to live a balanced, healthy and sober lifestyle, grounded in faith. He has a fresh purpose in performing, writing, and singing, to bring hope to “even one person” who is amidst the kind of struggle he knows. Hope has always been a theme of his music, and now, that level of hope takes on a whole new dimension. In gratitude for the many interventions made
