Creed Reform and Announce their First Shows in 10 Years!

Published on 20 July 2023

“Well ahh just heard the news today…”

Yes indeed, in a move that nobody saw coming, it seems that Scott Stapp’s Creed bandmates have finally welcomed him back, ‘with arms wide oh-paan’, to reform!

The multi-million band better known nowadays as Alter Bridge (with vocalist Myles Kennedy) have unexpectedly taken back their original god-bothering frontman for a series of special performances aboard a rock ‘n’ roll cruise ship.

These cruises are becoming more and more popular, with fans enjoying the privileged bliss of a marine luxury boat-city during the day and a series of curated performances by bands big, medium and small during the evenings. This particular one, dubbed the Summer of ‘99, seems to be geared towards Creed’s pre-millennial heyday, when the airwaves were ruled by the likes of them, Limp Bizkit and the Offspring. Was that all really so long ago?

Joining the newly reformed Creed - who went on ‘hiatus’ ten years ago - are a number of bands you may sort of remember, such as 3 Doors Down and Buckcherry. Here’s a quote direct from Messrs Stapp & Co:

“We are beyond stoked to announce that we will be reuniting on the Summer of ‘99 Cruise, sailing April 18 – 22, 2024 from Miami, FL to Nassau, Bahamas aboard the Norwegian Pearl. Get ready for earth-shattering performances from very special guests, 3 Doors Down, as well as Buckcherry, Tonic, Vertical Horizon, Fuel, The Verve Pipe, Tantric, Dishwalla, Louise Post (of Veruca Salt) and Nine Days!”

Will this mean a worldwide tour for Creed? Does it spell the end for Alter Bridge? Is this pretty unfortunate timing for those Myles Kennedy signature PRS guitars? Only time will tell - and April 2024 is still a good while away so we’ll see what transpires -  but for the band’s army of fans, this must feel like pretty special news!
