This weekend Scott Stapp, the voice of legendary Rock band Creed, kicks off his world tour with his first ever South African shows.
South African fans will be hearing a selection of the biggest Creed songs live as Stapp takes to the stage with his full band, rocking out to hits such as ‘With Arms Wide Open’, ‘Higher’, ‘My Sacrifice’, and ‘One Last Breath’.
“Get ready for a rock show to remember,” says the front man. “For the first time I will be bringing my South African fans on a journey through my life with music from Creed and my solo albums,” adds Stapp.
Joining Stapp on stage at each of the shows will be a selection of SA’s top artists. The tour kicks off at the Botanical Gardens in Pretoria on Saturday, December 12, and will see a power line-up with Scott and local guests Karen Zoid, Van Coke Kartel, Lost&Found, and IV4 taking to the stage.
Sunday’s concert (December 13) at Heia Safari Ranch will have Jozi rock out to Stapp and guest artists Prime Circle, Lost&Found and Howie Combrink.
Stapp co-founded and fronted Creed, achieving great commercial success in the late 1990s with numerous hit singles. Creed released three consecutive multi-platinum albums, of which ‘Human Clay’ has been certified diamond, collectively selling over 53 million albums worldwide and becoming the ninth best-selling artist of the 2000s. In 2001 ‘With Arms Wide Open’ also won Creed a Grammy Award for Best Rock Song. Stapp pursued his solo career after Creed went on break in 2004 and released two solo albums with his debut ‘The Great Divide’ (2005) and the most recent release ‘Proof of Life’ (2013).
