The popular Creed singer, Scott Stapp completed a successful solo tour in the Northeast and Midwest to which, he has added a second tour in the same regions in the early summer of 2014 with more dates to be announced soon.
Promoting his latest album and so named tour, 'Proof of Life,' Stapp has embarked on a tour in between New York and Arkansas followed by several successful dates in Europe, bringing along a full band of recognized musicians to help perform songs from his solo album, as well as hits from his Creed albums. Musicians includes drummer Chad Szeliga (Black Label Society/Breaking Benjamin), guitarist Andy Wood, bassist Andrew Waldeck (Daughtry) and guitarist Travis Comer.
The New York City show at Irving Plaza, performed on April 2, 2104, contained a packed house of fans who were on the receiving end of a great show with Stapp's songs telling his personal story and struggles in life through his lyrics and music. Notable songs performed were 'Justify,' 'Jesus Was a Rockstar' and 'Proof of Life,' from his solo works; Several Creed covers performed included Grammy winning 'With Arms Wide Open,' as well as 'Higher,' My Sarifice' and 'What If.' The crowd was found singing along to all the songs during his set to which Stapp was quite receptive by being very interactive with the crowd the whole time, which was happily received by the fans.
The 'Proof of Life' album is the result from his 2012 autobiography called 'Sinner's Creed,' in which Stapp 'details his struggles with drugs, alcohol and depression,' according to his Facebook About page.
Opening act included Like A Storm from Australia.
