Scott Stapp of Creed

Tuesday, June 20, 2017, 8:00 PM


with Art of Dying, Jeremy of Willett
Scott Stapp, one of rock-n-rolls most iconic voices, has unveiled exciting new details of his return to the road this summer on his "Live and Unplugged solo tour and has just added an exclusive engagement at RockHouse Live Memphis, on June 20th, 2017. Inspired by the 20thanniversary of Creeds My Own Prison, the tour offers fans personal and intimate performances that first drew them into the power, angst and raw emotion of the songs on that mega-selling debut album. Reminiscent of MTV Unplugged and VH1s Storytellers, the stripped-down acoustic performances will create an unfiltered environment where the songs will speak, and the lyricist who brought them to life will share behind-the-scenes details of its creation. Joining Stapp on tour when Live and Unplugged kicks off in May and June will be legendary rock guitarist, accomplished singer, songwriter and producer Ron Bumblefoot Thal, formerly of Guns N' Roses, and current Art of Anarchy bandmate. Supporting acts for the tour include Art Of Dying.Zach Bair, president of RockHouse Live Media Productions, Inc., and CEO of DiscLive (disclivenetwork.com) and VNUE, Inc. (OTC:VNUE vnue.com), said we are extremely excited to announce this intimate engagement with Scott at RockHouse Live. It has been about 17 years since he last performed in Memphis, with Creed. And on a personal note, Ive had the pleasure to work with his fellow Creed bandmates in Alter Bridge on live recordings, and for me, having Scott play in my venue brings it full circle. In August of 1997, Creed released My Own Prison. Almost instantly, the band was catapulted from being known as the best band in Florida clubs to being America's premier hard rock band. Once the passion of Creeds captivating live performances met with the production mastery and musical talents of John Kurzweg, there was no turning back. The album showcased the intrinsic connection between songwriters Scott Stapp and Mark Tremonti, a brilliant artistry that continued throughout their collaboration. The record initially cost only $6,000.00 to produce, and remains one of the top-selling albums of all time. It generated four Top 5 singles, certified 6x platinum by RIAA, and is one of the top 200 selling albums of all time in the United States. For Stapp, 2016 was a packed year filled with touring, songwriting, and collaborations. In between segments of his solo Proof of Life Tour, Stapp was also writing, rehearsing, and performing with the super group, Art of Anarchy. Today, celebrating his twenty year career, Stapp reflects how the influence of My Own Prison enriched his journey over the last two decades. Stapp says, "It still feels like yesterday, the four of us jamming these songs in a basement in Tallahassee, FL not having a clue that these songs would change our lives forever. My Own Prison started it all for us. This was the breakthrough album that started Creed's career. It still amazes me that I hear songs from this record played on the radio today. I'll be playing a collections of songs from this record as well as my entire career to date. Bumblefoot and I even have a couple new Art of Anarchy songs in store for the fans."
