St. Petersburg, Fla. (Oct. 19, 2015) – Scott Stapp, one of rock ‘n’ roll’s great voices, is returning to the road in 2016. The former Creed frontman brings his Proof of Life tour to The Palladium Theater Friday, Jan. 15 at 8 p.m., part of our “Mahaffey on the Move” series.
The Proof of Life album followed his uncensored memoir, Sinner’s Creed, in which Stapp shared his life story for the first time – from his fundamentalist upbringing, the rise of Creed, and his ongoing battle with addiction, the rediscovery of his faith, and the launch of his solo career.
Scott Stapp has sold nearly 50 million albums with Creed, had three Grammy nominations and one win (for Best Rock Song with “With Arms Wide Open”), plus 11 No. 1 singles including “My Own Prison,” “Torn,” “What’s This Life For” and “Overcome.” Creed released six albums, including the multi-platinum My Own Prison, Weathered and Human Clay.
After an extended, self-imposed absence from the public arena, Stapp is renewed and refreshed. “I’m hitting the road now with bigger purpose,” he says. “It’s not about me. If I can affect one person out there who has felt my darkness, I want to share some hope and let them know they’re not alone and how grateful I am to pass on this gift that’s been given to me.”
