Creed Cancels Tacoma And Portland Shows

Dear fans,

Scott Stapp’s medical condition has not recovered to a level that allows
for Creed’s Weathered tour to resume in Tacoma, WA on October 16th as announced
last week. Due to doctors’ strict orders for extended vocal rest, it is
with further regret that the band announces the cancellation of their shows
in Tacoma, WA (October 16th) and Portland, OR (October 17th), as well as
the postponement of their concert in Salt Lake City, UT (October 19th)
until Tuesday, December 10th. Due to the rescheduling of last week’s postponed
shows, Creed will not be able to make up the Tacoma and Portland dates
at this time but hopes to schedule Fan Appreciation concerts for both markets
next year. Tickets for the original Salt Lake City date will be honored
at the rescheduled performance and refunds are available at point of purchase.

Stapp’s condition which was diagnosed as acute laryngitis, has been
compounded by a bacterial infection. After consultation with multiple doctors
on Tuesday, Stapp was again placed on strict voice restriction and will
undergo aggressive treatment so that Creed may resume touring on October
20th at The Staples Center in Los Angeles. Doctors are confident that they
will be able to treat Stapp’s conditions and have him ready for the Los
Angeles performance.

“This year has been especially hard for all of us, and what looked to
be the biggest tour of our careers has turned into a huge disappointment
for our fans, and therefore Creed,” stated Stapp. “Creed and I take our
responsibilities very seriously, and hope that our fans will understand.
We have had problems on the West Coast in the past because of the changes
in climate and altitude, and are researching ways in which we can avoid
these problems in the future.”

Prior to Creed’s show in Las Vegas on October 4th, Stapp had been experiencing
throat problems and his attempts to sing through the show worsened his
condition. Stapp felt that his vocal performance was not up to Creed’s
standards and the band decided to play a new show in Las Vegas as a Fan
Appreciation show on Tuesday, October 29th. Tickets for the Fan Appreciation
performance went on sale Wednesday morning and sold out in 90 minutes.
