Creed Postpones Portland Gig
All tickets for the original shows will be honored for the new dates. Refunds will also be available at point of purchase.
Creed’s booking agent, Ken Fermaglich, told Pollstar that Nickelback will appear on the rescheduled shows but he did not yet know if Sevendust would play those dates.
Creed frontman Scott Stapp was diagnosed June 12 with laryngitis and a bacterial infection. The next day, Stapp’s physician recommended postponing the June 13 show in Portland in an effort to prevent Stapp’s illness from worsening. The singer is being treated with antibiotics and has been instructed to rest for the next 48 hours.
The postponement of the Portland concert also comes as a preventative measure to help insure that the June 22 concert in San Jose will go on as scheduled. According to a statement from the band, its upcoming shows will remain on schedule.
