Creed is back! The rock band has announced its first public live performances since 2012 with a spot confirmed on the April 2024 Sixthman cruise Summer Of ‘99.

Fans will have to wait and see if a tour or album is in the works from Scott Stapp, Mark Tremonti, Brian Marshall and Scott Phillips. For now, Creed has shared this message on social media: “The wait is over! We are beyond stoked to announce that we will be reuniting on the Summer of ‘99 Cruise, sailing April 18 – 22, 2024 from Miami, FL to Nassau, Bahamas aboard the Norwegian Pearl.”

Summer Of ‘99 promises “an exclusive live Q&A with Creed open to all guests, activities with bands and podcast hosts, panels, autograph sessions, and a very special Y2K Countdown theme party.” The cruise also includes a shore excursion to Nassau, Bahamas.

Since forming in Tallahassee, Florida, in 1994, Creed released four studio albums. Following the band’s 1997 debut My Own Prison – which included the title track single, “What’s This Life For” and “One” – the band released Human in 1999 and Weathered in 2001, with both albums hitting No. 1 on the Billboard 200. The group split up in 2004 and then returned five years later with Full Circle, which charted at No. 1 on the Top Rock, Hard Rock, and Alternative charts and No. 2 on the Billboard 200.

Creed won a Grammy Award for its 2000 hit song “With Arms Wide Open,” as well as a nomination for Best Rock Performance by a Duo or Group with Vocal. Two years later, the band earned another nomination in the latter category for “My Sacrifice.”
