Creed’s reunion at the Summer of ’99 cruise isn’t a one-and-done deal. In addition to performing during the cruise from Miami to the Bahamas in April, the rock band announced it will hit the road next summer for 40 shows, marking the first time Creed has toured in more than a decade.
The Grammy Award-winning band, comprised of Scott Stapp, Mark Tremonti, Brian Marshall and Scott Phillips, will embark on the Live Nation-produced “Summer of ’99 Tour,” which kicks off at Resch Center in Green Bay, Wisconsin, on July 17, with 3 Doors Down, Daughtry, Switchfoot, Tonic and Big Wreck joining the band as supporting acts on various dates. The route includes stops at Charlotte’s PNC Music Pavilion, Riverbend Music Center in Cincinnati, Nashville’s Ascend Amphitheater, Xfinity Center in Boston, The Cynthia Woods Mitchell Pavilion in Houston and Jacksonville’s Daily’s Place before wrapping up at Hard Rock Live at Etess Arena in Atlantic City, New Jersey, on Sept. 28.
One of the dates includes the band hosting Summer of ’99 and Beyond Festival, an exclusive inaugural event at Glen Helen Amphitheatre in San Bernardino, California, on Aug. 31 that will feature 3 Doors Down, Daughtry, Finger Eleven, Fuel, Vertical Horizon and The Verve Pipe in support.
Presale tickets are available Oct. 31 at 10 a.m. local time, and the general onsale begins Nov. 3 at 10 a.m. local time. VIP packages that may include premium tickets, meet and greets, photo opportunities and a chance to be on stage for a few songs will also be available.

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. They have sold more than 53 million records worldwide.
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.”
The most recent box office reports to Pollstar for Creed include a Dec. 8, 2012, show at Coliseo de Puerto Rico in Hato Rey that sold 4893 tickets and grossed $310,815. The most recent U.S. reports include a Sept. 7, 2012, performance at Atlantic City’s House Of Blues that sold 1,253 tickets and grossed $62,034. Over the years Creed has submitted 247 headline reports to Pollstar with an average of 9,427 tickets sold per show and an average gross of $318,961.
Earlier this year Stapp signed with CAA for representation.
In 2020 Stapp appeared as a speaker at Pollstar Live! in Beverly Hills where he took part in an intimate one-on-one conversation with Ray Waddell, president of Oak View Group Media & Conferences. During the panel, Stapp shared about his journey to find sobriety after struggling with addiction and depression and praised the non-profit organization MusiCares, which provides assistance for musicians in times of need.
