Creed coming to the Ford Amphitheatre
If we warn you that Creed is coming to Tampa's Ford Amphitheatre on Sept. 1, would that count toward our community service? We haven't committed a crime or anything ... but the news that Creed is coming to Tampa is almost enough to make us want to go out and burn things.
Yes, Creed is coming to the FordAmp on Sept. 1, which gives you four and a half months to get your family safely out of town. No word on an opening act yet, but we're thinking a good match might be a rusty wood chipper eating a leaf blower at full power.
Hey, maybe it won't be so bad. Maybe Scott Stapp will perform his Casey and his Brother-quality Florida Marlins theme song, Marlins Will Soar. (But ... but ... marlins are fish ... not birds ... I mean ... doesn't Scott see that?) Eh, as long as he doesn't sing the national anthem, I guess we'll be fine.
All cheap shots aside, Creed is doing one cool thing on this tour. They're calling it the "20-10 Tour," which means the first 2010 reserved seats at each venue are $20 all-in, with no service fees. The rest of the seats will be priced at $20 and $10 with service fees. This is a very nice move on their part, but of course they're going about it in an appropriately douchey way, saying they're doing it "to stand up against rising concert costs." Scott Stapp: Hero to the working man. Gaze in wonderment at his bare, sweaty chest!
Tickets go onsale at 10 a.m. Saturday. Click here for details.
