July 14, 2010 – CREED will perform an exclusive acoustic set of their hits, along with a question-and-answer session, for a webcast to be streamed live from frontman Scott Stapp’s house on Wednesday, July 14 at 7:00pm EDT. In anticipation of their soon-to-launch “20-10 Tour,” fans worldwide can tune in to www.ustream.tv/creed and rock out along with the group, courtesy of a webcast powered by Ustream, the leader in live video. Lucky fans whose questions are answered by the band on the webcast may win a pair of tickets to one of the concerts on the tour.
CREED’s “20-10 Tour” will kick off with a special show at the Hard Rock Nashville on July 26 to benefit the victims of the recent Tennessee floods, with the band pledging to donate 100% of the concert’s proceeds to local charity organization, Hands On Nashville (HON). The “20-10 Tour” is so named because the first 2,010 reserved seats are $20 all-in. This means fans pay a flat rate with no added service charges, and the remaining seats will be priced at $20 or $10, plus applicable ticketing fees.
“The 20-10 Tour” will feature new songs from CREED such as “Rain,” “Overcome” and “A Thousand Faces” from Full Circle, the band’s 2009 release and first new album in eight years, as well as hits such as “Higher,” “My Sacrifice,” “With Arms Wide Open,” “One” and more. SKILLET and THEFT will be special guests for select dates on the tour, with RED also appearing at several concerts. A full itinerary and lineup can be found below.

Creed has sold nearly 35 million albums and has performed live in front of millions since forming in 1995. Creed was the first act to have seven consecutive number one rock radio singles, four of which came off of their debut album, 1997’s My Own Prison. That album has sold more than six million copies in the U.S., and the follow-up, Human Clay, was certified Diamond for sales in excess of 11 million copies. Weathered, their third album, tied The Beatles’ Anthology for the most consecutive weeks at number one on Billboard‘s Top 200 chart. After disbanding in 2003, Creed reunited for a three-month North American tour in the fall of 2009. Following the tour, the band released their fourth album, Full Circle, which debuted on Billboard’s Top 200 chart at number two, behind Michael Jackson’s This Is It. Creed has received numerous accolades, including several American Music and Billboard Awards, and the band won the GRAMMY for Best Rock Song for “With Arms Wide Open.”
