Creed, Like a Storm, Eve to Adam 

When: Wed., Sept. 5, 7:30 p.m. 2012
Price: $35-75

Officially, this year's Creed tour celebrates the 15-year anniversary of the band's breakthrough debut, My Own Prison. It also marks another reunion album from the quartet, following 2009's Full Circle. For those who don't care about whatever slight variations on Creed's melodic post-grunge formula its new songwriting may take—oh, if only that were everyone—the Florida-based quartet promises a set that sticks to its "epic hits," pulled largely from Prison and the diamond-selling follow-up, Human Clay.

But really, even for those who don't gel their hair and don Affliction apparel, would another Creed album be such a terrible thing? Left to their own devices, Creed's members simply multiplied the number of projects that aped Creed's signature sound but lacked the anthemic grandeur to match, from Scott Stapp's own instrumentally anemic album to Alter Bridge's vocally deficient string of releases and guitarist Mark Tremonti's recent metal-tinged solo spin. Besides, who wouldn't choose Creed over its less heroic, comparatively hookless bros Nickelback every day of the week and twice on Sunday (you know, because of Stapp and that whole God thing)? Sure, these rationalizations for attending a Creed reunion are tantamount to advocating for South Carolina barbecue, but the nostalgia is understandable for those whose adolescence coincided with the band's heyday. So, if you needed an excuse, you're welcome. Modern rock disciples Like a Storm and Eve to Adam open. —Spencer Griffith
