Creed Opens New Doors at Mohegan Sun
“Are you ready?” The familiar opening riff builds up and then the song explodes. From the starting note, Creed owned the stage tonight and proved that they were there to rock.
Creed is currently in the midst of their 2 Nights Live tour. In select cities, the band performs My Own Prison the first night and Human Clay during the second (both albums played in their entirety), and also be plays select songs from the Weathered and Full Circle albums.
During their one-night stand at the Mohegan Sun Arena, the band brought forth the same kind of high energy performance we saw in 2009. But hearing those Human Clay tracks played together again brought me back to an even earlier time; the excitement and the thrill of seeing Creed play live for the first time in 2002. You could tell by the looks on their faces that they were having a blast playing these tunes again.
Along with the high energy, Creed also brings great musicianship to the stage. Scott Stapp started the set with solid vocals but then kicked it into a higher gear after the first song. Scott Phillips and Brian Marshall provided a strong backbone while Mark Tremonti turned out the screaming guitar parts he’s known for (with the help of touring guitarist Eric Friedman).
It was great to see Creed tear it up on stage again, and judging by the roaring crowd, the fans agree.
