Scott Stapp, the soulful frontman of 90′s neo-grunge powerhouse Creed, is set to headline the Norwalk Oyster Festival on Friday, Sept. 5.
In 2013, Stapp released “Proof of Life,” his first solo album in eight years, and his first since overcoming a life-threatening drug addiction.
Mike Reilly, chairman of the Oyster Festival and a “fan of Scott Stapp and Creed,” said he was “thrilled” to have the 40-year-old singer take the stage at the three-day festival.
“Fans will be happy to know that this well-known performer will be entertaining us with all the Creed favorites as well as songs from his solo albums,” he added.
In the 1990s, Creed rose to the top of the charts, selling 60 million albums and releasing 11 No. 1 hits including “Higher” and the Grammy-winning “With Arms Wide Open.”
The musical entertainment at Norwalk Oyster Festival continues Saturday, Sept. 6 with Joan Jett & the Blackhearts.
