Review of Scott’s Hard Rock Performance from RARA’s Farm – Florida’s Almanac of Rock Music
Scott Stapp Offers an Intimate Show
It’s always cool catching a local musician playing an intimate show in a cozy venue; sharing stories about the songs he sings and mixing with the crowd. It’s even nicer when it’s free, and priceless when the singer is an engaging superstar like Scott Stapp of Creed. Last night at The Velvet Lounge at The Hard Rock Hotel a small group of fans were treated to a special evening with the reformed rock legend playing to a small appreciative crowd.
Stapp was joined on stage by Brent Look on guitar. Look was introduced as the drum teacher for Stapp’s son Jagger and a cool guy to jam with. The duo seemed to be having a great time and enjoyed playing with each other in the kicked back Velvet Lounge acoustic setting. The sixty-minute set featured some of Creed’s greatest hits, a few solo Stapp selections and a couple of deeper cuts.
In the past, Stapp was often viewed as a bit of a pompous, self-centered ass, but throughout this show you’d never get that opinion. He was just your local rocker chilling and chatting with some close friends. He was humble and appreciative throughout and sounded great as he offered all of the songs with a new twist. He was quickly bathed in sweat as he poured himself into the songs.
The Creed front man was not at all over-bearing with his strong faith, yet he introduced “Higher” as a song about heaven; and before playing “Arms Wide Open” mentioned being inspired by Cristo Redentor, the huge Jesus status overlooking Rio de Janeiro. Over his career, he’s become quite the philanthropist and on this night focused raising money for the Imagine There’s No Hunger foundation.
I enjoyed hearing “Justify” and “Weathered,” the latter one where he playfully admitted to forgetting a few words in the second verse. There were also a few nice sing-along moments that left Stapp appreciative, including “My Sacrifice” and the finale “One Last Breath,” where he closed with “That was beautiful my friends.”
Scott’s busy week concluded with another great turnout for the December 14th book signing at Lifeway Book Stores in Ft Lauderdale!
As a tribute to the tragic events at Sandy Hook Elementary earlier that day, Scott chose to sing “What’s This Life For.”
Passion Breeds Followers wishes everyone a Blessed and Merry Christmas, and asks as you celebrate with family and friends to please remember the precious victims and families of Newtown, CT in your thoughts and prayers.
Creed Tour 2012 finished full throttle in Puerto Rico after an amazing trek through South America. At every stop the crowds greeted Scott and the guys With Arms Wide Open! The fans, so grateful to finally have their favorite frontman and band on their home turf, sang out their appreciation and love by the thousands – filling each venue to the brim! Their love did not return void as Scott poured out his soul every night through every song – the energy and power was palpable!
No matter how big the crowd or venue, Scott’s voice and message transcends the distance and makes you feel like you’re just feet away. To prove that point, check out these videos from Puerto Rico:
