Re: The Official Creed Press/TV Thread

Creed scorches Darien, leaves crowd satisfied

Quote: DARIEN — For a group that reunited in 2009 to release a new album and launch a nationwide tour, Creed is sounding better than ever.

Their performance Saturday night at Darien Lake was a smash hit with the crowd, which went wild over the band’s electrifying and scorching sound — a surprise for listeners who might have only been familiar with Creed’s public persona on the radio.

Concert Review


Saturday night at the Darien Lake Performing Arts Center.

Although Creed is typically considered a post-grunge band, the band’s style in a live setting leans more toward hard, head-banging rock. But one thing is sure: the audience got what it wanted.

Creed delivered a blazing performance, and the guitar runs had the alacrity and facility of an organist playing a Bach fugue — except with much more volume.

The warm-up band, Theft, started out the night with somewhat muddy vocals but a steady beat and energetic pulse.

Creed’s performance, overall, drew a packed crowd that reveled in songs like “Higher,” “One” and “My Sacrifice.”

The lyrics hold solid messages and, therefore, encouraged listeners to sing along.

Creed, with a live sound that proved to be sufficiently full and round, welcomed a passionate audience with arms wide open.


One Nation. Indivisible.
