One can not compare the Creed with the Seattle group, even for the confusion that some fans do for certain songs the quartet of Florida, which resemble the sound of PJ too. But, at least live, this is the only major downside, if one can call it that, the music of Creed. On Sunday (25) evening to a packed Credicard Hall, frontman Scott Stapp continued reminding Vedder on songs like "Torn" and "With Arms Wide Open", but also helped colleagues to show that the band could easily hold a show at a place higher.
