Scott Stapp will perform new material with his new band, as well as Creed classics, including songs like record-breaking hit "Higher," "What If," "My Sacrifice" and Grammy-winner "With Arms Wide Open."

Scott Stapp’s 2013 solo album, "Proof of Life," tells the story of Stapp’s journey, beginning with his long relationship with Creed.

“I made up my mind to face myself as a man and an artist. This record is my first no-holds-barred statement of exactly who I am,” Stapp says.

It was 1997 when "My Own Prison," the debut multi-platinum Creed album, kicked off Stapp's musical journey. As the lead vocalist and sole storyteller, Stapp sculpted his own aesthetic. From the start, his spiritual conflicts galvanized a worldwide audience. Three other mega-selling records followed — "Human Clay" (1999), "Weathered" (2002) and "Full Circle" (2009), in addition to Stapp’s successful solo venture, "The Great Divide" (2005).

Awarded a Grammy in 2001 for his number-one hit, "With Arms Wide Open," Stapp was celebrated.

With the publication in 2012 of Sinner’s Creed, his autobiography, Stapp detailed his struggles with drugs, alcohol and depression.

“That book was incredibly cathartic,” he says, “and enabled me to release a lifetime of pent-up feelings about my past. Sinner’s Creed paved the way for 'Proof of Life,' which, in musical terms, is another reaffirmation of my personal history. There were years when I thought it had all been a waste. I looked around at the damage I had done and thought — man, I’ve made a mess. But now I see that I’m able turn that mess into a message. That message takes the form of songs that comprise the spine of my story.”

And his story isn’t complete without his family.

“Without the support of my wife Jacyln and our three kids — standing by me every step of the way — this new day would never be possible."

He also credits his faith, “the faith that lets us see that we are not only protected, but nurtured and preserved by a love that knows no limits.”

Tickets for Scott Stapp are $59 for premium seating, $49 for orchestra and $39 for balcony. Purchase tickets by visiting www.thenewtontheatre.com or contact the box office at 973-383-3700.
