Heeding the rock of Creed

September 10, 1998|By J.D. Considine

Creed may be the hard-rock success story of the moment, rising from relative obscurity to platinum status in less than a year, but it hasn't let success go to its head. As guitarist Mark Tremonti told Guitar World recently, the band owes its audience to the fact that it fills a void in the marketplace.

"People have apparently missed the singer-guitar-bass-drums approach to rock and roll," said Tremonti.

If so, then they'll have no trouble getting their fill at the Merriweather Post Pavilion tomorrow. Not only is Creed playing, but so are a host of hard-and-heavy guitar bands, with Maryland's own Jimmie's Chicken Shack second on the bill, and Fuel and Finger Eleven rounding out the lineup.

Show time is 6:30 p.m. at Merriweather, Little Patuxent Parkway, Columbia, and tickets are $15 (lawn seating only). Call 410-730-2424 for information, 410-481-6500 for tickets.
