Creed and Staind at the Amway Arena

INsite photog John Davisson went to the Creed and Staind concert at the Amway Arena in Orlando last night. Here's what he had to say:

"Last night Creed and Staind played to a half-filled Amway Arena. At the turn of the century, Staind and Creed would have easily filled the Amway Arena, but a lot has changed in the past nine years. The hits stopped coming for Staind, and Creed broke up, with Scott Stapp trying a solo career while the other members formed a new band.

Creed has reunited and is trying to re-establish the brand with a new album and tour. The Creed set featured all of their hits and a nice stage production that included a liberal dose of pyrotechnics. It almost felt like 2000 again to their hometown fans.

Staind's shorter opening set had even more emphasis on past hits. The show made me wish it was 2000 again, but as with everything else, a lot has changed since then and we can't go back."
