The polarizing Christian rock band Creed will perform its 1999 album “Human Clay” at Denver’s Paramount Theatre this spring, promoter Live Nation announced this morning.

Creed, one of dozens of alternative rock bands inspired by the grunge phenomenon of the early ’90s, will embark on a coast-to-coast tour beginning April 13 in Chicago, Ill. The tour will make a stop at the Paramount Theatre in Denver on May 19. Creed will also perform select songs from the “Weathered” and “Full Circle” albums, according to the promoter. In select cities with two scheduled dates, the band will perform “My Own Prison” in its entirety the first night and “Human Clay” the second.

From the release:

“Since their formation in 1995, Tallahassee natives Scott Stapp (vocals), Mark Tremonti (guitar), Brian Marshall (bass) and Scott Phillips (drums), better known as Creed, have gone on to be one of the most successful bands in rock history; selling close to thirty-five million albums and millions of concert tickets. The band’s debut, ‘My Own Prison,’ was released in 1997 and has sold over six million copies in the U.S. The follow-up, 1999’s ‘Human Clay,’ has been certified Diamond for sales in excess of 11 million copies.”

And no, this success has nothing to do with the idea that Stapp may or may not have completely ripped off the tone, style and inflection of Pearl Jam’s Eddie Vedder.

Tickets for the Denver date, $39.50-$$79.50 plus service fees, go on sale 10 a.m. Friday through TicketHorse.
