Creed have some very special shows planned for fans.

The group have announced that they will perform their first two albums "My Own Prison" and "Human Clay" in their entirety, at back-to-back shows in Chicago, Philadelphia and New York next spring.

Select songs from "Weathered" and "Full Circle" will also make up the setlist at these events.

Tickets will be available on November 19.

"'My Own Prison' and 'Human Clay' are very special albums for us and I look forward to performing them for our fans. The songs bring back a lot of great memories for me and I hope for them too," said singer Scott Stapp.

2012 marks the 15-year anniversary of Creed's debut blockbuster album, "My Own Prison," which has sold over 6 million copies to date. The follow-up, 1999's massive global hit "Human Clay," has sold over 11 million copies to date and features the rock radio mainstays "With Arms Wide Open" and "Higher."

Creed 2012 tour dates:

04/13 - Chicago Theatre - Chicago, IL ("My Own Prison") 04/14 - Chicago Theatre - Chicago, IL ("Human Clay") 04/16 - Tower Theatre - Philadelphia, PA ("My Own Prison") 04/17 - Tower Theatre - Philadelphia, PA ("Human Clay") 04/19 - Beacon Theatre - New York, NY ("My Own Prison") 04/20 - Beacon Theatre - New York, NY ("Human Clay")

    No matter what anybody says, Creed rocks and always will. Mark Tremonti is one of the most underrated guitarists of the past 15 years. If anybody actually cared to listen to any other tracks other than "With arms wide open" and "Higher" they might see why this band SHOULD NOT be disliked as much as they are. Scott Stapp has grown up...so should you.

    Not heard from Creed in ages! I actually didn't mind them, had some belters. Had some awful songs too though. Hello creed, we meet again, it's been a while, where should we begin?

    I hope Scott Stapp's been able to repair his voice a bit--I saw a show on Palladia last year and he sounded horrendous--like he had the worst case of strep throat ever. And I agree with JimBonJovi--the "filler" material on their first three albums was better than a lot of the other shit that came after it (Trapt, Smile Empty Soul, etc.)

    That was from their reunion tour in 2009. I saw them then and Scott's voice was horrendously bad. But since I love Creed, I decided to give them a second chance and saw them again in 2010 and his voice was sooooo much better.

    Creed has always been one of my favorite bands. Stapps voice is coming back slowly, these 2012 shows should be great. M.O.P and H.C are great albums, even the filler. Wish they'd play a show in Maine though

    I never understood all the Creed hate. Sure scott stapp can be annoying, but they do make some good music. Listen to JimBonJovi and try listening to more than just a few of their most popular singles.

    agreed... i was offered tickets for creed 2010 and i almost turned them down because the live DVD sucked so bad... and creeds been one of my top five favorite bands since they began..... from the minute they got on stage with "Bullets" i was blown away into another dimension with how good they were!!!!!
