Scott Stapp was scheduled to play the halftime show at the Arizona Bowl football game, but announced that it’s been canceled.

The Creed and former Art of Anarchy member wrote on Twitter: “COVID strikes again. Was going to be EPIC!” He’s already looking forward to doing the show next year and said, “So the countdown begins to the 2022 Bar stool Bowl in Arizona. Minds will be blown and history will be made, BET ON IT … pun intended.”

It’s been a somewhat quiet year for Stapp, though he did lend his voice for the epic song, “Light Up the Sky” with dance producers Wooli and Trivecta.

About that, Stapp said, “When I first heard the track, I instantly started recording melodies and lyrics. The piano, builds, crescendos, drops, and overall vibes just connected right away,” said the singer. “I wanted to give voice to the idea that releasing life’s inevitable sadness, fear or regret is the first step to reclaiming the kind of intense joy and passion that this track explodes with.”

Stapp is scheduled to tour in 2022 starting with a date in Leeds United Kingdom on February 10.:


  • After Scott Weiland died in 2015, Stapp stepped in the following year and became lead singer for Art of Anarchy.
