Fort McCoy Marketing Office representatives said the reaction to the concert line-up of rock ‘n’ roll superstars has been very positive.

As the only vocalist to have gold records as a member of three different bands and as a solo artist, Sammy Hagar is a vital force in music and is in a league of his own.

The Montrose albums are a cornerstone of what became heavy metal, his Van Halen years mark the summit of hard rock’s transition into the mainstream, and his soundtracks are multi-platinum.

Creed has had three, multi-platinum albums, with the last two debuting at No. 1 on the Billboard Top 200 and selling more than 26 million copies in the U.S. alone. Creed’s hits include “My Own Prison,” “Torn,” “What’s This Life For,” “One,” “Higher,” “With Arms Wide Open,” “My Sacrifice” and “One Last Breath.”

The band split after hitting professional and personal roadblocks. Their later decision to reconcile and tour with their original line-up fueled their latest album, “Full Circle.”

“This is a brand-new Creed,” said Scott Stapp, lead vocalist.

The Army Concert Tour is a Department of the Army program organized through the Family & MWR Command.

The objectives include providing safe, quality entertainment at a competitive price for Soldiers, Family members and the surrounding communities, while generating revenue for the Fort McCoy MWR Fund.

All revenue generated from this event is returned to benefit the quality of life of Soldiers by investments in new equipment, programs and facilities.

Questions can be directed to the Fort McCoy Army Concert Hotline at 877-864-4969.
