QUICK TAKES

Creed fans get remorse, not refunds

September 20, 2003|From Associated Press

A Chicago judge has dismissed a lawsuit brought by two couples who'd sought a court-ordered refund because they were displeased with a concert by the rock band Creed.

The couples claimed in a lawsuit filed in April that singer Scott Stapp "was so intoxicated and/or medicated ... he was unable to sing the lyrics of a single Creed song" during a Dec. 29 performance at the Allstate Arena in suburban Rosemont.

Creed, whose songs carry a Christian subtext, apologized for the show but fought the couples' demand to be reimbursed for their $56.75 tickets. The couples also sought refunds for everyone else who attended the concert.

Creed's attorneys compared a mass refund to Chicago Cub fans asking for their money back when slugger Sammy Sosa was suspended in June for using a corked bat.
