Stone Temple Pilots Announce North American Tour Dates

According to Mitchell Peters from Billboard.biz, the reunited STONE TEMPLE PILOTS solidified their summer reunion tour plans last night (April 7) with a brief performance at the former estate of magician Harry Houdini, tucked away in Los Angeles' Hollywood Hills.

The group's 30-minute set, its first since disbanding in 2002, featured modern rock radio staples such as 'Big Empty', 'Plush', 'Interstate Love Song' and 'Vasoline'. Frontman Scott Weiland didn't say much, but he made one thing clear to the hundreds of radio contest winners, celebrities and music industry onlookers: "We're back and we're going on tour this summer."

As previously reported, STP will embark on a full-fledged summer amphitheater tour of North America, beginning with the Rock on the Range festival on May 17 at Columbus, Ohio's Columbus Crew Stadium. Live Nation will produce many dates on the upcoming 65-date trek. The group's last tour in 2002 grossed nearly $1.3 million from 13 concerts that drew approximately 42,000 concertgoers, according to Billboard Boxscore.
