The Stone Temple Pilots Tour

Tour details announced.

Plans for a six-week tour by the Stone Temple Pilots were

announced yesterday. The tour will kick off in Los Angeles on November 4 at the

Universal Amphitheatre. Also confirmed are shows on Nov. 7 at the Arizona

Memorial Coliseum in Phoenix, Nov. 8 at the Irvine Meadows Amphitheater, Nov. 9

at the San Jose Arena in San Jose , Nov. 11 at the Key Arena in Seattle and

Nov. 16 at the Starplex Amphitheatre in Dallas. The group expects the tour to

take them to 30 U. S. cities including Pittsburgh, Houston, Miami, New York,

Chicago, Cleveland, Philadelphia, Boston, and Washington DC. The group's third

album, Tiny Music...Songs from the Vatican Gift Show, was released

earlier this year. They were expected to play dates with Kiss, but singer Scott

Weiland's drug problems forced them to cancel the Kiss dates and put all

touring plans on hold. Weiland has been in rehab; he has completed the program.

In a statement, the band thanked their fans for "your support and positive

wishes through the difficult time we've had."
