Stone Temple Pilots continue their steady climb back into the land of active
bands with a 29-date spring tour that will unofficially kick off this Saturday
(March 15) when they play alongside Aerosmith at this year's MTV Spring Break
The group played a string of 29 shows this winter following
singer Scott Weiland's successful stint in court-ordered rehab. It was a
glitch-free tour until Weiland disappeared and a few shows had to be canceled.
Now STP plans to hit the road again following Weiland's second,
self-imposed, stretch in a rehab facility in January. Manager Steve Stewart
told ATN the band will do six weeks of touring, take a week off and then
possibly hit the road again for six more weeks.
Stewart also said that the
unnamed side project initiated by the other three members of STP (Dean DeLeo,
Eric Kretz and Robert DeLeo) along with Ten Inch Men singer Dave Coutts when
Weiland was in rehab, is still being worked on and is slated to be mixed within
a month, although no release date has been set.
