Stone Temple Pilots Announce Tour, Plans For New Album; Plus Video & Photo Gallery

By |

The reunited Stone Temple Pilots announced the details of their sixty-five city summer tour yesterday at a press conference in Los Angeles. The tour, which will kick off May 17th in Columbus, Ohio, will roll on until November. If things go smoothly, guitarist Dean DeLeo predicted the band would start work on a new album, their first since 2001's Shangri-La Dee Da. "The story's not finished," Scott Weiland said. "There's more to be revealed and more to be told." The band also revealed they would make their return to late night TV with an appearance on the Jimmy Kimmel Show on May 1st.

Following the press conference, the band played a small, private half-hour show in the Hollywood Hills. It was the STP's first live performance together in nearly six years. "Plush," "Interstate Love Song" and "Vasoline," were among the songs on the hits-filled setlist. A fan at the show mananged to get some crude-looking (but good-sounding) cell phone video of "Big Empty," which you can watch after the jump.
