Stone Temple Pilots' 2012 Core 20th anniversary tour includes St. Paul show
Where were you on September 29, 1992? If the answer is something like "In line at Sam Goody picking up a copy of Stone Temple Pilots' debut album Core," then the following news will interest you. Dates for the STP's Core 20th anniversary just emerged, and they go right along with what the guys said was in store earlier this year.
In an interview with Rolling Stone, guitarist Dean DeLeo mentioned doing intimate shows in "really lovely theaters around the country" to commemorate the two-decade legacy of one of grunge's most popular albums. Frontman Scott Weiland said earlier this year that a lot of special things are in the works, including "a box set and then a tour, of course," So, how about those tour dates featuring the ever-volatile STP original lineup?
Stone Temple Pilots' last visit to the Twin Cities was back in August of 2010 at Roy Wilkins Auditorium in St. Paul. And this time they're coming to Myth on September 7. You can plan with confidence that Core classics like "Sex Type Thing," "Plush," "Creep," and "Dead and Bloated" are along for the ride this time.
