Reunited Stone Temple Pilots, Weiland make it to Kent for hit-filled show

The usual speculation about what could go wrong for Stone Temple Pilots was greatly amplified after the reunited band postponed several tour dates in September following bizarre behavior from embattled front man Scott Weiland. Surprise!

But Weiland made it to Kent’s Showare Center Wednesday night, along with drummer Eric Kretz and the brothers DeLeo, Dean and Robert on guitar and bass respectively. Weiland looked pretty dapper, in fact, in tailored coat and tie. He didn’t ramble incoherently or otherwise seem under the influence, reserving most of his minimal banter for calling out the new cuts from the self-titled album (starting with that one that blatantly rips of Nirvana.) And the guy didn’t appear to be lip-syncing, as alleged after another tour mishap this year. I was looking and listening for it, and a pitchy delivery on “Still Remains” suggested authenticity.

Nope, there were no train wrecks in Kent as STP delivered grunge era hits to a sparse but enthusiastic crowd. Click the more button for a set lists and a few more shots I snapped during the band’s set.

Stone Temple Pilots dates postponed (but not the one in Kent)

The good news for local Stone Temple Pilots fans is that the band’s Nov. 3 stop in Kent is still on the tour schedule. Tickets go on sale at 10 a.m. Friday, as a matter of fact (info here.) The bad news is this report on front man Scott Weiland’s latest meltdown from Rolling Stone. Folks at the ShoWare Center must be thrilled at the timing.


Stone Temple Pilots are headed to Kent

Stone Temple Pilots are headed to Kent. The Showare Center just announced a Nov. 3 date with the resurgent alt-rock band, best known “Sex Type Thing,” “Creep” and other hits (not to mention front man Scott Weiland’s crazy antics – this incident, for example.)

The show will kick off at 7:30 p.m. that day. Tickets are $25 to $49.50 and will go on sale at 10 a.m. on Sept. 24. Find more info here.
