Stone Temple Pilots announce first US tour with new singer

The Stone Temple Pilots have announced dates for their first US tour with new singer Jeff Gutt.

A veteran of the Detroit music scene, Gutt was chosen during the band’s open audition call for a vocalist after the 2015 departure of Chester Bennington, who returned to Linkin Park before his passing a few months ago.

Gutt made his live debut with the group during an exclusive November 14 show at The Troubadour in West Hollywood, CA, where the band also delivered the first performance of their new single, “Meadow.”

The spring 2018 trek will begin in Santa Clarita, CA on Mar 2, with shows wrapping up in Billings, MT on March 17.

Tickets will go on sale Friday, December 8 at 10 a.m. local time.

The run will be followed with appearances at three festivals, including Jacksonville, FL's Welcome To Rockville, Fort Lauderdale, FL's Fort Rock, and Columbus, OH's Rock On The Range.

"We are thrilled to see all of you,” says guitarist Dean DeLeo, “and share in the music that belongs to all of us."

Gutt and the band will release a new album in the spring.

The third singer in Stone Temple Pilots’ recording history, Gutt acknowledges the band’s legendary original frontman Scott Weiland, who passed away in 2015 at the age of 48 from an accidental overdose while on tour.

“No one will ever fill Scott’s shoes and I’m not trying to - he’s a legend,” says Gutt. “But these songs deserve to be performed and people want to hear them. I’m just honored that the guys chose me to help them continue to build this band’s legacy.”
