Stone Temple Pilots to hit New England in August

, Staff

Stone Temple Pilots have revealed plans to return to the road at the end of the summer. The California-based rockers will make two stops in New England, including the MGM Grand Theater at Foxwoods Casino in Mashantucket, Connecticut on Saturday, August 25. Tickets for the show, which range in price from $45 to $65, are available through Ticketmaster.

Following the show in Connecticut, Stone Temple Pilots (STP) will perform at the Meadowbrook U.S. Cellular Pavilion in Gilford, New Hampshire on Friday, August 31. Tickets for the show, which range in price from $29.50 to $67.50, are now on sale through the venue’s box office and website.

Though STP has no new album to support, the band will be promoting their first live concert DVD, “Alive In The Windy City”. Scheduled to hit stores tomorrow, the film captures the band’s soldout show at the Riviera Theatre in Chicago in March 2010. Along with the 18-song performance, “Alive In The Windy City” includes interviews with each of the band members.

This year also marks the twentieth anniversary of the band’s debut album, Core. Powered by hit singles “Creep”, “Plush” and “Wicked Garden”, the album went eight times platinum. Though no official announcement has been made, the band is expected to perform the album in its entirety at select shows on the upcoming tour.

In 2010, STP released their sixth studio album. The self-titled release, which debuted at #2 on the Billboard 200, served as the band’s first offering of new material since reuniting in 2008 after a five-year hiatus. It also marked the band’s first album without producer Brendan O’Brien at the helm, after guitarist Dean DeLeo and bassist Robert DeLeo chose to produce it.
