Stone Temple Pilots to tour, unveil first live DVD
Alt-rock heavyweights Stone Temple Pilots will spend the late summer touring the U.S., as well as promoting the impending release of "Alive in the Windy City," the band's first concert DVD.
The Scott Weiland-helmed group begins the stateside road trip with an Aug. 18 performance in Pontiac, MI, followed by another half-dozen East Coast shows. The 15-city North American run then moves West, beginning with a Sept. 4 concert in Chicago and extending through a Sept. 23 gig in Sacramento, CA. Four Canadian stops are also on the books.
Tickets for the six-week outing are on sale now.
Stone Temple Pilots will release "Alive in the Windy City" June 26 via Eagle Rock Entertainment. The high-definition collection, which was recorded in March 2010 at a sold-out show at Chicago's Riviera Theatre, marks the first time the group has authorized a live show for video release.
The 92-minute performance features 18 songs -- "Interstate Love Song," "Vasoline" and "Creep" among them -- and includes bonus footage of member interviews, according to a press release.
The rockers most recently unveiled 2010's eponymous album, which marks the band's sixth studio release. The 12-track effort peaked at No. 2 on The Billboard 200 and at the top of the magazine's Rock Albums and Hard Rock Albums charts.
The summer excursion comes 20 years after the release of the alt-rock outfit's multi-platinum debut, "Core," which includes the hit singles "Creep," "Plush" and "Wicked Garden."
