Stone Temple Pilots and Rival Sons announce co-headlining US tour

Rival Sons & Stone Temple Pilots

Grunge legends Stone Temple Pilots and rising stars Rival Sons have announced an 11-date co-headline tour of The US. The jaunt kicks off on September 13 in Baltimore, MD, and climaxes on October 9 in San Diego, CA. 

In addition, Rival Sons will be playing a show without Stone Temple Pilots in Detroit, MI, on September 27.

"We are thrilled about this tour and grateful to share these upcoming shows with Rival Sons," says STP guitarist Dean DeLeo. "A great band! They don't make them like this anymore. Looking forward to seeing all of you."

"We're delighted to share the stage with the DeLeo brothers and STP," adds Rival Sons guitarist Scott Holiday. "Not to mention performing together in some really great venues. These guys wrote some of the soundtrack to my childhood… and it'll be killer to watch and listen to 'em hit these gems every night."

Each band will play a full set at the shows, and tickets go on sale via LiveNation today at 12 noon local time.

Next month, Stone Temple Pilots embark on a 12-date European tour that includes a show at Download Festival on June 12. Last month Rival Sons launched a video for Too Bad, the latest track to be taken from the band's recent Feral Roots album.
