In the time between its 1993 debut, Core, and its 2001 album, Shangri-La Dee Da, Stone Temple Pilots kept radio stations well-fed with its gritty, grunge-flavored arena rock heard in instant classics such as “Interstate Love Song,” “Plush,” and “Wicked Garden.” Fans then endured Stone Temple Pilots’ near-decade-long absence before the band grabbed its guitars, re-Sharpied its tattoos, and reunited for its sixth, self-titled album in 2010. The record shot to No. 2 on the Billboard 200 behind infectious singles such as “Between the Lines,” whose unabashed chorus declares, “You were always my favorite drug / Even when we used to do drugs.” When the new collection of songs was released, Spin's William Goodman raved, “The new album is classic STP. Its 12 tracks have the band’s signature blend of tuneful melodies and rock guitar crunch, psychedelic solos and impressive crooning courtesy of Scott Weiland.”
Weiland, Eric Kretz, and Robert and Dean DeLeo have continued their momentum in their live shows, working the crowd with a mix of beloved hits and newer songs. Before Stone Temple Pilots command the stage, the Deftones plunge into the jagged riffs of such hits as “You’ve Seen the Butcher” and “Change (In the House of Flies).” Bush drives the beat forward with grunge-tinged classics such as “Comedown” and new efforts such as “The Sound of Winter.” View the full lineup of more than 12 bands here.
Due to security restrictions, G-Passes must be printed out and presented in person at the event. They cannot be redeemed through Groupon's mobile app.
