Confirming reports that have been floating around for a few weeks, today the first date on Stone Temple Pilots’ summer reunion tour was announced: They’ll play the Rock On The Range festival in Columbus, Ohio, this May. (Well, provided that frontman Scott Weiland gets out of rehab by that time.) STP will lead a lineup that’s evenly balanced between bands that have had an iron fist-like grip on rock radio since the earliest days of the “post-grunge” movement and acts that have somehow managed to slip into the Modern Rock charts over the past few years:
Staind and Filter. Does admission to this festival include a ride in a DeLorean that takes you back to 1999, too?
