KRock’s Return of the Rock with STP


PNC Bank Arts center was filled to capacity tonight for KRock’s SOLD OUT Return of the Rock with Stone Temple Pilots. Despite the tornado watch and thunderstorms, it actually turned out to be a nice night!

The opening bands were Ashes Divide and Filter. Both sounded good, but of course we were all waiting to see the main attraction… and wait we did…

and wait…

and after waiting over an hour, Stone Temple Pilots finally took the stage around 10:30PM.

I had a few drinks beforehand and don’t remember the exact order, but here’s most of tonight’s setlist:

-Big Empty
-Wicked Garden
-Big Bang Baby (one of my faves!!)
-Lady Picture Show
-Lounge Fly (oh the Purple memories!)
-Sour Girl
-PLUSH!! (the “Stairway to Heaven” of the 90’s)
-Interstate Love Song
-Down (GREAT tune off of No. 4… does anyone own that album but me?)
-Sex Type Thing (this one didn’t go so well but we forgive them)
-Trippin’ on a Hole in a Paper Heart

and the encore:

-Dead and Bloated!! (it began with an audience sing-a-long on the intro then kicked into high gear)

Listen, I am one of the biggest STP fans you’ll ever meet, and being able to see them tonight was such a nostalgic trip! Thanks to all of the KRock listeners who came out to support them, it wouldn’t have been the same without you!

    I also made it to last night’s show at the PNC arts ctr and found that there were chinks in the STP armor… First off, the wait drained some of the crowd’s enthusiasm, considering that we were standing for almost an hour and a half waiting for them to take the stage. When they finally did, the set list that they put out was terrific. Almost half the show was the “Core” album, which was their best… However, Scott Weiland wandered in and out of being tuneful and messed up a few times in losing his lines,etc.. This show was not as good as the last time I saw them, but their songs are so good that it was hard not to be entertained. I don’t know how much longer this tour can go with the way WEiland looks and sounds though. He’ll be back in rehab again soon if what I saw last night continues…

    Worst concert ever! Weiland was so wasted, the rest of the band had to prop him up between songs when he finally made it to the stage! Weiland sounded like absolute crap and seemed to have serious problems just keeping up with the band. An absolute waste of time and money!

    The truth is that this was an aweful show. She must have been as wasted as Weiland to give such a good review. Weiland was off key and could barely stand up. He appologized on stage to his band mates for being so wasted.

    Did they put the words up on the big screen for the “Dead and Bloated” sing-along so that all the really drunk people (most of them) who couldnt remember the words at that point could join in?
