STONE TEMPLE PILOTS Frontman Opens Texas Show With Two-Minute Rant; Video Available

September 20, 2010

According to Craig Hlavaty of, STONE TEMPLE PILOTS was more than an hour late taking the stage last night (Sunday, September 19) at the Cynthia Woods Mitchell Pavilion in in Woodlands, Texas.

Opening the show with a two-minute rant (see video below),singer Scott Weiland "seemed off mentally, a little too meandering and talkative, bringing up his own past drug and alcohol abuse," Hlavaty wrote in his review of the concert. "At one point he did claim that he traded the hard stuff for boozing."

Hlavaty added in a separate post, "Weiland's banter in between songs was odd and confusing. He touched on using inner-ear monitors, the band's first gigs, his own past drug use, what grunge means to him and why bands don't destroy gear anymore."

STONE TEMPLE PILOTS' setlist was as follows:

01. Crackerman
02. Wicked Garden
03. Heaven & Hotrods
04. Between the Lines
05. Hickory Dichotomy
06. Big Empty
07. Silvergun Superman
08. Plush
09. Interstate Love Song
10. Huckleberry Crumble
11. Down
12. Sex Type Thing


13. Trippin' On a Hole In a Paper Heart
