STONE TEMPLE PILOTS have announced that they have "re-routed" a portion of their previously announced U.S. tour dates. All of the band's concerts that were scheduled to take place between tonight (Tuesday, September 21) and October 8 in Tampa, Florida have been canceled, with some of the dates having been rescheduled for late October.

While no official reason has been offered as to why the band is postponing several of its dates, a review by Houston Press indicated that STONE TEMPLE PILOTS frontman Scott Weiland "seemed off mentally, a little too meandering and talkative" at the band's Sunday night performance in Woodlands, Texas (see video below). STP also reportedly took the stage an hour later than scheduled.
STONE TEMPLE PILOTS' new self-titled album, sold 62,000 copies in the United States in its first week of release to debut at No. 2 on The Billboard 200 chart.
"Stone Temple Pilots" marks the sixth top 10 for the band — its entire output of studio albums. Only its greatest hits package "Thank You" missed the top 10 (No. 26 in 2003).
The group's self-titled sixth album is its first all-new effort since 2001's "Shangri-La-Dee-Da".
STONE TEMPLE PILOTS reunited in 2008 after a six-year layoff.
