STONE TEMPLE PILOTS Take Stage Two Hours Late In Abbotsford, Cancel Tonight's Concert

September 18, 2012

According to, STONE TEMPLE PILOTS took to the stage two hours after the opening band last night (Monday, September 18) in Abbotsford, British Columbia , Canada.

CRASH KINGS opened the concert, playing for just under an hour to an estimated 3,000 fans who waited for much anticipation for the main act.

By the time 10:30 rolled around, STONE TEMPLE PILOTS still hadn't kicked off their show, and many people had reportedly already left the building. The remaining fans started getting restless and the arena erupted many times with booing.

Just past 11 p.m. STONE TEMPLE PILOTS finally came on stage, greeted by boos. Lead singer Scott Weiland offered a brief apology, but otherwise offered no explanation for the band's tardiness.

According to an unconfirmed report on, Weiland and STONE TEMPLE PILOTS guitarist Dean DeLeo were spotted playing paintball at Richmond Indoor Paintball yesterday afternoon.

STONE TEMPLE PILOTS' show scheduled for tonight (September 18) in Lethbridge, Alberta, Canada has been canceled.

**UPDATE**: According to a statement posted on STONE TEMPLE PILOTS' Facebook page, tonight's concert at the Emax Centre in Lethbridge, Alberta, Canada was called off because Weiland has been put on 48 hours complete vocal rest due to strained vocal cords. The cancelation of the Lethbridge show "will allow STP to finish the remaining dates of their summer 2012 tour," the statement adds.

The band's next scheduled concert is September 22 in Irvine, California.
