stp1 STP Halt Tour After Scott Weilands RantLooks like STP are taking break from their tour after the frontman’s insane ramblings…good thing they hit up Minnesota before all this went down

Stone Temple Pilots announced on Tuesday, September 21 that they are postponing 12 reunion tour dates, according to the band’s official website.

Although STP did not specify a reason for the break, the announcement came two days after frontman [lastfm]Scott Weiland[/lastfm] made a slurred, rambling speech onstage at a concert in Houston, Texas. The band took the stage an hour after openers Black Rebel Motorcycle Club finished.

The band plans to take what they call a “short break” and jump back into their normal touring schedule in October. As of now, the next tour date is set for October 8 in Tampa, Florida.

Taking the stage at the Houston event, Scott Weiland said: “The 8th of December will be the time when I stopped doing dope.”

Then he went on to say: “No, no, no, no. I started drinking again. My brother died, I got divorced to my wife, and my whole world basically spun around. So you know what? I’m going to take care of myself because that’s what I need to take care of. Instead of just having a few shows, I want to have a whole hell of a lot of shows.”
