STP shows it’s “alive” and well in new concert

Stone Temple Pilots is one of the most famous bands of the 90’s rock world.  The San Diego, California based band saw its share of highs in the release of its first two albums, with numerous singles hitting radio stations nationwide.  It’s also seen its lows as a result of frontman Scott Weiland’s personal and legal issues.  But now, with the release of its brand new live recording, “Alive in The Windy City”, it would seem that Stone Temple Pilots is making its way back to the top of the rock world.

“Alive in the Windy City” documents the band’s 2010 show at Chicago’s historic Riviera Theatre.  The band put on a high adrenaline show with hits from across its catalogue, including:  ‘Creep’, ‘Dead and Bloated’, ‘and the band’s biggest hit, ‘Vasoline.’  The way the band rockets through its set, one wouldn’t even think the band’s members had been apart that long.  It’s amazing the energy coming from the band, as fast as it blazed through its set.  All four of the band’s members–Scott Weiland (vocals), Dean DeLeo (guitar), Robert DeLeo (bass) and Eric Kretz (drums)—-hit their marks from the opening strains of ‘Vasoline’ to the fading notes of ‘Trippin’ on a Hole in a Paper Heart.’

The audience in attendance felt the energy shared by the band, and gave it right back to the band.  The audience sang every word to every song without fail throughout the show.  And so will anyone that picks up the dvd or blu-ray release of this show.  It’s a solid performance from start to finish.  And there’s no denying that for fans who grew up with STP, “Alive in The Windy City” is like a time machine that will take them back to another time.

Whether or not fans pick up “Alive in The Windy City”, they’ll also get the chance to see the band live this Summer.  STP will be touring in support of the new release, with dates across North America, starting in Kingston, Ontario, Canada on August 19th.  Fans can get a full listing of the band’s tour dates online at http://www.stonetemplepilots.com, on Facebook at http://www.facebook.com/stpband, on Myspace at http://www.myspace.com/stonetemplepilots, and on its official Youtube channel at http://www.youtube.com/officialstp.
