Stone Temple Pilots Bring The Rock To Boulder

At the time tickets went on sale for Stone Temple Pilots’ latest tour, it was unclear initially how many folks were going to be interested in seeing the band with their new vocalist Jeff Gutt. What quickly became apparent, as shows started selling about across the country including their stop in Colorado last Thursday night, is there is still a whole lotta love for this band and these songs.

Admittedly, when the band makes their entrance and the first strains of Wicked Garden come through the p.a., it’s hard to not get a tingle in your nethers. And the tingles just did not stop. Running through a tight 90+ minute set, the band gave the crowd everything they came for and more.

Running through fan favorites, like Vaseline and a crowd-vocal led Plush, through deep cuts, like Coma and the sublime Atlanta, as well as throwing in new songs, that sounded every bit at home in the set, like Roll Me Under and Meadow.

It’s been over 25 years since the release of the band’s debut album and it becomes pretty clear pretty quickly, that Jeff Gutt can sing the shit out of the tunes and onstage, he has the charisma and swagger to hopefully front STP for decades to come.
