PROMOTIONAL POSTER RELEASED FOR SCOTT WEILAND’S THE PURPLE AT THE CORE TOUR TOUR
A new promotional poster has been announced for (possibly former) Stone Temple Pilots frontman Scott Weiland’s The Purple At The Core Tour, which says ‘featuring the hits from the classic albums Core and Purple.’ Weiland has also announced a show for March 6, 2013 at The Emporium in Patchouge, New York. The ticket page for that show says ‘Performing STP’s Core and Purple.’ The promotional material has really contradicted itself, with some outlets saying he’ll play Core and Purple front to back and others just saying he’ll perform the hits. I don’t think this bodes well for Stone Temple Pilots and adds validity to the rumors that Weiland has been fired, or that the band has split. Since relaunching his solo career in 2008 Weiland has sparingly performed STP radio hits at his solo shows, leaving those for STP shows.
