Stone Temple Pilots coming to Abbotsford in September

The group will bring its Greatest Hits Tour to the Abbotsford Entertainment and Sports Centre on Sept. 17.

Stone Temple Pilots will be rocking the Abbotsford Entertainment & Sports Centre as they bring their Greatest Hits Tour to the venue on Sept. 17 at 8 p.m.

Up and coming American rock band, Crash Kings will open for Stone Temple Pilots.

Since the moment they appeared on the scene in the early 1990s, Stone Temple Pilots dominated the decade from start to finish, racking up 15 singles on the Billboard Top Ten, winning a Best Hard Rock Performance Grammy Award in 1994 for Plush, and having five albums sell more than 35 million copies worldwide.

Stone Temple Pilots have sustained commercial success, earning greater critical acclaim with each release and building a body of work that remains popular.

The band quietly went their separate ways after the turn-of the millennium release of Shangri-La Dee Da.

However, in 2008 Stone Temple Pilots officially revealed that the band would be reuniting and launching a massive 2008 concert. This tour marked the first national tour for Stone Temple Pilots in almost eight years. The band enjoyed the experience of being back together and performing so much that they decided to go back to the studio.

The group recently released the Alive in the Windy City DVD, filmed at the Riviera Theatre in Chicago. The DVD includes classic hits such as, Plush, Vasoline, Creep and many more.

Tickets for the Abbotsford show can be purchased online at www.abbotsfordcentre.ca by telephone at 1-866-977- AESC (2372) or in person at the AESC box office. They can also be purchased at ticket outlets located at the Abbotsford or Matsqui recreation centres and  Whatcom Wine & Spirits, beginning July 6 at 10 a.m.
