Stone Temple Pilots Celebrates Purple 30th Anniversary Performing The Album In Full During Summer Tour

Today marks the 30th anniversary of Purple, Stone Temple Pilots’ chart-topping, multi-platinum second album. In honor of the milestone, the band will perform the entire album each night starting August 16 on their upcoming summer tour.

Stone Temple Pilots – Dean DeLeo, Robert DeLeo, Eric Kretz, and Jeff Gutt – will kick off the tour on June 29 in Traverse City, Michigan. Starting on August 16, the band will join forces with +LIVE+ to co-headline the Jubilee Tour. This 19-city run begins in Concord, California, and wraps up on September 15 in Indianapolis, Indiana. Tickets are on sale now HERE.

Released on June 7, 1994, Purple was the highly anticipated follow-up to Stone Temple Pilots’ 1992 debut, Core, which sold over eight million copies and earned a GRAMMY® Award. Scott Weiland, Dean DeLeo, Robert DeLeo, and Eric Kretz recorded most of Purple in Atlanta with producer Brendan O’Brien.

The album debuted at No. 1 on the Mainstream Rock Tracks chart and quickly became a fan favorite, selling over six million copies. Purple features some of the group’s most beloved tracks, including “Interstate Love Song” and “Vasoline,” which topped the Mainstream Rock Tracks chart. It also includes “Big Empty,” a song that first appeared on the film soundtrack for The Crow. It was a massive Top 10 hit on mainstream and modern rock charts and won the MTV Movie Award for Best Song in a Movie.
