Stone Temple Pilots To Hit Road With Bush, The Cult For 'Revolution 3' Tour
Is there a hole in your heart? An empty place that you used to keep filled with daily doses of grunge-flavored, hard-hitting, wall-of-sound alternative rock? Well despair no longer, because three of the biggest bands of the mid-1990s' golden era of alt-rock are hitting the road together for a "tri-headlining" tour of North America this summer.
Stone Temple Pilots – reformed with their new lead singer Jeff Gutt following the tragic passing of both their co-founding lead singer Scott Weiland and more recent frontman Chester Bennington of Linkin Park – will be joined by British hard rock/grunge hitmakers Bush and The Cult for a 20-show sprint around the country.
The 2018 Revolution 3 Tour will see all three bands play full sets for each show date in a "revolving headline" format, where each group will take the headliner spot on alternating nights.
We are excited to be heading out on #TheRevolution3Tour with @STPBand + @officialcult this summer! Presales start tomorrow at 1pm local time.

"We look forward to celebrating glorious summer nights of responsible (and irresponsible) hedonism with all of you," said the Cult's Ian Astbury in the bands' joint statement announcing the tour. Bush's Gavin Rossdale also commented, "We are looking forward to see everybody in the summer. This is a great tour for rock fans," while Stone Temple Pilots' Robert DeLeo added, "We are thrilled to join our friends this summer to celebrate our music with all of you."
The Revolution 3 Tour will kick off in Nashville, Tenn. on July 18, and run for six weeks before wrapping up on Sept. 2 in Phoenix, Ariz. All three bands will appear together on April 3 for a tour launch party in L.A., and limited presale tickets for select shows will go on-sale at 10 a.m. local time on the same day. Tickets to the general public will go on-sale on April 6 at 10 a.m. local. Full show dates and ticket details can be found on the bands' websites.
