Now this is big: Stone Temple Pilots, Bush and Live are teaming up to offer Australian punters a fat slice of '90s nostalgia with a co-headline tour around the country next year.
The bands are coming together as part of the Under The Southern Stars touring festival, which this year boasted Hoodoo Gurus, You Am I, Eskimo Joe and British India, and are set to traverse their way around the country next April, hitting up a number of regional hot spots along the way.
It's a pretty big tour for a great number of reasons, particularly if you're a Stone Temple Pilots fan. The classic Californian alt-rock unit have experienced both the loss of original frontman Scott Weiland in 2015 and Linkin Park frontman Chester Bennington, who stepped in to replace Weiland, in 2017. The band have admirably solidered on through these ordeals, bringing out new singer Jeff Gutt for his first ever Australian tour next year. Expect Dean Deleo's guitar wizardry to be at the forefront of these shows - he's a seriously underrated player.
You're also probably very familiar with the hits from Bush and Live, who both nabbed huge singles in the '90s with the likes of 'Lightning Crashes' and 'Glycerine.' The three '90s legends are also set to be joined on the road by local rock OGs Rose Tattoo and Melbourne rockers Electric Mary, rounding out a huge bill of talent to kick off the year in style.
Suss out all the dates for next year's Under The Southern Stars festival. Tickets go on sale 9am on Monday September 9.
