Bassist Robert DeLeo told The Pulse of Radio that he wasn't nervous about the band making its comeback in front of such a huge audience. "No, I just feel like there's a lot of myself feeling comfortable with what I do onstage and, you know, sometimes you get in the way of yourself," he said. "And I think we all have those issues once in a while, and I think just keeping an open attitude and just trying to have a positive attitude and enjoy this would be great."

Joining STONE TEMPLE PILOTS on Saturday were FINGER ELEVEN, SHINEDOWN, KILLSWITCH ENGAGE, SERJ TANKIAN, STAIND, DISTURBED, ASHES DIVIDE, AIRBOURNE, RED, 10 YEARS, THEORY OF A DEADMAN and FILTER.

Sunday's (May 18) lineup includes FIVE FINGER DEATH PUNCH, ALTER BRIDGE, FLYLEAF, SEETHER, PAPA ROACH, 3 DOORS DOWN, SAVING ABEL, REV THEORY, BLACK TIDE, BOBAFLEX, DROWNING POOL and SEVENDUST, along with headliner KID ROCK.
