STONE TEMPLE PILOTS Perform On 'Jimmy Kimmel Live!'; Video Available

The reunited STONE TEMPLE PILOTS performed on last night's (May 1) edition of ABC-TV's "Jimmy Kimmel Live!". Watch footage of their appearance below.

STONE TEMPLE PILOTS will tour for the first time since 2002 this spring and summer, beginning next month, with tentative plans to record a new album later this year. But since the group broke up under less than amicable circumstances six years ago, what's to stop that from happening again? Bassist Robert DeLeo told The Pulse of Radio he's not sure he has the answer. "I wish there was a recipe or an anecdote for that, but unfortunately, you know, there's four different people, and over the years, we've gone our separate ways," he said. "I don't think my life reflects Scott's [Weiland, vocals] life. We're different. You know, we're all in our 40s now, and to have that opportunity for this to come back around, I feel really, really fortunate. I'm really, really humbled by it."

STONE TEMPLE PILOTS' last album was 2001's "Shangri-La-Dee-Da".

The band will begin their tour at the Rock on the Range festival in Columbus, Ohio on May 17, with the trek winding down on August 31 Seattle's Bumbershoot Festival. Fans are encouraged to submit requests for the tour set list at the official STONE TEMPLE PILOTS web site.
