Stone Temple Pilots and Rival Sons will co-headline a North American tour this fall. The 12-city tour will kick off in Baltimore on September 13th, with stops in Philadelphia, New York City, New Orleans and more, before wrapping up in Stone Temple Pilots’ hometown of San Diego on October 9th.

STP guitarist Dean DeLeo said, “We are thrilled about this tour and grateful to share these upcoming shows with Rival Sons. A great band! They don’t make them like this anymore. Looking forward to seeing all of you!”

Rival Sons guitarist Scott Holiday added, “We’re delighted to share the stage with the DeLeo brothers and STP! Not to mention performing together in some really great venues. These guys wrote some of the soundtrack to my childhood . . . and it’ll be killer to watch and listen to ‘em hit these gems every night!”

Singer Jay Buchanan told us that opening for Black Sabbath on the latter band's farewell tour taught Rival Sons how to play for huge audiences: “They gave us an education, and they gave us the opportunity, and they said, 'Look, you guys are a theater band, you need to be an arena band, and this is how you do it.' It's a masterclass in how to become what you can be, and it afforded us the opportunity to grow and really look at an arena and go like, 'Yup, this is where we belong now.'”
