I can't wait.... this is going to be an awesome show and I'm so happy they are coming to Musikfest rather than having to go all the way to Philly or Camden.
STP rocks!

Rock and roll comes with drugs attached... it's just nice to see someone able to fight through their addiction.

Just go away and enjoy your easy listening,'crap rock', and we'll enjoy music that takes talent to create.

Saw STP at Stabler back in 96 or 97. It was a good show. I may attend this show.

Seriously here folks. Musikfest is phucking retarded for bringing in this band. I used to love STP but I stopped following them after so many drug problems. This is the 25th anniversary of Musikfest. Why not bring in some worthy bands instead of crap like this? They won't sell 2,000 tickets for this show. They will be giving them away. Watch.

So many prominent rock and roll bands have created scores of music through their addictions. Aerosmith, Led Zeppelin, The Doors, Janis Joplin, and Jimi Hendrix to name but a few.

While I'm not condoning this behavior, musicians often get caught up in substance abuse because they wish to continue the momentary high of performing. STP is no exception, and I congratulate Weiland for continuing to move through his rehabilitation.

STP's first three albums are some of the most important rock albums released in the early to mid 90's, and I am very happy that they will be returning to the stage together.

I too saw them at Stabler in the 90's and it was one of the tightest performances I've ever seen by a rock band. I guarantee that this show will NOT have any tickets left over to "give away."

So sad that you chose to abandon them during their tough times. Are you also a football fan that has jumped on and off the wagons of the various teams (Dallas, Miami) once they started to deteriorate? A true fan stays loyal no matter what.

Ok I may have said that wrong. I do listen to their music. It's very good. But, I just no longer pay to see them play is all I meant to say. Sometimes I ramble on for no reason. Sorry about that.

"You no longer pay to see them play?"

That's surprising, since they have been broken up since 2003. If you enjoy their music, this is the time to go see them... who knows how long this will last.

You FAIL at logic, sir.

I stopped paying to see them in 1999. That's what I meant. It's not failure of logic on my part. It's more like not proof reading what I wrote. Again, sorry about that.

Perhaps you should read the instruction manual for the Interweb.
