    Just got tickets to Detroit.  Looking forward to it!
  • I last saw them when they reunited in 2008. They played Roy Wilkins which holds about 5k, and tickets were still available at showtime. He saw a Star Tribune reporter/banner/something and went on a short rant about the paper, since it had written about all of the issues with the tour so far, him coming on stage late, refusing to come off the bus, etc. He even had the press passes rescinded before the show.

    Fun fact: Also my first time seeing a $40 t-shirt.

    I've listened to the core one.  My favourite part was the unplugged.  That should almost get it's own standalone release.  Maybe on vinyl for RSD or something.

    I agree. I think there are bootlegs of it out now.

    I suppose the hard part is figuring out which bootleg is sourced from the boxset.  A friend of mine bought an unplugged bootleg vinyl and it was sourced from a vhs tape.  Even worse it had 2 second gaps between tracks, which means it was most likely sourced from an mp3 of the vhs.    An official version would be sweet.

    btw I just heard the acoustic version of interstate love song from the purple boxset.  OMFG.  It's so good!

    Nice!! I gotta get this thing open 
  • The live show from the Purple set is great, haven't checked out the demos yet but excited for the acoustic ILS. I just did the digital for the extras on this one since I have the MOV pressing it's a really good press. Unplugged and the demos on Core are worth picking the deluxe up for there too..

    Feeling Gutted that they had to cancel the acoustic tour because Jeff Gutt has a herniated disc. Also not encouraged that they're not trying to reschedule the dates and just refunding the tickets. This tour was a good opportunity to hear some of their deeper tracks. Hopefully they can reschedule after the Nickelback tour, which I'm sure will have the same greatest hits setlist.

    I hope they reschedule it too, would love to see them in that type of show. Hope it's a full recovery for Jeff. The 2 tracks off the new disc I've been listening to a bit, looking forward to the album.

     new album Perdida out today. Very different approach for them. Very....mellow. I knew they were doing somewhat of an acoustic/laid back feel for this one, but there's freaking flute in at least 2 songs. one of them is a flute SOLO. 

    I imagine putting this on the turntable, pouring a deep glass of red, sparking one up, and sinking into my couch.

    After two listens, there's nothing on this album that sounds like Stone Temple Pilots. It's an odd feeling. Jeff Gutt has no range. All the tracks seem to be the same tempo. Very bizarre record.

    Doesn't sound like Jeff Gutt on the song with the flute solo (Years)...is that Rob DeLeo on vocals? I bought digital so I don't have the liner notes.

    you would be correct: Rob on vox.

    I wonder if economically speaking, the Perdida concert in the PPV setting would be beneficial to the band. I'd love it if they did one. Grabbed both the shows posted, great quality on the 2011 but if you're expecting a performance from Scott like the live show included in the Purple set you'll be disappointed. It was a solid reunion era performance for him though. Haven't listened to the 2019 yet

    Stream was well worth the $10 - I'd recommend it if you're on  the fence
