ROCKFORD (OTW) -- Illinois’ largest street festival, On the Waterfront, announced today that the American rock group, Stone Temple Pilots, or STP, will close out the 28th annual festival on the Great Lawn Stage Sunday, September 4th.
“STP was one of the highest requested rock bands from the performer surveys we conducted earlier this year, and we are very happy that everything worked out for us to bring them to Rockford, especially with lead singer Scott Weiland back in the group,” said Nina Jacobson, OTW Sales and Marketing Manager.
STP who formed in 1992, dissolved in 2003, and reunited in 2008, has made its mark on rock music every step of the way. Since the moment they appeared on the scene in the early 90s, Stone Temple Pilots dominated the decade from start to finish, racking up 15 singles on the Billboard Top Ten, winning a "Best Hard Rock Performance" a Grammy Award for "Plush," and having their six albums sell more than 35 million copies worldwide. With the return of lead vocalist Scott Weiland, Stone Temple Pilots is back together and making a stop in Rockford!
STP combined with the Rock Allegiance Tour on Thursday will promise to deliver one rockin’ Waterfront weekend!
