The Stone Temple Pilots are jumping on the live stream train to deliver an iconic performance of their 1994 album Purple.
High expectations met the group as they embarked on recording their second album more than 20 years ago. Hard work and creative ingenuity would cement their status has one of the preeminent alterna-rock jam bands of the decade. Who doesn’t love cranking “Interstate Love Song” up to 11 while driving down the highway?
Purple debuted #1 on the Billboard album chart on its way to selling more than six million copies.
The live stream event starts Friday October 16 at 5 PM PT. Tickets are $10.00. You can grab a pair on their website. STP is also offering album-centric swag, including a raspberry toned shirt with the iconic child riding on a Qilin dragon accompanied by a quintet of fairies.
It’s not the first album the band has performed in its entirety. Back in July STP performed their debut album Core from front to back in a pay-per-view livestream performance.
Core has since been certified 8X platinum and is the band’s best-selling record to date. The album features some of Stone Temple Pilots’ songs such as “Plush,” “Sex Type Thing,” and “Wicked Garden.”
In 2020, STP released their eighth studio and first all-acoustic album Perdida, the second album with lead vocalist Jeff Gutt.
