Stone Temple Pilots Cancel North American Tour Due to Injury
Stone Temple Pilots have just hit a serious bump in the road, as the band have been forced to cancel their entire winter North American tour.

This morning, STP announced singer Jeff Gutt has suffered a severely herniated disc, with doctors advising immediate surgery, along with several weeks of recovery time and physical therapy.

As a result, all the dates on the band's "The Perdida Tour" — in support of their upcoming acoustic album Perdida — have been axed. This includes Canadian concerts in Vancouver on February 5 and Toronto on February 27.

Ticket holders can seek refunds at point of purchase, and you can see all the cancelled dates below.

A press release states, "Gutt is expected to make a full recovery, and the band hopes to reschedule the acoustic tour later this year."

A full statement from the band reads:

We are sorry to announce that we must cancel the upcoming Perdida acoustic tour. Our brother Jeff has a severely herniated disc and doctors have advised immediate surgery which will require weeks of recovery time and physical therapy. Thankfully, Jeff is expected to make a full recovery and we will continue with our Australian tour with Live and Bush in April, the summer tour with Nickelback, and we hope to reschedule the Perdida tour later this year. Everyone who purchased tickets for the Perdida tour will get full refunds for their tickets at point of purchase. Thank you all for your understanding. We love you all and hope to see you on the road again soon.

Stone Temple Pilots will deliver Perdida on February 7 through Rhino/Warner. As or press time, they are also expected to still head out on their recently announced tour with Nickelback later this year, as well as on their Australian trek with Live and Bush starting in April.
