Stone Temple Pilots on Friday canceled their upcoming North American acoustic tour due to vocalist Jeff Gutt’s impending surgery to repair a “severely herniated disc.” The 15-date run was set to kick off Feb. 5 in Vancouver, B.C. with a stop in San Francisco at the Herbst Theatre on Feb. 12. The band’s all-acoustic trek was plotted to coincide with the release of its forthcoming acoustic album, Perdida, our on Feb. 7.
In a statement, the band said that doctors advised immediate surgery for Gutt, along with several weeks of recovery and physical therapy. The band said that Gutt is expected to make a full recovery and hopes to reschedule the acoustic tour for later in the year, but for now are choosing to cancel the tour outright.
Stone Temple Pilots will go forward as planned with their Australian tour with Live and Bush in April, as well as their recently announced slot playing on Nickelback’s All the Right Reasons anniversary tour. That tour will make a stop in the Bay Area on Oct. 3 at Shoreline Amphitheatre.
