On Friday (January 24), Stone Temple Pilots have announced that they will be postponing the upcoming Perdida acoustic tour due to lead singer Jeff Gutt dealing with a severely herniated disc that requires surgery.
“We are sorry to announce that we must cancel the upcoming Perdida acoustic tour,” the band wrote on Instagram. Our brother Jeff has a severely herniated disc and doctors have advised immediate surgery which will require weeks of recovery time and physical therapy.”
Despite the unfortunate news, the band has already reassured fans that it fully plans on rescheduling the canceled tour dates and, in the meantime, concertgoers can get their money back. “We hope to reschedule the Perdida tour later this year,” STP wrote. “Everyone who purchased tickets for the Perdida tour will get full refunds for their tickets at point of purchase.”
The band also noted that it will continue on its Australian tour with Live and Bush as well as its summer tour with Nickelback. “Thank you all for your understanding. We love you all and hope to see you on the road again soon,” Stone Temple Pilots ended the message.
The 16-date tour was set to begin February 5 and wrap up March 1 in support of the band's acoustic album, Perdida, out February 7. This is Stone Temple Pilots’ second album with Gutt, who was hired in 2018 to succeed Scott Weiland and Chester Bennington.
Stone Temple Pilots shared the official music video for its latest song off the project, “Fare Thee Well,” on January 20.
