Stone Temple Pilots and Bush have canceled their upcoming co-headlining US tour, which was set to kick off on September 30th and run through October 16th. Bush cited “unfortunate and unavoidable COVID-related circumstances” as the reason for the cancellation; however, STP are still moving forward with their own headlining shows later in the fall. In separate statements from each band, it was made clear that it was Bush’s decision to cancel the tour.
Bush’s full statement reads: “Due to unfortunate and unavoidable COVID-related circumstances, we will be unable to move forward with our planned Fall tour dates — including our festival appearances and our tour with Stone Temple Pilots. We cannot stress enough how heartbreaking it is to not be able to go out and play after all of this time, and after all of our attempted starts and ensuing stops over the past year and a half. We wish to extend our deepest apologies as this is the last thing we would want for all our great fans as well as our good friends in Stone Temple Pilots.”
Stone Temple Pilots solo tour dates are still a go; their statement read: “STP friends and family, unfortunately Bush has had to cancel their upcoming tour with us that was to start at the end of this month. … We are of course saddened by this news, but it’s a sign of the times right now. That said, our headline dates starting on October 17th are still on! The only headline date that is being canceled is Oct 9th in Chattanooga, as that was during the Bush run and can no longer fit with the schedule. We’d love to see you all out there for the below dates, and we’re so very much looking forward to coming back to all canceled markets as soon as we can.”
