Planning a 'Short Break', Stone Temple Pilots Reschedule More U.S. Shows

September 23, 2010 (6:24 am) GMT
Although they haven't given reason for the short hiatus, the rockers have announced that they have rescheduled 12 U.S. tour dates and will return in mid October.

Rockers have rescheduled 12 U.S. tour dates so the band can take "a short break". No reason has been given for the hiatus, but the band, led by enigmatic frontman Scott Weiland, will resume the trek towards the middle of October.

The recently reunited band postponed a date in El Paso, Texas on Tuesday night, September 12 and announced they'd be scrapping two other upcoming state shows. Now they've added another nine concerts to the list. The news comes days after the band took the stage in Houston, Texas on Sunday, September 19 an hour late, and Weiland rambled on through the show about his drug addiction and marriage breakdown.

The singer, who has struggled with substance abuse over the last few years and battled heroin addiction before finally getting sober, told fans at the Cynthia Woods Mitchell Pavilion how he had been affected by his past problems. Fans and critics noted he seemed "disoriented" and his remarks from the stage were "odd and confusing".
