Stone Temple Pilots’ upcoming tour to promote their unplugged “Perdida” album has been canceled due to vocalist Jeff Gutt’s medical situation

Stone Temple Pilots were scheduled to set off on an unplugged tour beginning Feb. 5, but that tour has now been canceled so lead vocalist Jeff Gutt can deal with some medical problems.

“We are sorry to announce that we must cancel the upcoming Perdida acoustic tour,” the band said in a statement posted to social media today (Jan. 24). “Our brother Jeff has a severely herniated disc and doctors have advised immediate surgery which will require weeks of recovery time and physical therapy.”

They added that the medical issue shouldn’t impact the band’s upcoming tours, stating, “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.”

Stone Temple Pilots’ unplugged run was to promote their upcoming acoustic record, “Perdida,” which drops Feb. 7. “Perdida” marks the band’s second album with Gutt on vocals and the band’s follow-up to 2018’s self-titled album.

Original Stone Temple Pilots vocalist passed away in December of 2015.
