Stone Temple Pilots gained some decent popularity back in the first half of 1990s when the “grunge” genre became a trend. The grunge was somewhat innovated by the bands from Seattle, but STP as they are sometimes known come from San Diego, California.
STP also built a fanbase in the Philippines, hence the reason of including Manila as one of their stopovers. Their concert will be on March 9, 2011, Wednesday at 8:00PM at the Araneta Coliseum.
