From wikipedia:

On January 20, 2008, a Miami Herald blog reported that Scott said that the public "should be on the lookout for an STP reunion in the coming months." Billy Morrison also claimed on a December 29, 2007 edition of Camp Freddy Radio that STP have venues on hold for shows and that "it's no secret, half of LA knows it," implicating a reunion tour.

It was recently announced that STP will be headlining the Rock on the Range festival in Columbus, Ohio this May, making the group's reunion official. [8]

Awesome!

I'm glad I got to see them on the Purple tour. I haven't really cared much for any of their albums after that (Tiny Music did have a couple good tracks, at least).

Never really been a fan, but I don't dislike their music either.

Edit: And yeah, everytime I hear their name, I can't help but think of the car care product brand.. lol

I saw them on that tour as well, with the Meat Puppets I believe.

That would have been nice, Redd Kross was opening up for them in Europe.

Weiland proved to me he was still a decent frontman (at least for a night) when I saw Velvet Revolver several months ago. IMHO Slash was the best performer onstage that night though. I would like to hear some old STP live, that would be sweet. Vaseline, Sex Type Thing... sign me up

I like how every time I have seen this mentioned today, the person bringing it up assumes that people will understand that STP is supposed to refer to Stone Temple Pilots and provides no explanation whatsoever.

Yep, saw VR few months back as well, they played some STP songs in the mix of VR songs. Just made me want to see STP live all that much more.

Yep, pretty much my feelings.Core and Purple were great, Tiny Music began their downward spiral possibly due to too much white china.

unfortunately it's supposed to amount to nothing more than a short string of dates rather than a full-blown reunion. hopefully it works out and expands to something more significant (album and ~1,000-seat club tour would be nice)

Did they play much GNR when you saw them? They had a nice mix of all 3 bands' tunes in Detroit. There was a 4-song acoustic set which included Patience... great show.
