Stone Temple Pilots and Rival Sons rocked The MET Philadelphia Thursday night with the first US co-headlining tour. While fans waited outside the venue for doors to open, people walking by asked “who’s playing tonight”? A fan responded,“Stone Temple Pilots”. “Sweet”! The MET Philadelphia was packed with rock fans of all ages ready to be blown away with authentic rock and roll.
Tyler Bryant & The Shakedown, a rock band from Nashville, Tennessee opened the show with their hard rock and blue rock sound. The band came with a lot of energy and The MET was ready! Heavy rock cranked up the fans. Tyler Bryant (locals and guitar), Caleb Crosby (drums), Noah Denney (bass guitar and backing locals), Graham Whitford (guitar) sure did shakedown the spot.
As fans waited for Rival Sons to rock the stage,they waited in anticipation while watching a projection of an animal skeleton on a pitch black stage with an increasingly heartbeat. The crowd screamed as Jay Buchanan (vocalist), Scott Holiday (guitarist) and Michael Miley (drum) hit the stage. Jay Buchanan’shit the crowd with a rock hard note, reminding us that he is amongst the greats when it comes to vocals in a rock band.
Celebrating the 25th anniversary of their album titled Purple, Stone Temple Pilots took us back to the 90s blessing us with their classic hits. Jeff Gutt (lead vocalists) took to the crowd while giving us his grunge vocals and taking selfies with a few fans. A young Stone Temple Pilots fan held a sign.
