Stone Temple Pilots have revealed that vocalist Jeff Gutt will be undergoing surgery for a “severely herniated disc.” As a result, the band’s upcoming acoustic tour has been cancelled.
The group commented:
“We are sorry to announce that we must cancel the upcoming Perdida acoustic tour. Our brother Jeff has a severely herniated disc and doctors have advised immediate surgery which will require weeks of recovery time and physical therapy.
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.
Thank you all for your understanding. We love you all and hope to see you on the road again soon.”
As previously reported, Stone Temple Pilots’ new album “Perdida” will be released on February 7.
