The Revolution 3 Tour delivers The Cult, Bush, and Stone Temple Pilots


Remember that time in middle school you made a mix CD and put on it a bunch of rad ’90s alt-rock bands like Bush and Stone Temple Pilots but then you added a song by The Cult to show your classmates you fucking meant business? Well, do we have the tour for you.

It’s called The Revolution 3 Tour and it delivers Bush, Stone Temple Pilots (with new singer Jeff Gutt) and The Cult to 20 unsuspecting cities and towns across North America this summer. Relevant to our interests here in New England are a pair of shows: July 30 at the Blue Hills Bank Pavilion in Boston, and August 2 at Gilford’s Bank of New Hampshire Pavilion.

This summer package tour totally beats up that Everclear, Marcy Playground, and Local H tour that was announced last week.


This Revolution 3 Tour is sold as a “tri-headlining” experience, according to Rolling Stone, where each act will play a full set but the lineup order will be different each night. It kicks off July 18 in Nashville before concluding September 2 in Phoenix.

Want statements? We got statements:

“We are looking forward to see everybody in the summer. This is a great tour for rock fans,” says Bush’s Gavin Rossdale.


“We are thrilled to join our friends this summer to celebrate our music with all of you,” adds Stone Temple Pilots’ Robert Deleo.

“We look forward to celebrating glorious summer nights of responsible (and irresponsible) hedonism with all of you,” offers The Cult’s Ian Astbury.
