The return of Stone Temple Pilots is highly anticipated, although it might have been a no-brainer to figure out they wouldn’t be gone forever. STP was on my personal list of “Bands You Wish Would Reunite,” and the resurgence of reunion shows and tours — Rage is co-headlining Lollapalooza! — made a Pilots reunion all the more likely. Friday’s show is a must on the summer concert list for many music lovers, and the crowd is likely to contain equal amounts of skeptics, critics, and die-hard fans of the ’90s post-grunge rockers. Critics are calling this a risky reunion tour, and frontman Scott Weiland is perpetually scrutinized for his unpredictability. But isn’t that what made STP great? They’ve always been dangerous and mysterious, and that’s a good thing. $44-48, 8pm, AT&T Center, One AT&T Pkwy.,
(210) 224-9600.
