Stone Temple Pilots were back in Las Vegas for the second time since new vocalist Chester Bennington joined the band, and this time around Bennington was a little more seasoned and definitely owned the stage at the Joint at the Hard Rock for the headlining appearance for Komp Radio’s ‘Politically Correct Holiday Bash’. From opening strains of “Down” Bennington worked the stage and seemed to never stop moving as he nailed the vocals and gave a memorable performance fronting the new STP. The band is still sticking to a heavy set of STP older material and hits, as the new formation only has an EP out at present and only played a couple songs from it (“Blackheart” and the first single “Out of Time”), but the show was non-stop action and driving rock n roll through to the end. Bennington is still sticking with his home band Linkin Park, but will lead Stone Temple Pilots as the permanent frontman and seems to be right at home at the job. No news as to when this line up with Bennington and the original members brothers Robert and Dean Deleo and drummer Eric Kretz will pen any new material for a full length cd, but the EP is a edgy, solid step in a new direction for the band.
