If you ever wanted to sing along to “She Sells Sanctuary,” “Glycerine,” and “Vasoline” on the same night, you’re in luck. A package tour is coming to Phoenix that’s just for you.

The Cult, Bush, and Stone Temple Pilots are teaming up for a 20-city tour called Revolution 3. It will kick off on July 18 in Nashville and wrap up on Sunday, September 2, at Ak-Chin Pavilion in Phoenix.

Each band will play a full headlining set and the order in which each band appears will change from show to show. This marks the first time that these three groups have ever gone on tour with each other.

While the lineups for both Bush and The Cult will be familiar to longtime fans, STP will be fronted by a new singer since the passing of original Stone Temple Pilots frontman Scott Weiland in 2015. Jeff Gutt, a former X-Factor competitor and singer for nu-metal group Dry Cell, joined the band as the new lead singer in 2017.

Although two out of the three groups came to fame in the 1990s, all three feel like they're cut from the same cloth.

Bush, The Cult, and Stone Temple Pilots are old-school rock and roll throwbacks to an era when a crunchy guitar riff was worth its weight in gold and pretending to be Jim Morrison was still kinda cool. It's almost shocking that they haven't pooled their efforts and hit the road together sooner.

Tickets will go on sale at 10 a.m. on Friday, April 6, via Live Nation. Prices haven't been announced as of this writing.
