Post-grunge rockers The Stone Temple Pilots will take the stage of Verizon Wireless Amphitheatre on Aug. 17 to perform their hard-rock, heavy-riffed best of '90s hits and newbies. To be sober or not to be sober? That's the ultimate question, for frontman Scott Weiland, who is known for his frequent bouts of boozed up performances. Black Rebel Motorcycle Club to open. $20-49. 7 p.m. Verizon Wireless Amphitheatre, 707 Pavilion Blvd. 704-549-5555. www.livenation.com.
