The party rocked on for the D Las Vegas’ first anniversary as Stone Temple Pilots took the stage with new front man and lead vocalist Chester Bennington on Friday night. D Las Vegas CEO Derek Stevens again introduced the band, firing up the Fremont Street crowd after saying, “This is the greatest place to have a party I’ve ever been to!”

As green smoke billowed from behind the drum set, the longtime rockers emerged to thunderous cheers, kicking off the set with “Down.” The song was a fitting way for Bennington to introduce himself as the newest member of STP, belting the line, “Pleased to meet you, nice to know me.” The band parted ways with longtime front man Scott Weiland in February and re-outfitted this spring with Chester Bennington, who is best known as the lead singer of Linkin Park.

The ecstatic crowd sang along to smash hits “Vasoline,” “Dead & Bloated,” “Plush,” “Interstate Love Song” and “Sex Type Thing” while the show streamed live high overhead on the Viva Vision canopy. Fans also got a taste of STP’s new sound, rocking out to “Out of Time,” the first released track off their upcoming EP High Rise which will be the first production featuring Bennington’s vocals.

The scheduled set list wasn’t enough for the passionate audience who cheered for an encore until the band came roaring back on stage for a few extra songs.
