Stone Temple Pilots Suspend Tour After Weiland Rant

Scott Weiland delivers 'odd and confusing‚ banter onstage in Houston' and the band immediately delays a dozen scheduled shows1

Sep 22, 2010 9:20 AM EDT

Stone Temple Pilots have rescheduled a dozen tour dates so the recently reunited band can "take a short break" before resuming their fall trek in mid-October. No reason was given for the changes, which started with the postponement of last night's gig in El Paso, Texas. But on Sunday in Houston, STP took the stage an hour late, forcing five songs off their usual set list, and frontman Scott Weiland seemed disoriented, opening the show with a long rant and delivering "odd and confusing" banter throughout the night, the Houston Press reports.

Shaky Start to Stone Temple Pilots Tour in Red Rocks

Weiland was apparently slurring as he addressed the crowd on topics ranging from his prior drug problems to his inner ear monitor to the early days of STP. At one point, he admitted that he was drinking again. (One rumored reason for the delayed start - Weiland was still on the flight to Houston as the opening band played.) Earlier in the tour, Weiland faced accusations that he was lip-synching or relying on a backing track, after the audience could hear what sounded like pre-recorded vocals when Weiland fell off the stage in Cincinnati mid-song. the El Paso Times speculates that low tickets sales may have also factored into the decision to reshuffle the tour.

i was at their show just last month and it was one of the best i've been to (and i've been to alot). Weiland sounded excellent (compared to their show I was at in NJ 23 years ago) where he sounded terrible.

See? Thats the reason why I laugh everytime I hear their new single, when he sings, "When we used to take drugs."

For a period of 2-3 years (in the 90s), STP was my favorite band, and it was always tough being a fan because of all of the Weiland crap. It looks like things haven't changed much.

Maybe the lip-sync exposure sent him over the edge.

I don't usually care what artists do with the money I give them, but I decided to stop support Weiland years ago.

Say what you will, Weiland has no rock star pretensions. If you are around NYC, it isn't hard to find him in alphabet city, split a rock with him and chat.

I saw him at PNC a few weeks ago and it was a great show, but he was a little wacky during the banter between songs.

Sorry but everyone putting this guy down is forgetting this is what rock and roll is all about. This guy might just be the last real rock star around. All these other guys are appearing on american idol, going to rehab, having families and bringing their kids on tour, etc. Sex DRUGS and rock and roll. Good job Weiland!

Yeah I'm sure his bandmates are thrilled about him constantly derailing their career.

Yeah, "good job" there. Why doesn't he just OD and be done with it? By your reckoning he should have done himself in over a decade ago. Why that would have been SO rock and roll!

Amazingly, yes

Wikipedia

Years active 1986–2003
2008–present

I would have guessed they started in 1991 when they started ripping off Pearl Jam.

Wow, Scott looks like he's seriously messed up big time again. He's in a stoned stupor singing like a mental patient.

It's almost seems like he has a distant memory of a song he used to sing and he's just remembering a little bit of how it goes.

The way he's staring at a single spot the whole time makes it look like he's reading the lyrics off a karaoke machine.
