I hope it's because of the crappy setlist and not because he got on stage at midnight when he was supposed to be on at 9:00. After all...  rofl

Aside from the late start and crappy setlist, how was the backing band and Scott's performance?

Never got into his solo work as much as STP/VR, though I thought the first half of Happy in Galoshes was strong.

He's among my favorite live performers today.
I've seen him multiple times over the years with STP and VR and would say his performances vary.
He's never really disappointed, but has shown up with more energy at some shows than others.
Voice has always been strong.

I bought the tickets before it was billed as Purple At The Core.
Was looking forward to something I hadn't seen before, different takes, solo work etc.

Hoping it's not a B-Grade STP show.

Haha that show at the Gramercy was the first time I was thrown out of a concert.  My friend and I were so infuriated with how late he went on and we were extremely drunk as well.  I just kept shouting "This is worse than Chernobyl" over and over again.  The security guard put his hand on my shoulder and said "IIIIIII think its time for you to leave" and I asked if I could finish my beer first.  He laughed and said go ahead, so I pounded it and we left.  Worst show I've ever been to.

Just checked the setlist of the Gramercy show, and safe to say I'd probably be disappointed as well.
I'd like to think Dead Flowers would help salvage the show to some extent.

In his defense, he was touring his cover album, which I've yet to hear, but looks like the setlist is made up primarily of that album.

Going solely by youtube videos of other more recent shows, I like the way he switches up Do It for the Kids for example.
Hoping for something along those lines.

Scott's new album will be a rock album, and on the tour...


Stone Temple Pilots' Weiland wild about solo tour kicking off March 1 at Machine Shop in Flint

FLINT, MI -- Known as the flamboyant yet chaotic frontman of the Stone Temple Pilots, Scott Weiland is spending his Sunday much like the rest of the world. He's cleaning his house.

However, he saves a few minutes for an interview to advance his tour that starts at The Machine Shop on Friday, March 1.

"I'm really looking forward to it," Weiland said about his run with his solo band The Wildabouts. "It's going to be really exciting--something completely new."

During the 20-city jaunt, the rock icon will, for the first time as a solo artist, perform songs from the first two Stone Temple Pilots albums, 1992's "Core" and 1994's "Purple," both of which are considered classics by the band?s fans.

"Well, originally, it was an idea I came up with for STP for the anniversary of 'Core' to do the 'Core' album in its entirety," Weiland said, choosing his words carefully.

"The rest of the guys didn't want to do it.
So, it was still something that there was a lot of public interest in. Having that said, the idea was brought up to me through management. I talked to the guys in my solo band, The Wildabouts, and they were totally into it, as were the promoters. It worked out."

Weiland said he will still perform, during encores, some of his solo material from the albums "12 Bar Blues" and "'Happy' in Galoshes."

"We're still going to do some of our space jams and have them correlate into some of our STP songs and a couple STP songs into a couple of the covers that we've done during our solo band stuff," Weiland said.

Weiland and The Wildabouts -- multi-instrumentalist Doug Grean, bassist Tommy Black, drummer Dan Thompson and guitarist Jeremy Brown -- are working on a new album, he said. But none of those songs will debut live until the record has bowed.

"Previously, it was an art project," he said. "We're making a new album at this point. This is something where the new album is more of a rock 'n' roll album, as opposed to more of the sort of outside-the-box artistic sonic adventures that we've gone on in the past.

"The record that we're making, hopefully will attract more of the STP and Velvet Revolver fans. I think it will also help that we're doing this tour this way."

The album is halfway finished
, with all The Wildabouts contributing songs and ideas. The band is contemplating different offers right now.

"Hopefully by the time the tour's finished, we'll already be in some negotiations," he said. "But we're self-producing it, which isn't hard, unless you have a group of guys like STP where every single person in the band is a producer.

"It's not as difficult in this situation. We're writing together. It's actually a lot easier. We're allowing everyone to put in their input and it's coming across much more as a rock 'n' roll record, but it's much more organic sounding."

Cool show last night in Boston.
First time being at the Wilbur Theatre, which was much smaller than I expected.
Sound was great, and not a bad seat in the house.

The show was pretty much what I was hoping for.
I've seen STP and VR many times over, so was hoping for something different, rather than straight up cover songs.
They delivered, changing songs up enough to make it a unique show, but not enough to sacrifice the integrity of the originals.

Highlights for me were Naked Sunday, the Bowie cover, Jean Genie, and Kitchenware & Candybars(Scott nailed this one).
Hearing Where the River Goes was great. They segued into Mountain Song by Jane's Addiction, which was cool, but was hoping they'd come back into and end with WTRG.
Oh well.

Big Empty never disappoints.
Paralysis translated really well live, wouldn't have minded hearing some more solo stuff, but the crowd was clearly there for the STP hits.
Overall, it was a solid rock n' roll show, and I can think of worse ways to spend $35 than to watch one of the last and greatest frontmen of our time.

Setlist:

Opening Jam
Crackerman (Early Version)
Wicked Garden
Paralysis
Naked Sunday
Creep
The Jean Genie
Kitchenware & Candybars
Where the River Goes
Mountain Song
Big Empty
Can't Stand Me Now
Still Remains
Interstate Love Song

Encore:
Roadhouse Blues
Sex Type Thing

Yeah, I guess he was a bit.
Show started at 8:00, with one opening band, and Weiland took the stage sometime after 10:00.
Info was hard to come by, I called the muppets working at Wilbur and they didn't know how many opening bands there were, or if there were any at all.
I had seen in previous shows, there was at least one opener, and 2 at others, so I planned accordingly, showed up @9:30.
We were also getting hammered with snow that night, average of 14-18" by morning.

The people posting that it was a horrible show, and that Scott flubbed the lyrics, failed to realize that was intentional, playing the original demo version of Crackerman.
I thought it was cool, as I hadn't ever heard that version in a live setting.

Scott Weiland Irving Plaza Saturday night:

End of Mountain Song and resulting confrontation with fan in the front row...

Scott Weiland - "So you?re fuckin' pulling that fuckin' like gun shit off on me?" "Then come up and meet me one on one, man. You play tough guy from an audience behind a barricade..."

Video: http://www.mobypicture.com/user/jasonpijut/view/14927885


Edit to add more of what he says. Cheesy

The rocker ? who is touring with his solo band, THE WILDABOUTS ? confronted a heckling fan at Irving Plaza, telling the man in the crowd: "So you're fucking pulling that fucking, like, gun shit off on me? Then come up and meet me one on one, man. You play a tough guy from an audience behind a barricade. I'd love to. Yeah, that guy, trust me."

He continued: "I just don't get it. Guys like you fucking waste your money." Then he added to the security staff: "Actually, let him stay here and just get all fucking riled up. He won?t be able to sleep tonight."

A message from Scott from the stage last night. confused

You know one thing I fucking love, is that, being exploratory, is considered, WOW.  He's back on drugs again. Ya know it's been 11 fucking years, yes.....I do fucking drink sometimes. I go out with my friends and my band and we do drink sometimes. As far as that chick goes, that's been a whole other life away man. A whole life away that doesn't even make a dent in who I am today. But it could make a dent in who you are, because the way I looked at things when I was a kid, I looked at like Perry Farrell I looked at like Charlie Parker maybe there was some kind of connection. You know what, there wasn't. Maybe for the first 5 minutes, that's about it. Until that wet blanket just crawls around your car. Like an anaconda. Then you kinda feel shit, and all the music just comes from your head. And that's it. As far as that goes, (makes a phttt sound), that's it.

The guys is a complete mess! He was doing crack while in VR and keeps repeating this fantasy about being 11 years out of drugs...  confused

Antagonizing with fans and all that shit. I mean, does this guy have any friends or just hangers-on like another friend of ours?  no

Well I will say this, I noticed more so than ever being at the Boston show that Weiland sure has some low life "fans".
He's been fired from 2 bands in the past 5 years, so clearly he's not without his issues, but it's seems pretty damn popular to trash the guy in the press these days.
Then, he's got his own so called fan base giving him shit at his solo shows. Now I know every band has their share of idiots, but I never understood why someone would pay to see a show, and then talk shit?

Weiland seems to be under appreciated these days in my opinion. I've always considered him among the best, but I feel comfortable saying that he is, the single best living frontman going today. Just total package, no one today has the stage presence he has, to go along with the amazing voice he's known for, which is damn near as strong as his hey day. I've seen him on both sides of the spectrum, ranging from hammered and almost lethargic in comparison to the full of energy performances I've witnessed, but he has always sung the songs pretty much spot on. His voice and the way he goes about singing the songs has never disappointed me. He must be putting in the work to maintain his voice/range. He's still active creatively, so where's the problem people have with him?
The fact that he may or may not be on drugs? A rock star on drugs??!!
Hopefully for his sake he can get/stay clean, but it's got nothing to do with his music, and none of my or any other "fan's" business.

End rant.

Cool video and performance by the way!
Dig that jam.
