|VELVET REVOLVER have been forced to postpone tonight's show in Austin, Texas after lead singer Scott Weiland was advised by his doctor to give his voice 24 hours rest, according to ZRock.com.
Scott reportedly developed a secondary infection as a result of taking antibiotics for bronchitis while he continued to sing. "Because he continued to perform, Scott has developed inflammation of the vocal chords," stated ear, nose and throat specialist Dr. Joe Sugerman. "To avoid damage, he needs 24 hours of voice rest. He'll be re-evaluated tomorrow."
VELVET REVOLVER were due to perform at Stubb's in Austin, Texas. A possible make-up date may take place in October, according to a posting on the Stubb's web site.
