Scott Weiland & The Wildabouts Cancel European Tour
A statement posted on the band’s website reads: “Scott and the band, along with management, want the fans to know that this decision was not made lightly, but as it stood, the tour dates had far too many administration and production issues to overcome, and ultimately the fan experience would have been far below what Scott feels his loyal fans deserve. Again, we apologize to our fans and appreciate their understanding in this matter.” It is unclear whether the performances will be rescheduled, but they are still scheduled to play at London’s The Garage venue on September 3, 2015. The band has suffered several shake-ups over the past year, with Weiland firing his longtime guitarist and business partner Doug Grean in early 2014, drummer Danny Thompson departing to work with the Alan Parsons Live Project, and most notably, the shocking death of guitarist Jeremy Brown, who passed away in March 2015, aged 34, just a day before their album, Blaster, was released. After the tragedy, Scott Weiland & The Wildabouts continued on their North American tour with former Jane’s Addiction guitarist Nick Maybury filling in for Brown.
