Scott Weiland has extended his solo tour. The singer has announced a series of 7 shows on the west coast, starting May 29 at the House Of Blues in Hollywood.
The "Purple At The Core Tour" sees Weiland performing songs from the first two Stone Temple Pilots albums, 1992's "Core" and 1994's "Purple".
Scott says he is working on a new solo album with his touring band, The Wildabouts. You may remember in late February, Stone Temple Pilots announced the "termination" of Weiland from the band; the singer immediately challenged that move, calling it "something for the lawyers to figure out."
Jon Bon Jovi has denied a tabloid report that a contractual disagreement between he and Richie Sambora caused the guitarist to pull out of Bon Jovi's current tour on the day it was scheduled to kick off.
The front man told Statesman.com. "I think Richie's doing all right, (but) I haven't spoken to him. We were surprised. It was 3:30 on show day on Tuesday and we got a phone call that he wouldn't be there. It's a personal matter.
"Don't believe what you read on TMZ because it's the furthest thing from the truth."
This isn’t the first time Sambora has left mid-tour. A few years back he ditched the Jovis to seek substance abuse treatment at a rehab and, naturally, when he pulled out this time it led to speculation that he was back on the sauce.
