Scott Weiland Is A No-Show At Velvet Revolver's Sundance Concert

Velvet Revolver frontman Scott Weiland was a no-show for the band's scheduled performance last night (Sunday, January 20) at the 944 Magazine's party at Tao during the Sundance Film Festival in Park City, Utah. According to PageSix.com, "speculation from inside the band's camp said the singer had missed his flight to Sundance for the performance, but that didn't stop his bandmates from literally asking the crowd if they wanted to have a go."

"It's was crazy, they were inviting anyone who wanted to get up sing," an onlooker told PageSix.com.

A short clip of Velvet Revolver/ex-Guns N' Roses drummer Matt Sorum taking on the vocal duties for Velvet Revolver's rendition of the GN'R classic "Patience" during the Tao concert can be viewed below.

Weiland was expected to appear in a Los Angeles courtroom last Thursday (January 17), where his recent DUI case was to be continued. The singer was charged with driving under the influence of drugs after being pulled over by police in late November.

Velvet Revolver will begin a new U.S. tour on January 24 in Chicago, with dates confirmed through February 9.

Eek! Matt Sorum sings lead vocals for Velvet Revolver

Velvet Revolver frontman Scott Weiland failed to turn up for the band's scheduled performance on Sunday, January 20 at 944 Magazine's party during the Sundance Film Festival in Park City, Utah.

Weiland was rumoured to have missed his flight to Sundance, and the band were reduced to asking members of the audience to step up on stage and sing.

Even VR drummer Matt Sorum had a go at warbling, wearing a very stylish flat cap and looking like a slimline Phil Collins.

You can see Sorum taking on the vocal duties for a rendition of the Guns N' Roses classic Patience here.

Ouch. Let's hope it doesn't happen again in a hurry.

Meanwhile, Weiland recently told the Miami Herald here that fans should be on the lookout for a reunion of his previous band, Stone Temple Pilots, in the coming months. Watch this space.

Weiland released a statement after the no-show. Blabbermouth, January 23, 2008:
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Velvet Revolver frontman Scott Weiland has issued the following statement regarding his absence from the band's concert Sunday night (January 20) at the 944 Magazine's party at Tao during the Sundance Film Festival in Park City, Utah:

"I truly apologize on behalf of the band for our inability to perform at the scheduled party during the Sundance Film Festival. I performed the previous night in Miami in support of the A-Rod Family Foundation, and afterwards a jet was arranged to fly myself and a couple of the crew members to the festival, where I was looking forward to performing. Not only was I hoping to ROCK, but I also wanted to snowboard AND have some well...good and clean fun! Seriously, though...I even already had my 'one-piece' long johns on (no shit!!). Now...the problem was that the pilot of the private jet would not...I mean, absolutely would NOT fly us to Park City due to the low visibility and poor weather conditions. We did everything in our power to make it happen. At last minute, Matt tried to hook up a flight from L.A. to Park City, but the owner of the plane could not find a crew in time.

"I'm sorry...we all are. Who knows...maybe this happened for a reason."

Velvet Revolver's publicist also issued a statement. Blabbermouth, January 22, 2008:
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

BLABBERMOUTH.NET has received an official statement from Velvet Revolver's publicist regarding frontman Scott Weiland's absence from the band's concert Sunday night (January 20) at the 944 Magazine's party at Tao during the Sundance Film Festival in Park City, Utah. It reads as follows:

"On Sunday, January 20, the private plane that Scott was traveling on from Miami (where he performed the night before at the AROD Family Foundation and Bay Point Schools benefit) to Utah was diverted because of bad weather. The pilot wouldn't fly from Miami to the Salt Lake City Airport because of extremely poor visibility and a potential poor weather system that made it dangerous for the plane to fly to Salt Lake City. Two hours into the flight, it was diverted to the Van Nuys Airport (in Los Angeles).

"Scott, the band and management tried to find a flight to take him from Van Nuys to Salt Lake City in time for the band's show, but this was not possible. By the time Scott landed at the Van Nuys airport, it was too late to make any connecting flights. Velvet Revolver's tour manager also looked into private flights for Scott, but a crew was not available in time for an immediate departure that would have brought him to the show on time."

Weiland was expected to appear in a Los Angeles courtroom last Thursday (January 17), where his recent DUI case was to be continued. The singer was charged with driving under the influence of drugs after being pulled over by police in late November.

Velvet Revolver will begin a new U.S. tour on January 24 in Chicago, with dates confirmed through February 7.
