Stone Temple Pilots' Family Arena Show is Canceled

Posted By on Wed, Sep 22, 2010 at 12:48 PM

Family Arena just announced that Stone Temple Pilots' September 30 show is canceled. Says the venue:

Perhaps this has something to do with the erratic behavior Scott Weiland demonstrated at the band's Houston show last weekend. Our sister paper, the Houston Press, reported that an hour passed between openers Black Rebel Motorcycle Club and STP taking the stage -- and when the band did start playing, Weiland wasn't quite right:

A report about Sunday night cannot come without word on Weiland's condition onstage, in light of his lateness. He seemed off mentally, a little too meandering and talkative, bringing up his own past drug and alcohol abuse. At one point he did claim that he traded the hard stuff for boozing.

We can't say what was the exact story Sunday night, other than yes, he did seem a tad touched. This did nothing to alter his performance, though, with his trademark jigging and juking remaining intact throughout the night.

In a separate post, the paper posted a video of Weiland's rant:

Man. Sad.
