Former Stone Temple Pilots singer Scott Weiland, who died Thursday while on tour, was scheduled to perform next week in Austin at the Parish with his current band the Wildabouts.
Weiland, who was 48, rose to fame when Stone Temple Pilots’ 1992 debut album “Core” became a multiplatinum seller and later fronted the rock supergroup Velvet Revolver. A post on his Facebook page stated that Weiland “passed away in his sleep while on a tour stop in Bloomington, Minnesota, with his band The Wildabouts.”
The Parish performance was scheduled for Dec. 9. As of Friday morning, the show was still listed on the venue’s website, with tickets sold via Austin company Front Gate Tickets. The concert’s promoter, Austin company C3 Presents, declined to comment on the record Friday morning about the status of the event, or about refund procedures for those who had purchased tickets.
Weiland’s passing follows the March 30 death of Wildabouts guitarist Jeremy Brown at age 34. The band had played multiple dates in Austin at South by Southwest a couple of weeks earlier, promoting their March 31 debut album “Blaster.” The Los Angeles coroner’s report attributed Brown’s death to “multiple drug intoxication.”
