Velvet Revolver Cancels Remaining European Tour Dates

Published: 2005-06-09
Velvet Revolver has axed its final five European tour dates due to family obligations and pre-production work on the group's second album. A spokesperson is denying reports that the band has broken up and that front man Scott Weiland "is back on drugs." The group was to finish up its tour July 10th but decided on closing it down July 2nd with a performance in the London edition of Live 8.

The band's only album, Contraband, debuted at number one last year on the Billboard album chart, spawning the singles "Slither," "Fall to Pieces," and "Dirty Little Thing." The group will contribute a new song, "Come on Come In," to the "Fantastic Four" soundtrack, due out July 5th.

Velvet Revolver is still scheduled to replace Iron Maiden as one of Ozzfest's main attractions when the festival hits Albuquerque, New Mexico, on August 23rd.

My heart goes out to the families of VR, i dont know whats wrong but i saw them on the 8th and they played great, there must be something wrong because they seemed to enjoy it in Belfast, i hope they dont split because they rock, and i also hope Scott isn't back on drugs, it would be a dagger through my heart if this was true

I was there in Belfast too!! Wow what an amazing night. Fall To Pieces was the highlight of the night by far, wasn't it? I sincerely hope they aren't breaking up either.

I hate to say it but I was at the Belfast gig and my heart broke !!!
Scott was obviously off his head and the tension between him Slash and Duff was unreal ! Slash really looked as if his skin was crawling every time Scott got close ! I have seen Scott live before but this time he was sloppy ! I'm not sure if it was because I'm pregnant and had to stand still but I seem to be the only one who noticed how angry VR were that night !!! They did rock but I left the show gutted thinking the end may be near !!! Massive Scott Fan
