SCOTT WEILAND WRAPS UP ‘PURPLE TO THE CORE’ TOUR IN AUSTIN, TEXAS
Txloungefly posted this review of Scott Weiland’s final show of his Purple to the Core tour on the BelowEmpty.com forums. The show took place on Friday:
Last show of the tour was awesome! I think it was even better than the Houston show. They came on about 30 minutes after Miggs and the show was spot on. The setlist was pretty much the same (Loungefly instead of Naked Sunday). The Belmont is a very cool outdoor venue. The crowd was really into the show with some moshing going on behind us. We were on the front row with some real fans, but there were also some d-bags just trying to get in a fight. The Wildabouts sounded pretty tight – Doug did some cool solos. They all genuinely looked like they were having a good time. Scott talked about the other guitar player getting married in April & how Tommy is single. Then he said his wedding is June 22. They played for about an hour and 45, and after the show, Tommy Black was walking around just talking to people & taking pics. We ran into Doug while we were sitting at a patio bar and he stopped and talked to us and let us get a pic. Really nice guy. (My husband is a huge Grateful Dead fan, so they had a common link). I didn’t get much video, but got some cool pics. This was a great show to end the tour!
