Scott Weiland brings timeless hits to Majestic, Madison

Timeless 90s rock vocalist, Scott Weiland, and his new solo band, the Wildabouts, have been busy. The now former frontman of Velvet Revolver and more recently Stone Temple Pilots is on his own, but doing quite well. Having hit the road for a few months, Weiland is making progress with his new friends; a little STP, a little VR, and a little something new.

Having played for much larger crowds during his time with his previous acts, you’d think Weiland would be bothered by the small club style venues he’s been frequenting on his current tour. By the looks of it, he’s not. In fact, it seems like he’s enjoying it very much. Getting up close with the fans in the relaxed atmosphere of a small cozy club or theater is perfect for ballads like “Big Empty” and some new work from the band, “The Way She Moves”.

Previous shows have proven Weiland can be rather unpredictable at times, often having a little too much fun and diving from the stage from time to time. As much fun as it may be, he’s gotten a little better and sounded fantastic for much of his show. In the later songs he was enjoying some fun with a newfound interest in electronics, and maybe he made a few of the final song’s words up here and there.

But this doesn’t stop loyal fans from coming anyway. Weiland has one of the most recognizable and tastefully vintage voices in rock. It’s been that way for awhile now. Hearing him progress from his days with Stone Temple Pilots to his more modern sounding Velvet Revolver, to now, Weiland has shown true talent with the many sides of his voice.

Don’t forget the megaphone that seemingly never loses its novelty. It’s something that’s become a part of him, something that’s expected of him.

While we’re all happy with Weiland bringing us way back to the days of “Vasoline” and “Big Bang Baby,” hearing the band’s new work such as “Circles,” played late into the encore, shines light on another generation of Scott Weiland. We’ll just have to wait and see.

With all the trouble he’s gone through in past years, it’s great to see the new direction working well for him and the Wildabouts.
