Scott Weiland’s apparently ill-considered tour for his just-as-ill-considered Christmas LP The Most Wonderful Time Of The Year marches on. A couple of weeks ago, we posted a grisly video from the tour’s opener. On Saturday night, Rolling Stone was there to review Weiland’s show at New York’s City Winery, and it doesn’t sound like things were much better: “Weiland opened with a swinging ‘It’s the Most Wonderful Time of the Year,’ and stumbled/mumbled through the bulk of it, gently bopping around the stage in his Humphrey Bogart best.” RS does report, however, that the audience remained with Weiland through it all (“The crowd, far from fair-weather, erupted with applause despite Weiland quite literally being at a loss for words straight out of the gate”), and things improved once Weiland started singing Stone Temple Pilots and Velvet Revolver shows during the show’s second half. But still, the prolonged yiiiikes continues. Check here for the full review.
And in the video below, you can get a minute or so of Weiland butchering “White Christmas” in Huntington, New York on Friday night while the guy behind the camera cackles about how empty the venue is. Because we all wished for schadenfreude this holiday season.
The Most Wonderful Time Of The Year, Weiland’s own persona Lulu, is out now on Rhino and available at eMusic.
