Scott Weiland enters rehab facility

Velvet Revolver frontman has seven days to get well

Velvet Revolver frontman Scott Weiland has admitted himself to rehab.

After a show on Wednesday (February 6) in Los Angeles, the singer checked into an undisclosed rehab centre, resulting in the postponement of last night’s show at the House Of Blues in San Diego.

Weiland has been arrested several times in the past few years for drug related incidents, and has done a number of stints in jail.


His most recent arrest was November 21 when he crashed his car while driving under the influence in Los Angeles.

He previously completed a spell in rehab in 2003.

The next show on the tour schedule is February 15 in Australia, which leaves Weiland just seven days to heal before the tour resumes.
