VELVET REVOLVER: WEILAND Responds To Shouts For GN'R By Throwing Megaphone Into Crowd
According to a posting at the VELVET REVOLVER fan site Velvet-Revolver.com, VELVET REVOLVER were "treated very badly" by a group of audience members during the band's appearance at the Rock Am See festival in Konstanz, Germany on Saturday (August 28). A few people in the crowd were reportedly shouting for "GUNS N' ROSES" in a move that was "very disrespectful towards the band in general and [singer] Scott [Weiland] and [guitarist] Dave [Kushner] in particular." Scott reportedly asked the audience to "come on stage and sing yourselves if you want GN'R," and later threw his megaphone into the crowd during "Sex Type Thing".
VELVET REVOLVER are currently touring Europe in support of their debut album, "Contraband", which has been certified platinum by the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA), signifying shipments of more than 1,000,000 units.
"Contraband" debuted at No. 1 on The Billboard 200 chart, selling over 250,000 copies. Notably, this marks the best-ever debut for a new rock artist in the SoundScan era.
