Scott Weiland challenged an audience member to fight him during his solo concert at Irving Plaza in New York City on Saturday.
On tour with his band, The Wildabouts, the singer confronted a heckling fan, telling the man in the crowd: "So you're pulling that, like, gun s*** off on me? Then come up and meet me one on one, man. You play a tough guy from an audience behind a barricade. I'd love to. Yeah, that guy, trust me."
He continued: "I just don't get it. Guys like you waste your money." Then he added to the security staff: "Actually, let him stay here and just get all riled up. He won’t be able to sleep tonight."
Weiland's 20-city run of dates feature him performing songs from the first two Stone Temple Pilots albums, 1992's "Core" and 1994's "Purple".
STP recently dropped a public bombshell when they announced the “termination” of Weiland from the band; the singer has challenged that move, calling it “something for the lawyers to figure out.”
