Slash may be busy on his next "solo" album, but Velvet Revolver are reuniting. It will be a one-off gig this month, with singer Scott Weiland and no other shows are planned.
The occasion is "Love You Madly: A Concert For John O'Brien" on Thursday, January 12 at the House of Blues in West Hollywood, California. Also scheduled to appear are Adam Levine and James Valentine (Maroon 5), Sheryl Crow, Tom Morello and Stephen Stills.
Of his time in Velvet Revolver, Weiland recently told The Pulse Of Radio
: "That was right when I was getting off dope and those guys were all sober and clean, and I had a very special kind of kinship because we’d all experienced the same things ... It was a great band to see live, and I think we made two exciting albums.
"Love You Madly: A Concert For John O'Brien" pays tribute to award-winning ASCAP composer John O'Brien, who was found dead in his Chicago hotel room in August. He composed the music for "Nightwatch", "Iron Man" and many other movies and TV shows.
