Scott Weiland has challenged a fan to join him on-stage for a fight while performing on his solo tour in New York City.
It's not clear what the audience member did to upset the singer, who was fired from Stone Temple Pilots a few weeks ago, but Weiland's reaction was caught on camera which you can see below.
With the audience applauding, Weiland invites him to the stage:
"So you're f--kin' pulling that f--kin' like gun s--t off on me? Then come up and meet me one on one, man. You play tough guy from an audience behind a barricade. I'd love to... Trust me. Actually, let him stay here, and just get all riled up. He won't be able to sleep tonight."
Stone Temple Pilots never explained why Weiland was booted from their band which he co-founded in 1986, but he claims they did it as a publicity stunt to boost ticket sales. Despite their troubles, Weiland has faith that they'll work things out:
"Stone Temple Pilots really have been together a long time, and I'm proud of that," he said last week. "I really do like those guys, and it hurts my feelings when we aren't getting along, because I view them as family."
