Judge Allows Weiland To Tour

Troubled VELVET REVOLVER singer SCOTT WEILAND has been given permission to leave the country for the band's tour by the judge who is overseeing his probation from two felony charges of drug possession.

Weiland appeared in a Pasadena, California, court on Tuesday (03AUG04) and was thrilled the judge deemed his efforts to overcome drugs a success, after Weiland received a certificate from GENESIS, a nearby rehabilitation centre, for completing a six-month program there - Pasadena Superior Court Commissioner COLLETTE SERIO added that all of his drug tests have been negative.

Weiland's spokesman MITCH SCHNEIDER says, "The judge congratulated Weiland for complying with everything. They were very happy with his participation in the rehab program, and that he had been so cooperative.

"The judge even congratulated him on his success with Velvet Revolver and apologized for the technicality," Schneider said, referring to a bench warrant issued on Friday (30JUL04) and held until Tuesday (10AUG04) to ensure Weiland's appearance in court.

Under the terms of his probation, the star must enrol in another six-month drug-treatment program, as well as attending three NARCOTICS ANONYMOUS meetings per week for the next three years (ends07) he must also continue periodic drug testing while Velvet Revolver tour Europe.

Weiland's next probation status hearing is scheduled for 1 October (04).
