Blind Melon Returns (Again)
Over 12 years after the death of singer Shannon Hoon, Blind Melon reunited in 2007. The band toured the country with new lead singer Travis Warren replacing Hoon and claimed its jam-status through appearances at festivals like Langerado. In late 2008, Warren left the band for unknown and often disputed reasons. The band remained an entity as it searched for a new singer and even asked fans for replacement suggestions.
Though the band continues to search for a new vocalist, the members of Blind Melon have confirmed a few additional shows. Warren will reunite with the band for these dates, which will take the alt-jam group in 2011. A message from the band reads, “We just want to confirm the rumors. Yes, the band has a few shows coming up. Travis will be singing. The future of the band is still up in the air. The guys are taking it very slow, this time around. However, 3 shows have been confirmed.”
