Glenn Hughes going it alone in London

Glenn Hughes is hitting the UK for a series of shows, kicking off in Norwich on 19 October and reaching London on 1 November.

The rock veteran’s solo concerts will celebrate his entire back catalogue, including songs made famous during his time with Trapeze, Deep Purple, Black Country Communion, and, most recently, California Breed.

Tickets go on sale on 23 June at http://glennhugheslondon.eventbrite.co.uk.

“It’s always a great pleasure for me to play in the UK,” says Hughes. “I have lived in Los Angeles most of my life, but my career started back in the UK.”

Adds the singer and bassist: “I love my fans, and personally interact with them online, or at venues on my travels. There is no greater high than performing and to reach out to my fanbase.”

Joining Hughes on stage are former Whitesnake and Dio guitarist Doug Aldrich and Swedish drummer Pontus Engborg.

Jared James Nichols, who recently released his debut album Old Glory & The Wild Revival, is the tour’s support act.

Hughes, a native of Cannock, England, first achieved success with Trapeze in the early ’70s, but it was during his time with Deep Purple, beginning in 1973, that the singer and bassist made his mark on rock history, playing a vital part on the seminal albums ‘Burn’, ‘Stormbringer’, and ‘Come Taste The Band’.

While maintaining a successful solo career since the ‘80s, Hughes has, in the past decade, demanded attention with his involvement in Black Country Communion (alongside the likes of Joe Bonamassa and Jason Bonham) and, more recently, California Breed (with Bonham back behind the drums).

Now that he’s out on his own again, catch Hughes at Camden’s Electric Ballroom on 1 November 2015.
