Glenn Hughes | Electric Ballroom | 1 November 2015
“Music is a healer,” Glenn Hughes tells a packed Electric Ballroom. “It keeps us all sane.”
Of course he’s right, driving home the point with a two-hour masterclass in its power to uplift. His source material: highlights of a four-decade career, spanning his first taste of success with Trapeze in the early ‘70s to the latterday powerhouse that was Black Country Communion. Classics from Deep Purple, Hughes/Thrall, and his expansive solo discography round out a far-reaching setlist, given total cohesion by Hughes’ magnificent vocals and Doug Aldrich’s shape-shifting playing.
