GLENN HUGHES returning to USA for March 2016 Solo Tour

w/ special guests - Joanne Shaw Taylor
With recent sold out live shows in South America and Europe, GLENN HUGHES, the legendary 'Voice of Rock', is extending his Solo Tour throughout 2016 beginning with new Spring-time shows in the USA.

The set will showcase highlights from Glenn's colorful career: Trapeze, Deep Purple, Hughes/Thrall, Black Country Communion along with his Solo material.

On the announcement of his new shows in the USA, Hughes comments:

"I am thrilled to announce that I will be on tour in the USA. My first leg will start on March 2 thru March 26.

On the agenda for the whole of 2016 is all about live shows, I have not done an extensive tour in quite some time and I feel now is the appropriate time, as my fan base is growing.

We have completed a sold out South American tour, and now playing across Europe.

This is a Rock Show, my Power Trio, my career started in a trio, that band was Trapeze, who had success in the USA prior to my joining Deep Purple.

Here we go... see you down the front".

Support for the tour are Joanne Shaw Taylor, the queen of British blues, whose latest critically acclaimed album, The Dirty Truth, has received many accolades from press and fans alike.

Vocalist/bass guitarist/songwriter Glenn Hughes is a true original. No other rock musician has carved such a distinctive style blending the finest elements of hard rock, soul and funk. That astonishing voice is Hughes' calling card. He's known as a singer's singer. Stevie Wonder once called Hughes his favorite white singer.

Hughes, a native of Cannock, England, absorbed all kinds of influences, including early British hard rock, the Beatles and, most importantly, American soul and R&B. The sleek Motown sound from Detroit and the gritty Stax/Volt sound from Memphis left their mark on him.

The first important band Hughes was a member of that achieved notable success was Trapeze. The band's early '70s albums included Medusa, Trapeze and You Are The Music... We're Just The Band.

In 1973, Hughes joined Deep Purple. The trailblazing hard-rock legends had just weathered the departure of vocalist Ian Gillan and bass guitarist Roger Glover, but guitarist Ritchie Blackmore, keyboardist Jon Lord and drummer Ian Paice continued with the addition of Hughes and David Coverdale.

Since 1992, Hughes has toured extensively in Europe, Japan and South America in support of solo albums, but more recently has been involved with award winning supergroups', Black Country Communion with guitar star Joe Bonamassa, keyboard player Derek Sherinian (Dream Theater) and drummer Jason Bonham, son of the late Led Zeppelin legend John Bonham and California Breed, who also featured both Hughes and drummer Jason Bonham.

In between his hectic schedule, Hughes also found time to publish a book, "Glenn Hughes : The Autobiography - From Deep Purple To Black Country Communion", the Number 1 best seller is available in both hard and soft cover editions from all good retailers.



So make no mistake. The Voice of Rock never left the building.
