Glenn just returned home yesterday from New York City and Foxboro, Massachssetts in the USA, from sold out shows and an ecstatic reception from the audiences at the 3 shows he played for.
We thought you’d like the chance to see some videos and plenty of pix from the weekend East Coast trip, especially if you’re planning on seeing him yourself sometime soon.
Next up is the Whisky A Go Go in his hometown, Los Angeles, California and in just a short couple of weeks he’ll be in Australia!

The venue for upcoming show in New York City, The Highline Ballroon, on Saturday, March 28th, 2009 has instituted an extremely strict curfew time!
Glenn will be on stage at 8:00PM prompt and the venue has made Curfew at 9:30PM. Yes, you read that right!! This also has the unfortunate side effect of Glenn and band, being unable to do a Meet’n’Greet.
This is totally out of Glenn’s control and he’s forced to adhere to this extreme and highly unusual arrangement.
As a reminder, the venue’s Doors Open at 6:00PM and the evening of music begins at 7:00PM with a support band, Luke Mulholland (www.lukemulholland.com).
PLEASE SPREAD THE WORD, THANKS.
For those attending the gig the night before in Foxboro, MA. on the 27th and for the lucky few, who were confimed for the private event the night after in New York City, on the 29th, there will be no such restriction in place and also for the Whisky A Go Go gig on April 4th in Los Angeles, California.
