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!
