The legendary Voice Of Rock Glenn Hughes will be performing 2 special solo shows along the East Coast of Australia in late April 2013.
Glenn will be hot on the heels of his one-off performance at the Stone Music Festival as part of super group ‘Kings of Chaos’. This whirlwind solo tour will see Glenn stopping off in Melbourne and Sydney, and audiences can expect a real treat as Glenn performs a spectacular two set career spanning show.
Glenn will be playing a dual set, kicking off with an intimate acoustic solo set that will allows fans to get up close and personal with the man himself before ripping into a full electric show. You can expect to see and hear some highlights from his time with Deep Purple MKIII, Black Country Communion and songs from other solo projects.
Support for the two shows will be Melbourne up and coming rocker’s ‘Massive’.

Excellent interview by Jeb Wright of Classic Rock Revisited 😎
“In the interview that follows, Glenn Hughes speaks openly and honestly about the debacle and the uncertainly of what will become of Black Country Communion. Read on to discover how Glenn feels about the band, his band mates and about not touring. This is a riveting interview, so honest at time that it hurts.“
…and as Glenn mentioned in an earlier tweet…
“I hope this answers some of your Q’s…“

Black Country Communion, the Anglo-American rock group comprising vocalist/bassist Glenn Hughes, drummer Jason Bonham, keyboardist Derek Sherinian and blues-rock guitarist/vocalist Joe Bonamassa, have with their newly released album, “Afterglow“, debuted at No. 48 on The Billboard 200 chart in the United States.
It sold 8,500 copies in the USA during its first week of release, compared with their album from last year, “2“, which opened with 8,000 units to land at No. 71 and their debut album, “Black Country“, released in 2010, that saw a first-week tally of 7,100 copies to enter the chart at No. 54.
Just like its two predecessors, “Afterglow” was overseen by Kevin Shirley, whose catalog of hit records for LED ZEPPELIN, IRON MAIDEN, AEROSMITH, JOURNEY, THE BLACK CROWES and many more has made him one of the hottest producers that rock music has to offer. Shirley – who had the idea of putting Hughes and Bonamassa together in a band together after seeing them jamming onstage in Los Angeles back in November 2009 – is the group’s unofficial “fifth member.”
Black Country Communion hope to tour “Afterglow” at the start of 2013.
Due to the weather in New York City and surrounding areas, it’s now looking like the in-studio taping where Glenn Hughes was scheduled to perform, has been cancelled. If things change, a further update will be announced!
Glenn Hughes will be a guest on an upcoming VH-1 Classic, “That Metal Special” TV show, which is to be filmed on Tuesday, October 30th, 2012 in New York City and which will then be broadcast on Sunday, November 11th, 2012 @ 8/7c.
In addition to being interviewed, Glenn will perform some of his songs and also be a member of the very special house band including Brian Tichy and Alex Skolnick plus surprises 😎
Hosted by Eddie Trunk, Jim Florentine and Don Jamieson of That Metal Show, the hosts return to their New York roots to celebrate VH-1 Classic’s National Metal Day. They’re dusting off their old set and inviting some of their favorite guests, as well as a very special house band, to assist them in bringing metal to the people!
“That Metal Special” is a 90 minute roundtable talk show where legends of rock hang out and discuss all things hard rock and heavy metal. The show will feature highlights from the past TMS seasons as well as several in-studio performances.
On Sunday, October 28th at 7:00PM GMT / 11:00AM PT / 2:00PM ET over @ www.planetrock.com radio in the UK, Glenn Hughes will be broadcasting an AFTERGLOW track-by-track Special broadcast playing his favorite songs and talking about the making of the new album by Black Country Communion.
