Icon34 KOC - Classic Rock Magazine - August 2013

The Billion Dollar Supergroup

Excellent full colour coverage in the new issue of UK based, "Classic Rock Magazine", featuring Glenn and Kings Of Chaos

There's a moment during the acoustic section in the first set that is truly astonishing. As the rest of the band sit on a semi-circle of sofas at the back of the stage, Glenn Hughes steps up to the microphone to sing "Mistreated", the slow-burning ballad from Deep Purple's "Burn" album. What starts out as a straightforward acoustic take on a song that, frankly, quite a few people in here aren't hugely familiar with, gradually mutates into a showcase for Hughes's voice. He uses it like an instrument, pulling out individual notes, drawing them up and then letting them go. It's a truly remarkable sound.

As his voice weaves and dives, looks of genuine surprise cross the faces of the rest of the band sitting behind him; that surprise soon turns into amazement. When he finally winds things down six or seven minutes later, they all stand up and join in with the rapturous applause from the audience. It is one of the most ridiculously brilliant vocal performances anyone in the place will ever have heard.

It's fabulous to read Glenn's vocal performances getting some decent praise these days. Too many times in the past the press have been critical of him. Maybe his performance and style has changed/improved in their eyes. Whatever the reason, its good to see
