Rock legend Glenn Hughes is heading this way on his first-ever US solo headline tour – playing Salisbury Beach at The Blue Ocean on August 12th.
Glenn Hughes is a true original. No other rock musician has carved such a distinctive style blending the finest elements of hard rock, metal, soul and funk. Stevie Wonder once called Hughes his favorite white singer.
Hughes achieved notable success with Trapeze and in 1973, he 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 supergroup, 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. Earlier this year, Hughes was inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame for his work in Deep Purple.
