Voice of Rock Glenn Hughes had to cancel his UK tour at the last minute to be treated for an illness that – while not life threatening – had to be dealt with immediately in order for it to not becoming serious.
The vocalist and bass player is expected to make a full recovery and hopes to continue his Glenn Hughes Performs Classic Deep Purple Live world tour as soon as June.
Four dates were quickly rescheduled for later in the year but shows for Edinburgh, St Albans, Liverpool and Nottingham had to be cancelled. Working around the clock, new November dates were also added for the tour to stave fan disappointment, the first leg of the UK tour having received such critical acclaim.
Refunds for customers who had purchased tickets continue to be made available until Monday 27th May, should they be unable or no longer wish to attend rescheduled November dates.
Currently a member of rock super group Black Country Communion alongside maintaining a solo career, Hughes first became known as a member of Trapeze before joining the ranks of Deep Purple, then a varied career that has seen him involved with acts as diverse as Black Sabbath and The KLF.
