Glenn Hughes was pure Gold as he resonated across The Fleece. But first, we have the young band that is wowing audiences across the airways and live wherever they play. Yes, Stone Broken hit Bristol tonight with many fans already in the audience. They played to a packed Fleece, full of anticipation for Glenn Hughes.

This was a support that excited, left you wanting more. What makes Stone Broken, the band radios want to play and audience what to go out and see live? Chemistry. Yes, that magical distillation where all the band blend and create a cohesive rock sound combined with commitment. The commitment that they will have fun playing music that gives you pleasure. With Rich Moss on vocals that climb Read Why Tonight Glenn Hughes was pure Gold as he Resonated across The Fleeceabove the drumming of Robyn Haycock so that the lyrics are never lost in the guitar and bass maelstrom from Chris Davis and Kieron Conroy.  Every track was nailed to the mast of Stone Broken live, as they head across Europe with Glenn Hughes throughout February. The standout number in the oh too short set was Waiting For You, you may have heard it played on the radio but live it has a raw vibrant energy.   New songs that will be on the next album given an airing tonight were Just A Memory which is a heavier sound, and This Is Life. Long may Stone Broken climb reaching new audiences creating solid rock music that entertains.

We shared his grief, he was playing tonight giving The Fleece audience the music we wanted to hear, despite the emotional pain of his mother passing the night before. The emotions flowed off the stage and back from the audience as we were bathed in the love that is Glenn, and the mutual love for music that rocks from Deep Purple days through to his latest acclaimed album Resonate.

Glenn hit the ground running, on form with those clear, powerful vocals. What a voice. And to think it was his fourth instrument of choice graduating from the piano, to guitar, to bass then finding his voice at nineteen. He has been on fire for the whole tour building energy from people that love the rock he brings into our lives; tonight was no exception with raw energy, poignancy and the ability to make each song fresh as Read Why Tonight Glenn Hughes was pure Gold as he Resonated across The Fleeceif being sung for the first time. Glenn connected personally with everyone in the audience, he was singing for each and every one of us. Let’s not forget his sublime string bending bass playing that resonates its deep chords through every number. With a great tight band behind him, guitarist Soren Andersen powerhouse of a drummer Pontus Engborg completing the trio from Scandinavia tonight on Hammond Organ Jay Doe bringing memories of Jon Lord into The Fleece tonight. Thanks to Glenn and his introductions and praise of the band at the end of the set we also know the height and weight of the monstrous trio that is a platform for Glenn Hughes to leap from.

Deep Purple’s Might Just Save Your Life was awesome, the emotions rippled and we were collectively joined at the hip with Glenn and his band.

Glenn Hughes Back On Tour 2017

 

Vocalist/bass guitarist/songwriter Glenn Hughes is a true original. No other rock musician has carved such a distinctive style blending the finest elements of hard rock, soul and funk. Stevie Wonder once called Hughes his favorite white singer.

Glenn Hughes was recently inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame as part of the Mark III line-up of Deep Purple. He spent key years of his career as the beloved bassist and vocalist of the group, recording on the classic albums: Burn, Stormbringer, and Come Taste The Band. Hughes and other members of Deep Purple were in attendance to receive the honor.

Glenn’s 12th studio album, and his first album in eight years, Resonate was released on 4th November 2016 to great critical acclaim and hit #6 in the Official UK Rock Album Chart.
