Glenn Hughes

Following a strong showing from support band Stone Broken, it was the turn of classic blues rocker Glenn Hughes to display his well-honed vocal and bass guitar skills. He didn’t disappoint. The small Manchester basement club was as full as I can remember and (surpringly) with a good age mix of fans. Hughes is an animated performer and a solid team player whose connection with his audience was instant and close.

The setlist represented a trawl through rock history with songs from Trapeze, Deep Purple together with a small selection from his brilliant newer supergroup, Black Country Communion. Highlights were numerous but ‘Medusa’ was epic while I loved the diverse changes of pace and mood including the high emo of ‘You Keep On Movin”. The Rhythm section under the leadership of Hughes and drummer Engborg provided a rock solid foundation. Exuberant, brash, explosive, moving and a show that I won’t forget in a hurry!
