Artist News: Glenn Hughes Schedules New York City Performance

Posted on Saturday, May 05 @ 19:55:15 UTC by nightowl

Glenn Hughes has scheduled his first New York City performance in decades, to take place on Monday, June 4 at B.B. Kings in Times Square.

"New York is a city that has an energy like no other," Hughes said. "I sense anticipation from my fans there, and I always feel exhilarated when I perform there. It?s gonna be tight, and it?s gonna be funky."

The New York City show will follow a one-off weekend performance in L.A. with Red Hot Chili Peppers drummer Chad Smith, who collaborated with Hughes on his latest offering, Music For The Divine.

Dubbed "the voice of rock" for his rich, soulful singing, Hughes has explored many musical paths and worked with some of the greatest musicians in the business. Smith, Hughes' partner in crime in recent years, acted as a sounding board for Hughes' demos before the musicians came together with longtime guitarist JJ Marsh to flesh out the tracks for Music For The Divine. The trio, along with help from Chili Peppers guitarist John Frusciante and Mark Kilian on keys and string arrangements, recorded Music For The Divine live at Smith's Hollywood Hills home.

Doors are at 6 p.m. Showtime is at 8 p.m. Tickets are $25.00 in advance/$28.00 day of show and are available through Ticketmaster outlets.
