GLENN HUGHES: New York City Show Announced

Legendary vocalist/bassist Glenn Hughes (DEEP PURPLE, BLACK SABBATH) has announced his first U.S. show of 2009:

Saturday, March 28, 2009
B.B. King's Blues Club & Grill
237 West 42nd Street
New York, NY 10036

Showtime: 8 PM

Tickets go on sale at 10:00 a.m. on Wednesday, December 3, 2008 from both the venue's box office and Ticketmaster.

Fan-filmed video footage of Glenn Hughes' acoustic performance on September 29, 2008 at The Robin in Bilston, UK can be viewed below (clip uploaded by "RippingFleshFromBone").

Glenn Hughes' new solo album, "First Underground Nuclear Kitchen (F.U.N.K.)", received its official North American release on October 7 via Blistering Records through Ryko/Warner distribution. The CD came out in Europe in May via Frontiers Records.

Produced by Glenn in Los Angeles, after countless hours spent writing in his home studio, "F.U.N.K." is another magnificent statement from the "Voice of Rock." "It is a roots album, it is a true account of my musical heritage but also fearless and multi-dimensional," said Hughes. Once again all drums on the record were played by none other than the great Chad Smith of the RED HOT CHILI PEPPERS, while Luis Maldonado took care of the majority of the guitars (JJ Marsh and George Nastos only appear on two songs each) and Anders Olinder is on keyboards (with Ed Roth guesting on three songs).
