The web site of legendary vocalist/bassist Glenn Hughes (DEEP PURPLE, BLACK SABBATH, TRAPEZE) has been updated with the following update:
"Glenn's performance at the Classics in Rock was nothing but sensational. In Rotterdam (Holland) almost 10,000 people whitnessed Glenn Hughes in a very fine form. Hughes' stunning performance took the jaw dropping crowd from breathless gazing during 'Whiter Shade of Pale' and 'Mistreated' to massive applauses at the end of 'Burn'. Backed up by a Philharmonic Orchestra this was a truly memorable performance. There also were performances by Graham Bonnet, John Waite, Chris Thompson, Jon Anderson and many more. The entire event was filmed for a future DVD release."

Hughes' latest solo album, "Music for the Divine", received its long-awaited U.S. release late January via Demolition Records. The CD, which is available in Europe on Frontiers Records, was recorded in drummer Chad Smith's (RED HOT CHILI PEPPERS) house and again features Smith on drums and longtime Glenn Hughes collaborator JJ Marsh on guitar. Also featured are RED HOT CHILI PEPPERS guitarist John Frusciante and Mark Killian, who has provided the string arrangements and keyboards.
Glenn recently announced his new touring band as Jeff Kollman on guitar, Mark Mondesir on drums and Anders Olinder on keyboards.
