Bassist/vocalist Glenn Hughes has announced dates for a fall tour of Europe.
The month-long, 22-date run – which starts in Milan, Italy on September 15 – will see Hughes perform highlights from his extensive career, including music from Trapeze, Deep Purple, Black Country Communion, California Breed and his solo material.
"After being studio bound for the past few months and then touring with California Breed late last year,” says Hughes, “where I received the most incredible live audience reaction to my appearances while out with Alter Bridge and Slash, I felt it long overdue for a solo tour of my own.
“I'm looking forward to hitting the road with a brand new solo band and reaching out to as many fans as possible. It's a real pleasure for me to be coming back to perform live."
Hughes will be joined by special guest Jared James Nichols, who recently released his debut EP, “Old Glory & The Wild Revival.”
The bassist was most recently a part of California Breed, which he formed in 2013 with Jason Bonham – from the ashes of supergroup Black Country Communion - and guitarist Andrew Watt.
The band, which released their self-titled debut in 2014, announced their breakup in January after Bonham bailed last August due to scheduling commitments and was replaced by Queens Of The Stone Age/Eagles Of Death Metal drummer Joey Castillo.
