Some great reviews from Glenn Hughes‘ UK tour, and after last night’s show in Leeds at The Church, it’s not hard to see why. A tight, gritty and heavy barnstorming performance, with a tremendous rendition of Soul Mover which I will remember for a long time. Quite how Glenn managed to find the energy to even do the show given the personal news he’d had to cope with earlier in the day I don’t know. Nobody would have complained if he’d decided to cancel, or if the show had been subdued, but not a bit of it; Glenn seemed to draw strength by being on stage, and told the audience his mother had made him promise to finish the tour come what may. And while the venue’s immediate spiritual associations are long gone, with the stained glass windows and the stage lights mingling together, it was perhaps as fitting a place for him to be last night as anywhere.
