Glenn tour spoiler


Don’t read if you don’t want to know!  Thanks to people who have nodded me over the Glenn Hughes tour list (we’ve not been able to make this tour ourselves). Quite a good selection, although I might have expected one or two more Come Taste songs. As a tour it is what it is, I kind of prefer his regular solo shows when we get more of a mix and the Purple songs come as part of that, but maybe this makes more sense commercially. 1400 attended the show in Bristol according to our man on the gate with the clicker.

Stormbringer / Might Just Take Your Life / Sail Away / Gettin’ Tighter / You Keep on Moving / You Fool No One / High Ball Shooter (someone tells me this was just interpolated!) / You Fool No One (reprise) / Mistreated / Smoke on the Water / Georgia on My Mind. Encore: Highway Star / Burn

By my ready reckoner that’s five from Burn, two (or one and a few bars) from Stormbringer, two from Come Taste and two from Machine Head!

Holmfirth Picturedrome – May 14th
Edinburgh Queens Hall – 15th
Birmingham O2 Institute – 17th
Norwich UEA – 18th
St Albans Arena – 20th
Salisbury City Hall – 21st
Liverpool O2 Academy – 23rd
Nottingham Rock City – 24th

    Glenn’s vocals remain top notch … and this was a very enjoyable evening for those of us who never saw the Burn/Stormbringer/CTTB line up.
    I’ve added another live version of “Mistreaded” to my compare / contrast list of vocalists/guitarists.
    Glenn speculated why a song written for Burn (You keep on moving …) didn’t make it until CTTB was released. What was he saying?

    I was at Belfast gig which unfortunately poorly attended. Think it mistimed to have drum solo in middle of 4th song just when everybody standing up and getting into it. Plus later on a rather lack lustre organ solo- this format is old hat and would have been better off with two more songs- maybe Holy Man and This time Around, However great performance by Glenn as usual displaying his vocal gymnastics.
