Glenn Hughes in the UK

GHJBBCC

Glenn Hughes will do two solo tours of the UK in the upcoming months. In November he will appear on a 5-date stint tied up to the paperback release of his autobiography (due on November 1 in North America and November 11 in the UK). These shows are billed as acoustical and including “excerpts from his life story”.

He will return to the UK in May 2012 for 3 solo performances, supported by Fish. Tickets for those went on sale last Friday.

Full details in our calendar.

    I know this has little to do with this topic other than the fact that I have witnessed the reality that Rock still has credence, but bare with me. Another rock favorite of mine, Alice Cooper is launching a tour around his new album..”Welcome 2 My Nightmare”, the long awaited follow-up to ‘Welcome to my Nightmare’. I was expecting to see this show, but ALL of the shows within 8 hours of driving distance from my house are SOLD OUT! He did the proper job of promoting. He has been on the late night talk shows discussing his new album. Classic Rock Magazine is doing a Special Issue for the release of the new Cooper record, including the new CD with bonus tracks and an extensive booklet of pics and info. This is where Purple has passed the buck regarding promotion. BCC is doing it right. They are hungry. Of course, they don’t have the luxury of being Deep Purple. I truly wish Purple was just a little less content and more hungry….

    Cheers

    @1 Tracy, Alice has had it right since the very beginning. And you’ll be pleased with Welcome 2. Alice, Bob Ezrin, old original Coop bandmates Michael, Dennis, and Neil, along with Vince Gill, Steve Hunter, Dick Wagner. Do the math…. :>

    Peace,

    Ted

    @ 1 & 2: You both mean of course that Alice Cooper’s management/record company are on the ball regarding promotion? As it’s the job of management/record companies to organize promotion. Now it may be the case that DP’s management and record company are begging the band to participate in promotion activities but they (the band) simply refuse? If so it surprises me that the band hasn’t been dropped… After all, who would want a band on the books that couldn’t be bothered? Or is it that the band are content with the no promotion situation? In which case they get what they deserve…

    @3: Indeed, Shep Gordon has been the consummate manager from day 1. He and Alice remain a well oiled machine as far as promotion and all that it encompasses….

    Love it to death!

    Peace,

    Ted

    Deep Purple are “Lazy”…They still sell a lot of tickets so why do they need promotion? That’s their reasoning…

    Just picked up W2MN and listened to it 3 times. I found it to be way too childish. As much as I love the Coop, he really went off the mark with this. The first thing that comes to mind when I listen to it is the Muppet Show. It’s like the soundtrack to some kids TV Halloween special. I was really disappointed. It is growing on me a little, but if I wasn’t such a fan, I wouldn’t have been able to make it through the first half of the CD. Unfortunately, the only halfway decent song on the whole CD is even his song, but rather the cover of the Animals song “We Gotta Get Outa This Place” which is just a bonus track available only on the “Classic Rock Magazine” Special edition.

    Cheers
