Glenn Hughes Music Hall

A new hall in Serbian city of Dimitrovgrad will be called the Glenn Hughes Music Hall. Glenn will inaugurate the hall with a concert he’ll play there on may 9th.

We congratulate Glenn and Dimitrovgrad’s officials for their commendable taste in music. However Joanna, sitting next to me, couldn’t help herself but to quote Spinal Tap appearing on The Simpsons:

“Yeah, and we’re really big now in Bulgaria, and that other “aria.”
“Hungaria.”
“Right, Hungaria.”

Thanks to GHPG.net and Daniel Begtsson for the info.

    Wikipedia says (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dimitrovgrad)
    Dimitrovgrad is the name of three different towns in Europe:
    Dimitrovgrad, Bulgaria
    Dimitrovgrad, Russia
    Dimitrovgrad, Serbia
    All three were named after Georgi Dimitrov.

    We relied in the information posted on ghpg.net.
