Glenn Hughes NOT to support Whitesnake

Glenn Hughes at Hell Blues Festival 2007

Regarding the possibility of Glenn Hughes supporting Whitesnake in Norway in May, Glenn’s webmaster says:

No, that isn’t happening. The media have got it wrong again, Glenn will NOT be on the bill for this particular festival. There will be some appearances with Come Taste The Band in 2009, as there were earlier this year, but not at this festival.

Thanks to John H for the info.

    I bet you DC would of loved for Glenn and his boys to support WS on that leg of the tour, they still talk to each other, theres no problem between those two! It would of been a hell of a show! If Whitesnake gets a US tour in 09, that would be great to see them together! Also Merry Christmas to you all on here! BP

    Neglected?!
    And yes DC and GH are still brothers and they will be forever I hope so…

    As we all know Glenn is the hardest working ‘purpler’ of them all so…

    I’m sure it would be hell of a great show with Unrighteous brothers again on one stage,but sadly it isn’t happening ‘this time around’…

    And just to get you mad-MARK III IS THE BEST MARK(not MARK…B A N D) EVER!
    Purple died at Liverpool Empire…period
    Everything after is just killing the great legend(and I saw them 4 times in ’90’s)…but it’s their band not mine…

    AW Hell, Now we will never know it they both would have performed “BURN”. OR if DC would have requested that Glenn not sung during his set & do the dual singing of the original during the ‘snake show.

    heck of a bass player too. would of been a great show with two of the best singers. hopefully, they would make a top 100 vocalist list of all time. hold your breath though, they are part of the DP family.

    I knew it was too good to be true! With D.C.Ā“s recent vocal fuck ups, he sure couldĀ“ve use for some boost up his arse in the shape of Glenn “Superlungs” Hughes!!

    D.C. sure can use the holidays to evaluate his future, and figure out what his next moveĀ“s gonna be!!

    Amen Stefan,

    Glenn is light years ahead of DC now. It wouldn’t do to have the WS fans here a decent version of Burn from the warm up act.

    I would love to see them on stage together, BUT after the last Whitesnake show Gleen is lightyears ahead of David when it comes to the voice. Only when David accept that he is NOT a screaming but rock/blues singer he will be back in that league where Gleen is. Look at Ian Gillan. He knows 100% how to sing today. We just need David to see the light again.

    To all 1-14

    I’m agree with you all except the reunion tour.

    I hope Dave invites Glenn (or Glenn invites Dave)to join him sing on one song. I preferred Sail Away, Highball Shooter, or You Keep On Moving. Burn? No waaay!!

    IF DC’s voice is down the pan….Glenn would be an idiot to share the stage with him……
