Hughes in Kiev


Glenn Hughes was a last minute addition to the double bill show of Slade and Suzi Quatro in Kiev, Ukraine on March 30. Turned out, he was in town to play an acoustic set at a charity event organized by professional boxers brothers Klitschko the day before.

March 29 setlist:

  1. Mistreated
  2. Holy Man
  3. Medusa
  4. Catch the Rainbow (dedicated to RJD)
  5. You Keep on Moving

There are a couple of his pictures among glitz and glamour on JetSetter.ua (scroll down the page).

Thanks to Vladimir Dribuschak for the info and to fassemen for the videos.

    Tracy Heyder (Zero the Hero) says:

    3 out of the 5 are Purple tunes. One from each Purple album he partook in. And then his pre-Purple great track from Trapese, and last but not least…a tribute to DIO. Nicely done Glenn. I hope it was recorded and hope to hear it.

    I wonder what the future is for BCC?
    I have a bad feeling that they soon are history.
    I hope I’m wrong.

    Why is the thread about JLT and his interview with Jeb deleted?

    Is something rotten in the state of Denmark?

    None of the editors know?!


    Is there a Purple Ghost hijacking your game?

    And why is there still no Blackmore’s Night TOUR news while it’s shown elsewhere on the Net?

    Sorry, appearantly something has been done about the BN news.Kudo´s.

    I did not keep the link to the JLT interview, let alone my reply.

    1 thingy :

    Joe is saying he resents th song Since You’ve Been Gone on the DTE album.That he hates the `clappingpart`.


    He sang it ith OTR and everyone seems to think he was BOSS in that band.

    How about his friendship with Bonnet, touring with him et all…..
    He talks very negatively about the DTE album in general as well.

    Talking about clapping…..What about the song NO RELEASE then, Joe
    Maybe it was Roger that enjoyed the clapping, he was walking in a disco outfit way back as well. Not really looking the rockpart, Roger.
    And then saying that Graham did not look the part.

    Blackmore, on the other hand, said that Joe did something good with a throw away song,NO RELEASE, that is.
    I wish I had albums full of sngs like that!!!
