Glenn Hughes Tour Cancelled Because Of Living Colour Stuff-Up

Glenn Hughes has had the rug pulled out from under him by another band’s management, forcing him to cancel an upcoming U.K. and European Tour.

Hughes was supposed to go on the road with Living Colour; however, that band’s new management booked them for a tour with Alter Bridge for the same dates and, while Hughes’ people are being civil about the mix-up, there is one word in the press release that betrays their real feelings.

According to the release, Living Colour had signed on to tour with Hughes last April but “new management” for the band, and this is the key word, “knowingly booked them onto the Alter Bridge tour”. This new management appears to be their booking agent as the statement goes on to exonerate Living Colour’s agent TKO who they say were unaware of the double booking.

A statement from Hughes also says “an undermining manager got involved and in turn ruined what would have been an amazing tour.”

The full statement:

Glenn Hughes is forced to cancel his UK and European tour today after the co-headliner Living Colour booked a conflicting support slot on Alter Bridge’s European tour. New management for Living Colour knowingly booked them onto the Alter Bridge tour although they were already confirmed for the Glenn Hughes co-headline tour, which had been on sale since April. Alter Bridge and Glenn Hughes have been long-time friends and neither Alter Bridge, their management and agents or even Living Colour’s agent TKO were aware that this was taking place.

Glenn Hughes was planning on touring Europe in support of his upcoming solo album, Resonate. When word got to promoters that Living Colour were no longer planning to perform on the co-headline dates, they were forced to refund all tickets. All ticket holders of Glenn Hughes’ UK and European tour will be offered refunds at the point of purchase and can call the venues for more information.

“I am saddened and disappointed that I will not be able to perform for my UK and European fans as I had originally intended,” explains Glenn Hughes. “When I partnered with Living Colour to do this tour, I thought we would be able to make something special happen at these shows. Unfortunately, an undermining manager got involved and in turn ruined what would have been an amazing tour. I can’t wait to get back to the UK and Europe to bring the new songs of ‘Resonate’ to my fans overseas.”

Over the course of his career, Glenn Hughes has been a member of Trapeze, Deep Purple and Black Country Communion, among others. His latest solo album, Resonate, will be out Friday.
