Glenn Hughes goes solo again

Glenn Hughes has confirmed a solo European tour, months after the collapse of previous project California Breed.

The three-piece were formed from the ashes of Black Country Communion by Hughes and Jason Bonham, along with guitarist Andrew Watt, and launched a well-received album last year.

But in January California Breed described themselves as “no more” less than 12 months after announcing their existence, adding: “Another thing we couldn’t keep together.”

The split followed Bonham’s departure in August 2014. Hughes said in January: “There was no way moving forward without all three original members.”

Now he reports: “After being studio-bound for the past few months and touring with California Breed late last year – where I received the most incredible live audience reaction to my appearances while out with Alter Bridge and Slash – I felt it long overdue for a solo tour of my own.

“I’m looking forward to hitting the road with a brand new solo band, and reaching out to as many fans as possible. It’s a real pleasure for me to be coming back to perform live.”

The set will consist of material from California Breed, Black Country Communion, Deep Purple, Trapeze and his solo career.
