Glenn recently spoke with Greg Prato of the Long Island Pulse in support of his upcoming show at NYCB Theatre in Westbury, NY., USA on August 25th, 2018
What I’m doing is I’m taking inspiration from live performances from the mid 70s. I’ve got a file of work that you may have heard or seen from Cal Jam, London, Paris and LA. I’ve taken live arrangements of those classic songs, rather than the studio cuts. I just feel that it is closer to what we were doing when we were “all in our glory,” if you will. I think it’s re-translating with the audience and it sounds great with me and my band.
America is a big, big thing for me… which is where I’ll be playing quite a lot. There will be three legs of this tour, first one being August/September, the next one next Spring and then late Summer of next year. America will be getting to see a lot of yours truly. And I can’t wait.
My North American tour starts in New York in Westbury, and let me say to you all, this is a great, great start for me in the neck of the woods that I love so much, the East Coast, at a great time of year. It’s a great way to start my tour and we are all so much looking forward to it.
