    Hi all,
    Yesterday in New Zealand, Ticketmaster announced the Music of Cream tour June 2017. This is the sons/relations of the original members playing the music of Cream. The special guest being our very own Glenn Hughes. They often jump the gun or get things wrong here, so i was wondering if anyone knew anything about this tour, as in is it real?

    Hi,
    I was going to order Afterglow from Amazon because I saw last week that they had a limited edition with a bonus DVD (usual making of Doco with some live in the Studio Videos etc). Anyway to cut a long story short it isn't there anymore. Does anyone know if this has been pulled or will it be released later? Christmas being round the corner and all that.


    cheers

    I was looking at the latest posts on http://freehardmusic.com and noticed that there are lots of Trapeze bootlegs just been posted. Anyway one of them is a soundboard from Beaumont Texas 1976 with LA Cut Off as the second track in. Anyone have any history on this ie: is it real, would have been before Play Me Out Was released as Glenn mentions it a brand new song from an album being released in November in the intro.

    Hi all,
    Can anyone tell me what the song titles of the tracks on the 10inch EP are and if they are available anywhere else. I couldn't afford the deluxe edition, had to settle for the paperback. (Not that i'm complaining it was an excellent read afterall). But to satisfy my addiction, i've just got to hear those new songs.

    cheers

    jaggy_nettle@xtra.co.nz would love to hear from you.

    Hi all,
    Does anyone know where I can buy the moonstone Project Hidden In Time as individual tracks ala iTunes. I'm only after the Acoustic song Glenn sings on.

    Thanks

    I had a bit of car trouble on the drive to Taranaki from my home in Auckland (about a 5 hour drive) and didn’t think that I would make the Meet and Greet. So I was very happy when I arrived with time to spare and a car in one piece. Met up with my friends from Napier Geoff and Steve and off we went to meet the great Glenn Hughes. I was nervous having missed the man twice already I was sure that I was jinxed not to see him, so my smile while watching Glenn tune up was ear to ear.

    Glenn played Coast to Coast and I kid you not I had chills it was so beautiful. He then answered some questions which I managed to get in 2, it helps to know the guy doing the introductions, thanks Paul. Then we got to hear This Time Around which took me back to being 16 and hearing it for the first time. Managed to get Play Me Out Signed and my photo taken with Glenn. Now I would have been happy just to see that but we had the show to come the next night.

    I met a young couple from a local band in the crowd before Glenn performed and they hadn’t heard of him and didn’t believe that he had a 6 octave voice. During Mistreated I saw both turn to each other and say wow, 2 new recruits on the spot.

    Glenn literally stormed the stage with Stormbringer then followed with an extra long version of Mistreated complete with vocal gymnastics, I was in heaven. Next up was a very funky Getting’ Tighter where Glenn showed everyone that he is just as good on the bass as he is a singer. The local band just played their asses off and Glenn was all smiles, loving every minute of it. You Keep On Moving with vocal interlude was next and after the crowd going nuts for a couple of minutes the encore of Burn.

    I was a bit shellshocked, my first Glenn Hughes show was over but I was very happy. My only complaint would be that I’d liked to have had some solo songs and at just over an hour I could have had at least another hour. Oh well just have to wait until next time, hope it’s not too long away.

    Hi all,
    This is my friend Geoff's review of the show. I will post mine when i've got all the pictures/video together.

    Glenn Hughes Q&A / Unplugged Session -- Unbelievably we got to meet Glenn, ask him questions and got his autograph (I got 'Come Taste the Band' LP, Trapeze 'Medusa' CD and Hughes / Thrall CD all signed). A true gentleman and his acoustic renditions of "Coast to Coast" & "This Time Around" were so beautiful!

    Glenn Hughes was phenomenal! His voice is the BEST I have ever heard it, putting all six octaves to full use and of course his bass playing was wicked. Set list was "Stormbringer", "Mistreated" (long version), "Gettin' Tighter" (extended with funked up jam), "You Keep on Moving" (also extended with solo vocal section) and "Burn". Glenn went down a storm and played for about an hour. He hinted that he will return for a full gig early next year!

    Okay starting to get really excited now, just a couples of weeks to go till I see my all time musical hero. I have had it confirmed that glenn will do a Meet and greet session at 1 or 1.30pm on the Friday and then the show on Saturday. I just got to figure out what to get signed, probably go for my vinyl copy of Play Me Out but then again maybe he could sign me and i'll get it turned into a tattoo, crazier things have happened. Oh and i also know where he's staying while he's here.

    cheers

    I have heard a rumour that Glenn might be doing a question and answer session for a limited audience and that he would play a few acoustic songs at that. Just a rumour at this stage as he flies in on the saturday of the show and gone the next day i believe. I look forward to meeting any fellow forum members at this show, i personally can't wait it's been a lifelong quest to get to see Glenn so i'm praying nothing goes wrong.
