(CelebrityAccess) — Bassist Glenn Hughes announced that he was canceling his planned tour of UK and Europe, after co-headliner Living Colour booked a conflicting support slot on Alter Bridge’s European tour.
Hughes contends that Living Coulor's management knowingly booked the tour with Alter Bridge, while neither Alter Bridge, their management and agents or even Living Colour’s agent at TKO were aware of the conflict.
Hughes says that promoters were forced to offer refunds on all tickets for the tour, which had been on sale since April, after Living Colour backed out of the co-headlining slot.
“I am saddened and disappointed that I will not be able to perform for my UK and European fans as I had originally intended,” 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.”
Hughes has performed with groups such as funk rock pioneers Trapeze, the Mk. III and IV line-ups of Deep Purple, as well as briefly fronting for Black Sabbath in the mid-1980s.
