Voodoo Vegas are currently preparing to hit the road as main support on Chris Jericho's Fozzy UK tour in three weeks time.
The band play two UK gigs before heading out with Fozzy and will be in great form as they have just played support to Glenn Hughes in Poole. Frontman Lawrence Case tells the story below. You can also check out all the tour dates and the extremely good video for 'So Unkind'.

Lawrence said about the Glenn Hughes gig; "It was a real honour to support Glenn Hughes. Last time we toured France we were watching Deep Purple's California Jam DVD, but let's just say rock 'n' roll politics ruled.
"When the show was booked up we were told we could play plugged in, but when we turned up to the venue we were told we had to play acoustic because Glenn doesn't like noise before he plays.
"We couldn't believe a rock legend like Glenn Hughes didn't like noise before he plays. It kind of knocked us for six. We had to drive home and get our acoustic gear and put together a reworked acoustic set in thirty minutes that we would be playing in front of a 400 strong sold out Mr Kyps in Poole.
"The crowd were very pumped up and expectant of our acoustic set and Glenn was very complimentary of the band and also my voice. To hear from the Voice Of Rock that my voice is excellent - that's a real buzz!
"He also apologised about the mix up with us having to play acoustic so that was cool. All in all it was a bit of a crazy show, but like I said it was a real honour to support the Legendary Glenn Hughes."
