Glenn Hughes is to appear at a special 'Storytellers' event to be held at London's historic Café de Paris from 12 noon to 4.00pm on Saturday 25th February 2017 with tickets are strictly limited to 200 and available from glennhughes.com.

An exciting highlight to the up-close-and-personal event will include the airing of a new one hour minute documentary, featuring never-before-seen classic archival vision of Glenn from the 70s. This will the world premiere of the film and is not to be missed.

The exclusive film screening will be followed by a two hour story telling session hosted by Nicky Horne where Glenn will delve into some of the great and even infamous events in his life to date.

For VIP ticket holders, the evening will conclude with a private audience with Glenn who will be signing an exclusive CD and answering questions about his colourful career in music.

Café de Paris is located at 3 Coventry Street, London, W1D 6BL.

Glenn's 40+ year career has seen him leave his indelible mark in several musical endeavours and bands, including Trapeze, Deep Purple, Black Sabbath, Hughes/Thrall, his collaborations with Gary Moore and most recently with Black Country Communion and California Breed.

The singer, bassist and songwriter is a living, breathing embodiment of British rock and his is a compelling story. Starting out in the 60s with beat combo Finders Keepers, he formed acclaimed funk-rock band Trapeze, then joined Deep Purple at their commercial peak. Flying around the world in the band's own jet, Hughes enthusiastically embraced the rock'n'roll lifestyle.

He played on three Purple albums, including the classic 'Burn'. When Deep Purple split up in 1976, Hughes embarked on a series of solo albums, collaborations, and even a brief, chaotic spell fronting Black Sabbath. Along the way he battled crack addiction and cocaine psychosis, before surviving a clean-up-or-die crisis and recovering to rebuild his solo career.

In this special London event Glenn will recount his adventures and misadventures with honesty and humour, bringing us up to date with the reformation of rock supergroup Black Country Communion and his critically acclaimed new album 'Resonate'.

MONSTERS OF ROCK IN FULL FLIGHT SURE TO BECOME FUTURE COLLECTOR'S ITEM

monsters of rock

Monsters Of Rock In Full Flight is stricylt limited to 300 worldwide and is available from 30th November but those ordering before 31st October will have their name published within a dedicated page in the book.

It's a deluxe 128 page hardback book in a metal flight case with a narrative by Jerry Bloom.

When promoter Paul Loasby put on the first Monsters Of Rock Festival in 1980 he could probably never have imagined it would become an annual event that would endure for so many years.

Featuring bands from the UK, Germany, Canada and USA, Loasby chose to stage the event at the Donington race circuit in the middle of England and it would prove to be a defining moment for many of the bands on the bill.

Not least for headliners Rainbow as it was the their last ever show to feature drum legend Cozy Powell. As it would happen it turned out to be the last for vocalist Graham Bonnet as well. For many of the other bands on the bill such as Scorpions, Judas Priest and Saxon, they were all on the ascendancy and would soon go on to even greater success.

Now in celebration of this first ever Monsters Of Rock Festival comes this hardback book full of glorious photos of the bands that took to the stage for that inaugural event including back stage shots. Most of these shots have not been published before which add to the uniqueness of this deluxe 128-page book which is packaged in its own flight case.

Also included are stories surrounding the event with tales and recollections from those who were there, including artists and fans alike. Each book will be signed by the author. The 300 will sell fast and definitely go on to become collector's items so order yours now right here to avoid disappointment.
