Glenn Hughes has cancelled his entire European tour after Living Colour’s "undermining manager" booked conflicting support slots with Alter Bridge.
The singer was due to play eight co-headline dates with Living Colour in the UK kicking off in Leamington Spa a week today (8th November) before hitting Europe throughout late November and December.
Last Wednesday Glenn’s team made the surprise announcement that Living Colour had “decided to pull the tour” and were replaced by the up and coming Planet Rock favourites Stone Broken.
However, it’s now been confirmed that the entire tour is off due to the fact they have been forced to refund all tickets.
Specifically blaming Living Colour’s new management team, a press release states that they ‘knowingly booked (Living Colour) onto the Alter Bridge tour although they were already confirmed for the Glenn Hughes co-headline tour.
‘Alter Bridge and Glenn Hughes have been long-time friends and neither Alter Bridge, their management and agents or even Living Colour’s agent TKO were aware that this was taking place.’
It adds: ‘Glenn Hughes was planning on touring Europe in support of his upcoming solo album, Resonate. When word got to promoters that Living Colour were no longer planning to perform on the co-headline dates, they were forced to refund all tickets.
‘All ticket holders of Glenn Hughes’ UK/European tour will be offered refunds at the point of purchase and can call the venues for more information.’
Glenn himself said: “I am saddened and disappointed that I will not be able to perform for my UK & European fans as I had originally intended. 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.”
Living Colour are supporting Alter Bridge on the mainland Europe dates of their current tour that starts this Friday (4th November) in Bilbao, Spain.
Glenn's brand new studio album 'Resonate' is released on Friday.
