Review: Glenn Hughes – The Fleece, Bristol

‘, and Hughes certainly meant business! ‘Flow’, one of his latest releases, opened the set, and did not disappoint, gaining one of the biggest cheers of the night! ‘Medusa’ (which was written nearly 50 years ago!) was also featured, and shared much the same fate. Marrying both old and new work, Glenn Hughes created a wonderful euphony, and made the set one to remember. Hughes, in short, was an absolute pleasure to watch. His mastery of his instrument brought the bass to the very forefront of the show, which was without doubt a delight to see (and hear!) as bassists are, sadly, all too often forgotten!Glenn Hughes’ instrumental prowess is second only to his extraordinary voice. Indeed, he has one of the most exceptional, iconic, and distinctive voices in rock. Throughout the show, he consistently hit notes that people half of his age could only dream of! Recordings do not do this man justice; simply incredible. The set was insane from start to finish! Whilst the powerful voices of the crowd were present throughout the set, as the final song, ‘Burn’, ended they became almost deafening. After Hughes had exited the stage, and the house lights had gone up, I knew that I wasn’t alone in hoping that he wouldn’t leave it quite so long to come back to Bristol next time!
