The Deep Purple star, who now lives in Los Angeles, will be coming to the Premier Suite lounge on Thursday, July 27.

Those going along will get to see a short film about his time in the band, an interview with him conducted by Radio DJ Nicky Horne, and an acoustic set, while fans paying for premium packages will get to meet and have their photograph taken with him.

Premier Suite owner Scott Murray said: "It will be very up close and personal which I don't think people realise.

"He is coming home and it will be a fabulous and special evening.

"Unlike with his other gigs this will be very intimate and quite unique, very much like we did for Tiffany when she came back here.

"People will get to hear about his time in Deep Purple, Trapeze, as well as when he went into the Betty Ford Clinic (for drug rehabilitation), and about what he's doing now with the Black Country Communion. It's just going to be a great night."

Earlier this year Hughes, now 64, hinted he was working on a new album out of Sunset Studio in Hollywood.

It has been an incredibly mixed 12 months for the rocker bookended by the deaths of both of his parents.


His father William died at the age of 90 in April 2016 but his mother Sheila delayed breaking the news to the musician as he was being inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame alongside his Deep Purple bandmates i New York.

But then Sheila passed away herself this February at New Cross Hospital while Hughes was at her bedside.

Tickets for 'An Up Close and Personal Evening with Glenn Hughes' cost £25 for standard entry.

VIP packages, costing £95 and including a drinks reception, meet and greet and photograph with the star, are still available.
