Legendary bassist and vocalist Glenn Hughes announced Friday he is being forced to postpone the start of his upcoming US tour after suffering a setback in his recovery from dual-knee replacement surgery a month ago. "I am sorry to say that some recent setbacks in my recovery from knee operations are the reason that I can't get out to see everyone as soon as I had hoped," the Deep Purple, Trapeze and Black Country Communion member noted in a statement. "I want to make sure I give my fans the best live experience possible and promise it will be worth the wait. I can't wait to see everyone at the shows." The tour was set to kick off March 2 in San Jose, California, but will instead kick off August 9th in Annapolis, Maryland. The trek will hit all the same cities, and tickets for the original shows will be good on the rescheduled date. The tour is slated to run 15 dates, capping off September 3rd at Hollywood's famous Whiskey-a-Go-Go. Click Here for a complete rundown of the dates and venues.
