Keeping Glenn in our prayers
After a crazy morning where it was announced Steven Tyler would be forced to cancel the remaining dates of his tour due to medical issues, another classic rocker found himself in a medical bind during a concert in New Zealand.
Glenn Hughes, formerly of Deep Purple and Black Sabbath, was taken off stage by paramedics after what people are deeming as a “medical event” during a concert in New Zealand. About an hour and 45 minutes into his set, Glenn left the stage and didn’t return. He was attended by paramedics, and is reportedly “sitting comfortably” and resting with no serious threats lingering.
Many concertgoers report that Glenn was unable to stand after performing for an hour, and that throughout the entire concert he was complaining about a lingering cold that was still affecting his performance. So far reports are saying Glenn is expected to make a full recovery, however there is no update on if this episode will have any impact on the immediate future of his tour, or career.
Get well soon, Glenn!
