1998 Monsters Of Rock, São Paulo, Brazil
Glenn appeared at the Philips Monsters Of Rock 98 festival. It took place in São Paulo,
Brazil on Saturday, September 26th, at Ibirapuera Stadium. The festival started at 12pm
local time. There was no Internet broadcast via RealAudio or ReadVideo, as MTV Brazil
had bought the broadcast rights :( MTV Brazil are planning on broadcasting
it at a later date.
After the show, Glenn went on-line appearing in the Chat Room that the
organisers had put together for the fans who couldn't make it to the show. It was a last
minute addition to the Monsters of Rock 98 website, and as Glenn was one of the first to
enter the Chat, a lot of his fans missed his appearance :(
The setlist was as follows:
Stormbringer, Muscle and Blood, You Fool No One, Another Day, First Step,
You Keep On Moving, Gettin' Tighter, Burn.
Here's how MTV Brazil describe Glenn and his work:
"Glenn Hughes was born in Cannock, England, on 21st of August of 1952. His first
professional band was Trapeze, that was formed in 1969 in Wolverhampton. Glenn was in this
band until the third summer of 1973 until being enlisted to be part of the super group of
rock, Deep Purple, when he was only 21 years old. Glenn remained in Deep Purple until
In 1992, Hughes spent some months in a clinic in California, for chemical substance
abuse, leaving there better physically and spiritually. His comeback started with his
first solo album in 15 years with the release of "L.A. Blues Authority Volume II:
Glenn Hughes - Blues". The album was the start of a great number of successes, including
in 1994, "From Now On" which in turn spawned the live album, "Burning Japan Live".
In 1995 Glenn released, "Feel" and in 1996 recorded "Addiction" which was initially
released in Europe and Japan.
And now, in 1998, Glenn is working on his latest album and arrives in Brazil to
participate in one of the greatest shows of rock of the last few years, Monsters of Rock 98.
The running order was as follows:
Dorsal Atlântica, Korzus, Glenn Hughes, Savatage, Saxon, Dream Theater,
Manowar, Megadeth and Slayer.
