    GLENN HUGHES Undergoes Dual Knee-Replacement Surgery, Reschedules U.S. Tour Former DEEP PURPLE bassist/vocalist Glenn Hughes has rescheduled his recently announced U.S. headline tour. The trek, which was originally set to begin on March 2 in San Jose, California, will now launch on August 9 in Annapolis, Maryland.The 64-year old icon underwent dual knee-replacement last month and delays in the recovery from those operations are the reason for the rescheduling of the tour."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" states Hughes. "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 "Voice of Rock" will perform a selection of music from his extensive career, including songs from TRAPEZE, DEEP PURPLE, HUGHES/THRALL and BLACK COUNTRY COMMUNION as well as his solo material.Backing Hughes on this tour will be guitarist Søren Andersen and drummer Pontus Engborg. The tour will make stops in cities such as New York City; Detroit, Michigan; and Chicago, Illinois before wrapping up at the legendary Whisky A Go Go in West Hollywood, California on September 3. British blues songstress Joanne Shaw Taylor has been tapped to open the shows.Tickets are currently available and links to the rescheduled dates can be found on GlennHughes.com.

    In a brand new interview with GigsAndFestivals.com, former SEPULTURA frontman Max Cavalera has confirmed and he will team up with brother and fellow ex-SEPULTURA member Igor Cavalera (drums) to celebrate the twentieth anniversary of the band's classic album "Roots" by performing the LP in its entirety on an American tour later this year. He said: "We're trying to [make the tour happen]. We thought it would be a cool idea; twenty years of the album, to play the whole record. Hopefully it will go down well. Maybe we can come and even do that in Europe later in the year, or maybe some festivals would like to pick up that. Right now we don't know what's going to happen, but I've never played a whole record like that live, so it will be a first time for me too.""Roots", along with 1993's "Chaos A.D.", is considered SEPULTURA's most commercially successful release, having been certified gold in 2005 by the RIAA (Recording Industry Association of America) for U.S. shipments in excess of 500,000 copies."I never did it for the success, so for me, I like it better when it's not so successful," Max told GigsAndFestivals.com. "I didn't really enjoy that much success. In Brazil, 'Roots' was real big, and I couldn't even go outside my apartment. People would stop me on the street; it was like THE BEATLES! I did not like that; it's not for me. I like the underground, I like my privacy, so where I am now is much better. I don't even mind playing smaller places. I don't crave the 'big' things like Grammys and stuff like that; I'm not interested in that. For me, it's more about me and the fans. The connection that I have, it's really strong, and I think that's more important."Asked if the pressure of success on SEPULTURA was perhaps too much at that time, Max said: "I think so, a little bit. It was a chaotic time. Nobody was thinking things through, and the thing just self-imploded. It was out of everybody's control; it was just 'that's that,' and [the show at] Brixton [in London on December 16, 1996] was our last show. Fortunately, the label had the idea to record it, so they made it into a live record that a lot of people really like, 'Under A Pale Grey Sky'. It shows we were a very tight band. Inside the live performance, there was no trouble; it was all outside. So it's quite interesting to see that our live show was killer; it was exciting and heavy and fast."Max also insisted that he looks back with pride on what he achieved with SEPULTURA. He said: "I was glad that the band never went to shit, you know? That makes me proud, and we never made a 'Reload' kind of album like METALLICA, or 'Lola'/ 'Lula' [referring to 'Lulu', the Lou Reed and METALLICA collaboration album] or whatever that thing is, you know? I tried to listen to that thing, and I was, like, 'Oh my God!'"

    Former GUNS N' ROSES manager Irving Azoff has denied that he tried to pressure the band's lead singer, Axl Rose, into reuniting the original lineup of the group, explaining that "nobody tells Axl to do anything."Rose was sued by Front Line Management in March 2010 for nearly $2 million dollars in unpaid commissions. The company filed a lawsuit in Los Angeles, claiming that Rose owed the company $1.9 million, or 15 percent of the more than $12 million that Rose had earned from performances in Europe, Canada and South America, based on an oral agreement.Rose responded by filing a countersuit that claimed Azoff tried to bully Rose into doing a reunion tour with the original GUNS lineup. According to The Pulse of Radio, Rose claimed in his suit that Azoff did everything he could to sabotage the most recent version of GUNS after Rose said no to the reunion idea, alleging that Azoff tried "devising and implementing a secret plan to set up Rose and the band for failure so that Rose would have no choice but to reunite with the original GUNS N' ROSES members."Rose's suit added, "Upon realizing that he couldn't bully Rose and accomplish his scheme, Azoff resigned and abandoned GUNS N' ROSES on the eve of a major tour, filing suit for commissions he didn't earn and had no right to receive."In a brand new interview with The New York Times, Azoff was asked about Axl's claim that that the manager had tried to pressure the singer into reuniting the original GN'R lineup. Azoff responded: "I would never go to an artist and say, 'I want you to reunite.' If he had asked me if I thought it was a good idea, I would have said yes. But by the way, nobody tells Axl to do anything. He does what he wants to do."Azoff also commented on the recent announcement that Rose was reuniting with GUNS N' ROSES guitarist Slash and bassist Duff McKagan to play a number of shows later this year, including two at California's Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival in April. He said: "Slash and Duff McKagan are terrific people. Axl is a complicated individual that I wish nothing but success for. I think this is a good historical moment that the public deserves to see. I hope it happens."Rose and Azoff settled their lawsuits in June 2011 concerning commissions and concert touring.In October 2010, Azoff filed an official answer to Rose's charges by asserting 14 affirmative defenses to Rose's claims he breached fiduciary duty, committed constructive fraud and breached a contract. According to The Hollywood Reporter, Azoff stated in his response that Rose claims "are barred by statute of limitations; there was a waiver; There was an accord and satisfaction; that Rose consented to Azoff's actions; that Rose failed to take reasonable steps to mitigate the damage; and that any harm that came to Rose was due to the singer's own negligence, fraud or misconduct."
