According to the Focus Information Agency, more than 2,000 Bulgarian and Romanian rock fans rushed to the Bulgarian coastal town Kavarna to hear the legendary DEEP PURPLE/BLACK SABBATH vocalist/bassist Glenn Hughes perform. The concert was organized to celebrate the town's holiday, May 6.
"I am happy that I have been conferred the title 'Honorary citizen of Kavarna'," Hughes said in an interview with Focus-Varna Radio.
The main reason for Glenn's visit to Bulgaria was to support the Bulgarian nurses sentenced to death on charges of deliberately infecting Libyan children with HIV. Hughes said that he intended to make the cause popular among his colleagues. He added that he and other rock stars plan to organize a concert in support of the nurses.
