Glenn Hughes ‘Performs Classic Deep Purple Live’ October 2018 UK Tour.
The tour starts on Tuesday 2nd October 2018 at O2 Academy Bristol, United Kingdom.
Fans have long clamoured for ace bassist and vocalist Hughes to perform more Deep Purple material, indeed the recent London show by Black Country Communion ended with a fiery take on Mistreated. Now Glenn goes the whole hog and takes a full DP songs set on tour. Here are the details as we understand them at this point…
Glenn Hughes, the former bassist and singer of Deep Purple, known to millions as the ‘Voice of Rock’, Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee, and the current front man for rock super group Black Country Communion, is pleased to announce that he will be performing Deep Purple only material with his “GLENN HUGHES PERFORMS CLASSIC DEEP PURPLE LIVE” nationwide UK tour in October 2018.
The nine date tour promises to be a dynamic, turn-back-the-clocks, two-hour live extravaganza, paying homage to his tenure in the MK 3 and MK 4 incarnations of Deep Purple – one of music history’s most seminal and influential rock and roll groups. All tickets are priced £27.50, except London at £30.00.
Hughes commented: “I’m excited to be touring the “Classic Deep Purple Live” in the UK this October. I first toured Classic Deep Purple Live in Australia and New Zealand last year and it went down like a storm. We’re also touring the show throughout South America in April, and festivals throughout the summer. By the time we tour the UK in October, we’ll be on fire.”
As well as Glenn on lead vocals and bass guitar, the touring band also features Soren Anderson (guitar), Jesper Bo Hansen (keyboards) and new drummer for the project Fernando Escobedo (drums).
This is the first time Glenn has performed a show solely of Deep Purple material since his last show with Purple at the Liverpool Empire on March 15th 1976. Not one to wallow in nostalgia, hence his extensive and varied career post-Purple, Glenn feels the time is right to acknowledge and pay homage to his past, his musical legacy, and, most importantly, to one of rock and roll’s most acclaimed, influential and successful rock bands.
