Glenn Hughes performs Classic Deep Purple Live on Thursday 28th November 2019
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 frontman for rock supergroup Black Country Communion, is pleased to announce that he will be performing Deep Purple ONLY material on his hotly anticipated nationwide UK tour in November 2019.
Expect a dynamic, turn-back-the-clock, two-hour live extravaganza homage to his tenure in MK 3 and MK 4 incarnations of Deep Purple – one of music history’s most seminal and influential groups.
‘I’m excited to be playing classic Deep Purple live in the UK this November. I first toured this show in Australia and New Zealand last year and it went down a storm. We’re also touring the show throughout South America in April, and festivals throughout the summer. By the time we get to the UK , we’ll be on fire!’
Taking a page and inspiration from the Blackmore/Coverdale/Hughes/Lord/Paice Deep Purple MK 3 California Jam and Made in Europe era, the upcoming live show features the Purple classics Burn, Stormbringer, Might Just Take Your Life and Mistreated amongst others, plus tracks previously never performed live by the original MK 3 line-up.
Classic material from the Tommy Bolin MK 4 period is also featured, including Getting’ Tighter – Hughes’ funk rock extravaganza extraordinaire, plus the brooding Coverdale /Hughes masterpiece You Keep on Moving.
Deep Purple MK 2 hits Highway Star and Smoke on the Water are also featured, because, as Glenn points out, ‘’I did play both these numbers during my time with Purple and they were mainstays of the live set when I was in the band. As my manager pointed out to me, the first time Smoke on The Water was ever played live at Madison Square Garden was when David and I were in the band in 1974. I love singing Highway Star, too.’
‘I can still sing the songs, in some ways even better than I did in the 70’s’ says Glenn. I can still perform them with the same energy that was on the stage back then, too. I feel that the time is right. It’s fun to get back into character of my days with Purple. I’m looking back at my life and I want to remember the good stuff. I’m incredibly excited to perform these songs, as they helped define the genre. I can assure you, this new show is going to blow your mind!’
