Glenn Hughes has announced that he will be returning to the UK in November with more “Classic Deep Purple Live” nationwide tour dates.
Last week Glenn Hughes needed to re-schedule dates of his May 2019 UK Tour due to health issues. 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 also announce a new set of dates in November alongside the re-scheduled ones.
The re-scheduled dates include Salisbury, Norwich, Holmfirth and Birmingham with additional dates in Bexhill, Cambridge, Cheltenham, Aberdeen, Inverness and Middlesbrough.
“I’m excited to return to touring “Classic Deep Purple Live” in the UK in November 2019,” says Glenn. “I first toured Classic Deep Purple Live in Australia and New Zealand last year and it went down a storm. We are looking forward for a second round in the UK in November.”
Deep Purple took a quantum leap when the then 20-year-old Glenn Hughes was seconded from British funk-rock outfit Trapeze in mid-1973. As bassist and co-vocalist (with David Coverdale), he helped steer the legendary rock group in the progressive direction of ‘Burn’ (1974), ‘Stormbringer’ (1974) and ‘Come Taste the Band’ (1975), while touring the world for three years.
His solo debut album ‘Play Me Out’ (1977) preceded later albums with Black Sabbath and Gary Moore. The last 25 years have seen a rush of solo work and collaborations for the ‘Voice of Rock’ including mega hit America: What Time Is Love? with the KLF in 1992, and four critically acclaimed top selling studio albums released between 2010 and 2018 with rock super group Black Country Communion featuring Joe Bonamassa, Jason Bonham and Derek Sherinian. Glenn was also inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2016 along with other members of Deep Purple.
