On the announcement of his new shows in the USA, Glenn comments:
I am thrilled to announce that I will be on tour in the USA. My first leg will start on March 2 thru March 26.
On the agenda for the whole of 2016 is all about live shows, I have not done an extensive tour in quite some time and I feel now is the appropriate time, as my fan base is growing.
We have completed a sold out South American tour, and now playing across Europe.
Happy to announce that Doug Aldrich, Ex Whitesnake and Dio guitarist will be by my side. On drums will be my drummer of 8 years, Pontus Engborg, a powerhouse.
This is a Rock Show, my Power Trio, my career started in a trio, that band was Trapeze, who had success in the USA prior to my joining Deep Purple.
Here we go... see you down the front!
