The eight date UK 2019 tour promises to be a dynamic, turn-back-the-clocks, 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 rock and roll groups.
I'm excited to be touring the "Classic Deep Purple Live" in the UK in May 2019. I first toured Classic Deep Purple Live in Australia and New Zealand in 2017 and it went down like a storm. We’re currently touring a first set of dates in the UK and are looking forward for a second round in 2019.
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.
