GLENN HUGHES PLAYS PURPLE

Glenn Hughes will play a set consisted exclusively from Deep Purple material on his forthcoming tour in Australia and New Zealand this fall. "Most Purple fans rank 'Burn' and 'Stormbringer' among the greatest albums the band ever made, in any incarnation” says Hughes. "Over that Mk III period, we were also performing Mk II classics like 'Smoke On The Water' and 'Highway Star' every night on massive world tours. My lasting memories with Deep Purple in Australia, was, of course, the Sunbury Music Festival in '75. After so much sunshine, came the rain — a little prophetic with us performing 'Stormbringer'. My God, the mud! What mayhem, but the crowds seemed to have a great time. We sure did. I'm incredibly excited to get out there and play tracks like 'Burn', 'Mistreated', 'Stormbringer' and 'Getting Tighter', as well as some of those older songs that helped define the genre. With this band, I can assure you of a concert that’ll blow your mind. Glenn Hughes’ band includes Jeff Kollman (guitar), Lachy Doley (keyboards) and Pontus Engborg (drums). Note that the last time Hughes ever played with Purple was on March 15th 1976 in Liverpool… for this show there is a promo video that you can watch below…
