GLENN HUGHES PERFORMS CLASSIC DEEP PURPLE LIVE IN CONCERT
Glenn Hughes played his last concert with Deep Purple on March 15, 1976, at Liverpool's Empire Theatre. On that night, the UK bassist and vocalist walked away from one of history's truly game-changing rock phenomena and never looked back — until now.
For the first time in 40 years, NZ fans will witness Glenn Hughes – The Voice of Rock, and one of the finest hard rock singer/ musicians of his generation fronting a hand-picked band live in concert, as he revisits some of Deep Purple's all-time greatest songs with epic rock concert production.
"Most Purple fans rank ‘Burn’ and ‘Stormbringer’ among the greatest albums the band ever made, in any incarnation," Glenn says. "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.
"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 have a feeling they’re going to add up to a pretty incredible show."
Glenn was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame last year along with his other Deep Purple bandmates.
With one of the heaviest repertoires known to rock, and sound and lighting production values befitting the legend, Glenn Hughes' Classic Deep Purple shows are destined to write a new page in rock history.
