GLENN HUGHES Announces First U.S. Leg Of 2018 'Classic Deep Purple Live' Tour

April 3, 2018

Glenn Hughes, 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 frontman for rock super group BLACK COUNTRY COMMUNION, has announced that he will perform DEEP PURPLE-only material with his "Classic Deep Purple Live" nationwide U.S. tour in August-September 2018.

The tour promises to be dynamic, a 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.

Comments Hughes: "I'm excited to be touring the 'Classic Deep Purple Live' in the U.S. late this summer. I first toured 'Classic Deep Purple Live' in Australia and New Zealand last year and it went down like a storm. We're also touring the show throughout South America in April, and international festivals throughout the summer. By the time we tour the U.S., then the U.K. in October, we'll be on fire."

As well as Glenn on lead vocals and bass guitar, the touring band also features Søren Andersen (guitar),Jesper Bo Hansen (keyboards) and Fer Escobedo (drums).

A second leg of the USA tour will added soon, with further shows throughout November and December.
