While former Deep Purple bass player Glenn Hughes is touring Australia with his Classic Deep Purple Live show for the very first time, Purple fans are being treated to some rare tracks.

The Hughes setlist revolves around his three albums with the band ‘Burn’, ‘Stormbringer’ and ‘Come Taste The Band’. Two songs ‘This Time Around’ and ‘Sail Away’ from ‘Come Taste The Band’ were rarely played by Deep Purple. ‘Holy Man’ from ‘Stormbringer’ was never performed live by Deep Purple.

For Glenn Hughes, this is his first time performing a complete set of Deep Purple songs since leaving the band in 1976.
