Glenn Hughes will return to Australia to play ‘Classic Deep Purple Live’ in September.
Glenn left Deep Purple in 1975 but was there for one of the band’s greatest albums ‘Burn’.
“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.
“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.”
