Glenn Hughes, former bassist/vocalist with Deep Purple and current frontman for rock super group Black Country Communion, has announced that he is bringing his Classic Deep Purple Live tour to North America during August and September 2018.
As uDiscover Music previously reported, Hughes will be then taking the tour to the UK and Europe during the autumn. It is believed a second US leg will be added soon, with further shows being lined up for November and December.
Hughes promises his ‘Classic Deep Purple Live Tour’ will be a dynamic, turn-back-the-clocks, two-hour live extravaganza homage to his tenure in MK 3 and MK 4 incarnations of Deep Purple: one of the most seminal and influential of all 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 US, then the UK in October, we’ll be on fire.”
Ian addition to Hughes on lead vocals and bass guitar, the touring band also features Søren Andersen (guitar), Jesper Bo Hansen (keyboards) and Fer Escobedo (drums).
