Glenn Hughes has revealed that he’ll be bringing his Classic Deep Purple Live tour to the UK later this year.
The vocalist and bassist was a member of the Mk. III and IV Deep Purple line-ups – and he will be playing a set consisting exclusively of Purple material across the UK in October.
The UK dates are set to kick off on 2 October at Bristol’s Academy and wrap up at London’s Koko on 15 October.
Hughes says of the trek: “I’m excited to be touring the Classic Deep Purple Live in the UK this October. 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 festivals throughout the summer. By the time we tour the UK in October, we’ll be on fire.”
Tickets for the shows will go on sale of Friday, 23 February 23, via The Gig Cartel.
