Glenn Hughes Announces First Full Deep Purple Shows In 40 Years

Glenn Hughes has announced that he will be playing full concerts featuring music from his former band Deep Purple during his upcoming tour of Australia and New Zealand this fall.

The shows will mark the first time in 40 years that Hughes will perform material from the iconic band since his final show with the group on March 15th, 1976 at the Empire Theatre in Liverpool.

Glenn shared his excitement about the special upcoming concerts, "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."

His touring band will also feature guitarist Jeff Kollman, drummer Pontus Engborg and keyboardist Lachy Doley. The tour is scheduled to kick off in Sydney on September 30th and wrap on October 2nd in Auckland.

Music lives on!

I've noticed orchestras still perform Beethoven....and he's been dead 190 years.

Wouldn't really interest me. Any Deep Purple music for me has to feature Gillan.
