“The Voice Of Rock” Glenn Hughes To Continue “Classic Deep Purple Live” Tour

Upon the recent completion of a successful South American and European festival tour, rock and roll legend Glenn Hughes is bringing the Classic Hits of Deep Purple Live tour to the United States. The 18-city trek kicks off on August 25th in Westbury, NY at the NYCB Theatre and travels around the Northeast before wrapping up in Tarrytown, NY on September 22nd. The tour will make stops in Asbury Park, NJ; Lancaster, PA; Cleveland, OH; and Boston, MA to name a few. The “Voice of Rock” will be performing various hits and deep cuts from the illustrious Deep Purple catalog including “Burn,” “Stormbringer,” “Sail Away” and “Smoke On The Water” among other rock classics. Glenn will be focusing on arrangements from the live albums – not studio recordings – for these songs, giving fans even more insight as to what it was like seeing a Deep Purple show during the 1970’s. Once the US run wraps at the end of September, Glenn Hughes will return to Europe to continue to bring his interpretation of the legendary music of Deep Purple to the fans worldwide.  All tour dates, VIP packages and ticket info can be found at www.glennhughes.com.

At a recent stop in Wales, UK; Alter Bridge frontman and Slash vocalist Myles Kennedy dropped in on the show. Hughes and company alongside Kennedy on guitar and vocals performed a raucous version of the Deep Purple classic “Highway Star.” A fan video of that performance can be seen here: https://tinyurl.com/GHMKHighwayStar.

No stranger to collaborations, Glenn Hughes also collaborated with country music icon Eric Church at a concert last year that has been immortalized on Eric Church’s 61 Days In Church release.
