Glenn Hughes announces 2019 Classic Deep Purple Live UK tour

Glenn Hughes will exclusively present material from his former band on his “Glenn Hughes Performs Classic Deep Purple Live” UK tour next spring.

The two-week run will see the singer/bassist deliver a two-hour live homage to his tenure in Deep Purple MK 3 and MK 4.

Currently on the road in the UK this week and next as part of a fall European run, Hughes will return to his homeland in May 2019 for another 8-show series that will begin in Holmfirth on May 14.

"I'm excited to be touring the Classic Deep Purple Live in the UK in May 2019,” says Hughes. “I first toured Classic Deep Purple Live in Australia and New Zealand last year and it went down like a storm. We’re currently touring a first set of dates in the UK and are looking forward for a second round in 2019.”

Planet Rock has launched a 48-hour pre-sale here ahead of general public tickets going on sale Friday, October 5 via

Prior to the UK tour, Hughes will play a pair of newly-announced a pair of shows at The Iridium in New York City in April, with ticket details available at his website.

Hughes and the early lineups of Deep Purple were inducted into the 2016 Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame at a ceremony in New York in 2016 alongside fellow honorees Cheap Trick, Steve Miller, Chicago and N.W.A.
