Glenn comments:

It was 50 years ago, in the Summer of 1973, that the BURN album by Deep Purple was written at Clearwell castle in The Forrest of Dean, Gloucestershire

Reminisces Glenn…

It was recorded in October 1973 in Montreux, Switzerland.

Continues Hughes:

We all became one in this centuries old castle in the UK countryside, it felt like Deep Purple were a new band, with David (Coverdale) and I as new members, we couldn’t wait to start working on new songs. The atmosphere was electric, in such amazing surroundings.

All the songs on BURN were written in the crypt/dungeon, underneath the great hall. We worked on a new song every day, and we were in the flow. Musically we would play, and work out ideas, and David and I would come up with vocal melodies that would later have lyrics. I remember it like it was yesterday.

As you could imagine, Ritchie Blackmore was in full prankster mode, Jon had warned me, and he rigged my room one night with a speaker that was hidden, and had ghostly voices delivered to my bedside.

The title track was the last song to be written. We came back from the pub, and went down into the crypt, and magic happened.

Concludes Hughes:

It’s time to celebrate BURN, and I’m really looking forward to seeing you.

Glenn’s management has been unsuccessful in reaching any solution with the Promoter and has reluctantly decided that the tour will have to be rescheduled into 2021 with a new South American partner.

Management are confident of securing a new tour period and will have news of this soon.

I’m sorry that my fans won’t get to see me this Fall but I will be back to my beloved South America very soon.

Peace and Love.

GLENN HUGHES Announces CLASSIC DEEP PURPLE LIVE In UK 2019

Just before starting his “GLENN HUGHES PERFORMS CLASSIC DEEP PURPLE LIVE” 2018 UK Tour, Glenn Hughes, the former bassist and singer of Deep Purple, known to millions as the ‘Voice of Rock‘, Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee, and the current front man for rock super group Black Country Communion, announces a new set of UK tour dates for 2019.

MAY 2019

14th Picturedrome – Holmfirth, UK
15th The Queen’s Hall – Edinburgh, UK
17th O2 Institute – Birmingham, UK
18th UEA LCR – Norwich, UK
20th The Alban Arena – St. Albans, UK

24th Rock City – Nottingham, UK

Planet Rock will start a 48-hour pre-sale on Wednesday October 3rd via www.planetrocktickets.co.uk and tickets will go on general sale on Friday October 5th via www.thegigcartel.com.

The eight date UK 2019 tour promises to 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 music history’s most seminal and influential rock and roll groups.

Says Hughes:

I’m excited to be touring the “Classic Deep Purple Live” in the UK in May 2019. I first toured Classic Deep Purple Live in Australia and New Zealand in 2017 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.

Deep Purple took a quantum leap when the then 20-year-old Glenn Hughes was seconded from British funk-rock outfit Trapeze in mid-1973. As bassist and co-vocalist (with David Coverdale), he helped steer the legendary rock group in the progressive direction of Burn (1974), Stormbringer (1974) and Come Taste the Band (1975), while touring the world for three years.
