Glenn Hughes

Former Deep Purple bassist and vocalist Glenn Hughes is postponing his upcoming UK tour due to illness. A press release states the cause of the postponement will be treated and he should be touring again next month.

“He needs to be treated for an illness that while not life-threatening, must be dealt with immediately in order for it to not become a serious problem,” it states. “He is expected to make a full recovery and be back on the road in June.”

The tour, dubbed “Glenn Hughes Performs Classic Deep Purple,” was scheduled to begin at the Holmfirth Picturedrome on May 14th. Hughes began the retrospective tour last year year and just wrapped up a U.S. leg. Check out this live take of “Burn” from 2018:
