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, is pleased to announce, ‘Glenn Hughes Performs Classic Deep Purple Live
– Celebrating the 50th Anniversary of the album BURN’.

‘It was 50 years ago, in the summer of 1973, that the BURN album by Deep Purple was written at
Clearwell castle in the Forest of Dean Gloucestershire,” reminisces Glenn. “It was recorded in October
in Montreux, Switzerland.”

Continues Hughes, “We all became one in this centuries old castle in the UK countryside, it felt like
Deep were a new band, with David (Coverdale) and I as new members, we couldn’t wait to start working
on new song. 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, andmagic happened.”

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