Live: Glenn Hughes / The Damn Truth

The Apex, Bury St Edmunds October 23, 2023

There was a quick return to East Anglia when the Voice of Rock rolled into Suffolk for a sell-out performance.

Photographer PAUL HAMPSON was there when The Damn Truth got the evening under way.

The four-piece from Montreal were in town ahead of a trip up the road to Norwich for a headline slot the following night.

The show came three days after the release of the psychedelic rockers’ latest single, I Just Gotta Let You Know.

Former Deep Purple man Glenn Hughes was touring as part of the 50th-anniversary celebration of the classic Burn album.

It followed an earlier appearance on the tour in Norwich back in July, with his UK dates split into two.

Burn was one of three albums released during the period when Hughes was in Purple, alongside Stormbringer and Come Taste The Band.

More then half the songs on Burn were in the set, with Highway Star the only song played that wasn’t from Purple’s Hughes era.
