Glenn Hughes makes a quick return to East Anglia later this month with a sold-out show as he continues to mark the 50th anniversary of classic Deep Purple album Burn.

The former Purple bassist and singer will be at The Apex, Bury St Edmunds, on Monday, October 23.

Hughes – whose band includes Soren Andersen on guitar, keyboardist Bob Fridzema and Ash Sheehan on drums – recently put on a cracking set in Norwich ahead of his headline slot at the inaugural Maid Of Stone festival.

The set is likely to be dominated by songs off Burn, one of the three Purple albums Hughes was on alongside Stormbringer and Come Taste The Band.

Support will come from The Damn Truth, who’ll be back at The Waterfront the following night (Tuesday, October 24) following their own brilliant performance there last year.
