Glenn Hughes returns to NYC for two nights at The Iridium to deliver “Classic Deep Purple Live”.
Well how about that my friends, it appears as though we’ve once again arrived at the time where the Instagram “Top Nine” images are tabulated and that means you get to enjoy them as well. Over the course of 2018, I really was enjoying the use of Instagram as a social networking tool and I’m fairly certain that I used it a lot more than any of the other socials combined. The rundown will come after the image below so please take a gander. I figured that I’d offer up some background on them all.
About These Visuals: Starting from the top left hand corner we’ve got the band Paramore which is fronted by Hayley Williams and right next to that is the ominious Doyle Wolfgang von Frankenstein and his own parmour Alissa White-Gluz of Arch Enemy. A lot of you longer terms website readers will likely remember Alissa from The Agonist. Closing up the first row is Black Veil Brides singer Andy Black who was showing off a brand new comic graphic novel at the Last Rites Gallery. I’m not sure why they decided to cut off artist Eryk Donovan but that is the app for you. Sorry Eryk. The second row was from a great SiriusXM Town Hall with the legendary Judas Priest and that is the lads and myself post their interview at the station. It’s always great to say hello to The Priest and of course to support their live shows. The Brits are followed next by two images of the lovely and talented Riki “Riddle” Lecotey who is a cosplayer of some reknown. They were taken from The BoroughCon event and we just love her amazing designs. Our last row is the also legendary Glenn Hughes who was delivering a solo tour that celebrated his Deep Purple years. This row is completed by a visual from the Ghost Press Conference that was held by Papa Nihil and Sister Imperator and the great Zakk Wylde from Black Label Society and Ozzy Osbourne during his special appearance at the “Fear The Riff” Expo in Brooklyn. Good times. As you can see, the collage shows that we recieved 25.8K likes for the sum total of our 6,716 posted images. Though we’ve gone up over 1K followers to 1,419 the sum-total likes dropped a chunk in comparison to last year. I think this was based on our flipping between personal and business accounts to get some standings but in the business account we saw less people coming aboard much like the Facebook Official Page. Since Facebook owns Instagram a lot of the same algorithm stuff goes on and they want you to pay for ads which I am NOT going to do.

PiercingMetal Thoughts: Though I’ve been a fan of this legendary musical figure quite a few years I’ve only ever caught him in concert a couple of times. Once was only a few short years ago and the other….well, let’s just say my younger readers weren’t even ideas yet but I digress. It’s going to be interesting to see him doing all these classic tunes as a showcase and to my knowledge he has never before toured a complete set of Deep Purple music. Let’s hope a recording of this is done as well since that would go over like gangbusters. As I’ve a mountain of “to do” in front of me and the website’s anniversary is tomorrow I am going to take my leave with a simple inquiry; What do you think about this tour? Will you attend? Will you go a couple of times? Fill me in down in the comments below.
