    I went to their concert and loved it, but was disappointed that they didn't play Burn in Seattle. I came to check YouTube to see when was the last time they played it live and couldn't find anything over the last 15+ years. Is it true that they haven't played Burn for a long time? If so anyone knows why?

    Glenn Hughes still does. And probably will if Black Country Communion ever does any more shows if that helps

    They don't play any song from albums that sung Coverdale and Hughes afaik.

    Same happened to me when I saw them live in 2003.

    Never got Deep Purple, kids at school were split, those with the ‘hip’, (then ‘in’) crowd, were into them, Deep Purple In Rock, others of us, my camp, were into jazz, CCR Glen Miller and, how ‘square’, the singles charts.

    Glenn just got into Dead Daisies and I think BCC is set to hit the studio in 2020 so I'm not sure what his solo schedule looks like

    I was born in 1986 so, fair to say I missed all the ins and outs. I was introduced to a lot at once: Zepp, Purple, Hendrix, The Police, Santana, Jethro, CSNY, Clapton, and all by one person I consider my musical mentor lol.

    Nice. I forgot about that crazy sounding keyboard. I wore a few deep grooves in some Deep Purple vinyl. Probably wore out a needle or two as well.

    The DVD is worth a watch. I never realized how good a drummer Jason is until I heard their second album

    This seems like the most logical answer.

    They don't play it because Ian Gillian is a twit.

    Yup, Whitesnake still plays “Burn” live too, so basically both of the original singers still perform it.

    As someone else already mentioned, the current Deep Purple lineup doesn’t play any of the Coverdale/Hughes era songs.
