Glenn Hughes is pleased to announce his UK tour dates for January and February 2017. Tickets for go on sale to the general public from 10am Friday 25th November. Special guests on all UK shows is Stone Broken.
The UK tour follows the release of Glenn’s 12th studio album, the critically acclaimed “Resonate”. Which has received rave reviews and reached #6 in the Official UK Rock Album Chart. The album includes the single “Heavy” featuring Chad Smith (Red Hot Chili Peppers) on drums. The album also features Soren Anderson (guitar), Pontus Engborg (drums) and Lachy Doley (keyboards). From album opener, “Heavy”, to the very last chords of the closer, “Long Time Gone”; “Resonate” is proving to be the contender for ‘Album of the Year’.
A true vocal and musical icon of our times, in the past couple of years Glenn has concentrated on his solo career. Sold out crowds were the order of the day, while touring non-stop throughout 2015 with shows in South America, Europe, UK, Japan and Singapore.
In 2015, the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame announced that Deep Purple (including MKIII), were to be inducted after several previous nominations over the years – a culmination of a 40+ years career which saw Glenn leave his indelible mark in several musical endeavours and bands including Trapeze, Deep Purple, Hughes/Thrall, his collaborations with Gary Moore, Black Sabbath’s Tony Iommi and most recently with Black Country Communion and California Breed.
“I am happy to announce my UK and European tour. My team have been hard at work to make this happen, so my band and I can perform on this tour to promote my new album Resonate. All love and see you down the front.”
