Says Glenn, “I’m thrilled to be coming over to tour the UK and Europe this month and February. My band will now be a four piece. On guitar is Søren Andersen, on drums Pontus Engborg, and on keyboards Jay Boe. Song selections will be a mix from my new album Resonate, and from my well of historic songs through the decades. This tour is all about ROCK and what it means to us all, including my band, and to my fans and friends. Let’s get 2017 going with a killer night for ROCK lovers, movers and shakers. I’m in. Let’s go! See you down the front!”
Special guests on all UK shows will be Stone Broken.
“Resonate” is available in two configurations: regular cd and deluxe edition including one bonus track and DVD. Vinyl release is available via the Frontiers’ label partners Soulfood Music. The Deluxe Edition includes the bonus track “Nothing’s The Same” plus a bonus DVD disc featuring the “Making of” the album documentary – “Heavy” (video) and “Long Time Gone” (video).
On his January and February 2017 UK tour, Hughes will perform a collection of music from his extensive career, including selections from Trapeze, Deep Purple, Hughes/Thrall and Black Country Communion as well as solo material from the new album “Resonate” Produced by Glenn Hughes & Soren Andersen
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.
2016 proved to be Glenn’s busiest year yet. With summer festivals and solo shows in the USA, UK and Europe. With Resonate, Glenn released his first solo album in over eight years. Resonate is truly a triumphant return to form for The Voice of Rock.
A true vocal and musical icon of our times, in the past couple of years Glenn concentrated again 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. No other rock musician has carved such a distinctive style blending the finest elements of hard rock, soul and funk. That astonishing voice is Hughes’ calling card and the new album, “Resonate” shines as a true Glenn Hughes landmark release.
From album opener, “Heavy“, to the very last chords of the closer, “Long Time Gone“, it promises to be a contender for ‘Album of the Year’. It features his live solo band members, Soren Andersen (guitars and co-producer), Pontus Engborg (drums) and newcomer to his band, Lachy Doley (keyboards), in addition to long-time friend and drummer, Chad Smith (of Red Hot Chili Peppers), who joined them in the studio for the opening and closing numbers. It might well be the most heavy sounding of his solo albums, but as is his trademark, musical diversity shines through and as Glenn commented upon completion of the new recording, “this album is the first kind of a complete Glenn Hughes album”.
