Glenn Hughes has announced his UK tour dates for January and February 2017.  Special guests on all shows is Stone Broken.

The tour follows the release of Glenn’’s 12th studio album “”Resonate,”” which has received across-the-board 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 destined to end up on many ‘Album of the Year’.

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+ year 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 featuring Joe Bonamassa and with California Breed.
