Well, being Purple Revolver, it would be somewhat remiss not to announce the rescheduled tour dates of former Deep Purple megastar Glenn Hughes and, also, that he is about to release his GIGANTICALLY acclaimed album Resonate on Purple Vinyl.

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!”

On Friday 4th November 2016, Frontiers Music Srl released the critically acclaimed 12th original Glenn Hughes album Resonate. 2016 is 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.

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.

Glenn’s 12th studio album, and his first album in eight years, Resonate was released on 4th November 2016 to great critical acclaim and hit #6 in the Official UK Rock Album Chart. The album is available two configurations: regular CD and deluxe edition including one bonus track and DVD. Vinyl release is available via the Frontiers’ label partners Soulfood Music.

There is also a special purple vinyl edition available from

The Deluxe Edition includes the bonus track “Nothing’s The Same” plus a bonus DVD disc featuring the “Making of” the album documentary – “Heavy” (song video) and “Long Time Gone” (song video).
