The bassist and singer Glenn Hughes (Deep Purple, Black Sabbath and more) is touring around the world celebrating the anniversary of the release of the classic Purple album “Burn” (1974). He already toured across the United States in 2023 but he now announced new 2024 tour dates for the country. The shows will happen next February, March and April. On the tour he will have as special guest on selected dates the bands Bad Marriage and Ennuf Znnuf.
Hughes recently revealed in an interview with Iron City Rocks that he will finally record a new solo album next year. The most recent one is “Resonate” but since that one he released 3 albums with the supergroup The Dead Daises.
“I am an artist that must make new music. I mean, I insist — I hate that word ‘insist’, but every year I find myself with a new paint board of new songs. I’m getting ready next year, by the way — I am gonna do another Glenn album next year, the first one in nine years, ’cause it’s time to do it.”
About his inspiration when writing a song, he said: “I don’t write about politics. I write about the human condition. I write about how are we feeling, what are we going through, are we going to get through this — you know, acceptance, staying in the present moment. This is the big thing for me. People call it woke, awakening, if you will… For me, it’s all about staying present in this moment right now, and I’m writing about that,” Glenn Hughes said.
I'm a Brazilian journalist who always loved Classic Rock and Heavy Metal music. That passion inspired me to create Rock and Roll Garage over 6 years ago. Music has always been a part of my life, helping me through tough times and being a support to celebrate the good ones. When I became a journalist, I knew I wanted to write about my passions. After graduating in journalism from the Pontifical Catholic University of Minas Gerais, I pursued a postgraduate degree in digital communication at the same institution. The studies and experience in the field helped me improve the website and always bring the best of classic rock to the world! MTB: 0021377/MG
