The Dead Daisies Kick Off 2021 With “Get Out Of The House” Tour

The Dead Daisies - 2021 'Get Out Of The House' Tour

You’ve all been cooped up for a while now and most of you won’t have been to a live show for a year!! So by Feb 3rd next year, it will definitely be time to Get Out Of The House and ROCK!!!

The Dead Daisies will kick off 2021 in style with a Pan-European Headline Tour through the theatres of the “old world” showcasing the bands new line-up and eager to perform their first new music for fans since 2018!

We can’t play for you in 2020 but, we are really looking forward to seeing you in 2021 for our Get Out Of The House Tour and playing as many stages across the planet as possible. Love is the answer & music is the healer, let’s rock n’ roll together.” – Glenn Hughes

With dates yet to be confirmed, the band will follow up with shows in the UK & Japan. They’ll then embark on a summer run throughout Europe combining arena and amphitheater shows playing with Judas Priest & Foreigner and at some of the most famous and coveted festivals such as Graspop in Belgium and Hellfest in France.

And much more is on the horizon: Fans in the USA, Canada, Australia and South America need not worry: The Dead Daisies will be coming for you in 2021 – you can count on it!!

With Rock & Roll Hall of Fame inductee Glenn Hughes (Deep Purple, Black Country Communion) joining the band, it’s now a leaner four-piece outfit that has brought a new urgency and vigour to their overall sound and vibe. With Deen Castronovo on the drums (Journey, Bad English, Hardline), the powerful and complimentary fretwork of guitar virtuoso Doug Aldrich (Whitesnake, Dio), and the solid rhythm guitar foundation of David Lowy (Mink, Red Phoenix), Glenn’s primal rhythms have supercharged the bands front line with rock solid bass grooves and unmatched vocal intensity.

The upcoming album – Holy Ground – was recorded by Producer Ben Grosse at La Fabrique Studio in the South of France and is slated for a January 2021 release to coincide with the Tour.

Glenn Hughes - 2017 UK/EUROPE Tour

GLENN HUGHES was recently inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame as part of the Mark III line up of DEEP PURPLE. He spent key years of his career as the beloved bassist and vocalist of the group, recording on the classic albums: Burn, Stormbringer, and Come Taste The Band. Hughes and other members of DEEP PURPLE were in attendance to receive the honor. The ceremony was recorded for television and received it’s broadcast premiere via HBO in April 2016.

Vocalist/bass guitarist/songwriter GLENN HUGHES is a true original. No other rock musician has carved such a distinctive style blending the finest elements of hard rock, soul and funk. Stevie Wonder once called Hughes his favorite white singer. The first important band Hughes was a member of that achieved notable success was TRAPEZE. In 1973, Hughes joined DEEP PURPLE. The trailblazing hard-rock legends had just weathered the departure of vocalist Ian Gillan and bass guitarist Roger Glover, but guitarist Ritchie Blackmore, keyboardist Jon Lord and drummer Ian Paice continued with the addition of Hughes and David Coverdale. Since 1992, Hughes has toured extensively in Europe, Japan and South America in support of solo albums, but more recently has been involved with award winning supergroups’, BLACK COUNTRY COMMUNION with guitar star Joe Bonamassa, keyboard player Derek Sherinian (Dream Theater) and drummer Jason Bonham, son of the late Led Zeppelin legend John Bonham and CALIFORNIA BREED, who also featured both Hughes and drummer Jason Bonham.

GLENN HUGHES Forced To Cancel UK/European Tour

GLENN HUGHES FORCED TO CANCEL UK/EUROPEAN TOUR AFTER CO-HEADLINER LIVING COLOUR PULLS OUT AND BOOKS A CONFLICTING RUN FOR THE SAME DATES

Promoters Left With No Choice But To Refund All Tickets For Previously Announced Dates

Hughes’ New Solo Album Resonate Scheduled For Release On November 4th Via Frontiers Music SRL

Glenn Hughes is forced to cancel his UK/European tour today after the co-headliner Living Colour booked a conflicting support slot on Alter Bridge‘s European tour. New management for Living Colour knowingly booked them onto the Alter Bridge tour although they were already confirmed for the Glenn Hughes co-headline tour, which had been on sale since April. Alter Bridge and Glenn Hughes have been long-time friends and neither Alter Bridge, their management and agents or even Living Colour‘s agent TKO were aware that this was taking place.

Glenn Hughes was planning on touring Europe in support of his upcoming solo album, Resonate. When word got to promoters that Living Colour were no longer planning to perform on the co-headline dates, they were forced to refund all tickets. All ticket holders of Glenn Hughes‘ UK/European tour will be offered refunds at the point of purchase and can call the venues for more information.

“I am saddened and disappointed that I will not be able to perform for my UK and European fans as I had originally intended. When I partnered with Living Colour to do this tour, I thought we would be able to make something special happen at these shows. Unfortunately, an undermining manager got involved and in turn ruined what would have been an amazing tour. I can’t wait to get back to the UK and Europe to bring the new songs of Resonate to my fans overseas,” explains Glenn Hughes.

Glenn Hughes‘ new solo album, Resonate, has been receiving critical acclaim from media and fans alike. The album will be available in two configurations: regular cd and deluxe edition including one bonus track and DVD. 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). A vinyl release will be made available via the Frontiers’ label partners Soulfood Music. The album is available for pre-order via Amazon (http://radi.al/ResonateAmazon), iTunes (http://radi.al/ResonateiTunes) and Google Play (http://radi.al/ResonateGooglePlay). The single “Heavy” is also available on Spotify at http://radi.al/ResonateSpotify with the full album streaming on release date. Resonate was produced by Glenn Hughes & Soren Andersen.

Glenn Hughes, the legendary “Voice Of Rock,” has been a fixture in the music industry for over 35 years. In that time, he has become one of the most-respected and influential performers through his work in Trapeze, Deep Purple, Black Sabbath, Black Country Communion as well as his solo career.

Stevie Wonder once called Hughes his favorite white singer. The first important band Hughes was a member of that achieved notable success was TRAPEZE. In 1973, Hughes joined DEEP PURPLE.

The New York rock band LIVING COLOUR, with its hard-hitting songs and expert musicianship, had all the ingredients for success when it first approached the music industry. Yet record labels didn’t know what to do with the band, for the simple reason that all four of its members were black.

Formed in 1984, led by guitarist Vernon Reid, with Corey Glover (vocals), Will Calhoun (drums) and Doug Wimbish (bass), the band’s music is a creative fusion influenced by free jazz, funk, hard rock and heavy metal. After months of touring and a little push from MTV, their second single from Vivid, ‘Cult of Personality‘ helped propel LIVING COLOUR into the mainstream along with an opening slot for the Rolling Stones Steel Wheels tour, garnering their first Grammy in 1989 for ‘Best Hard Rock Performance’. Other songs from Vivid that fared well on radio and MTV were ‘Glamour Boys,’ which became a Top 40 hit, ’Open Letter (to a Landlord),’ and ‘Funny Vibe,’ a song about racism, which included a guest appearance by the rap group Public Enemy.

Their sophomore effort 1990’s Time’s Up including the alt-rock classic ‘Type’, bluesy R&B ‘Love Rears Its Ugly Head’, and the funky ‘Elvis Is Dead’, rewarded the band with their second Grammy, spearheading a wave of eclectic and critically acclaimed bands who challenged racial conventions. With their diverse range in musical style, they fit perfectly on the inaugural Lollapalooza tour. 1993’s Stain, showed a darker, heavier side of the band with songs like ‘Go Away‘ and ‘Leave It Alone‘. After a brief break in 1995, the band got back together to tour, and record 2003’s Collide0scope and 2009’s The Chair In The Doorway.

The impetus of LIVING COLOUR’s new album, Shade originated from a centennial performance of Robert Johnson’sPreachin’ Blues’ at the legendary Apollo Theatre in New York City. Shade, to be released in the fall of 2016, is “the sound of a band coming to terms with its shadows and light,” as described by Vernon Reid.  “From the blue pulpit of Robert Johnson to the mean red streets of Brooklyn… Shade is the next chapter of a unique American journey.” Corey Glover portrays Shade as an “homage to the blues” that links the band to their disparate roots and includes a cover of Notorious B.I.G.’sWho Shot Ya?’ which links to current social issues important to the LIVING COLOUR ethos.

GLENN HUGHES announces DOUG ALDRICH as guitarist for European tour

Following on from his recent announcement of a 2015 Solo Tour in Europe, GLENN HUGHES is excited to announce that DOUG ALDRICH (Revolution Saints & formerly Whitesnake, Dio) will join his Solo band as guitar player. Alongside Aldrich will be powerhouse Swedish drummer, PONTUS ENGBORG, with Hughes on bass & vocals, completing the Trio.

Commenting on the addition of DOUG ALDRICH to his Solo band, Hughes says:

Glenn HughesMy friendship with Doug started when he was playing with my dear friend, Ronnie Dio. Ronnie would always introduce me to his bandmates who were always family.

So, on a fateful night in May 2010, I was playing at a festival in Bologna, Italy. I asked Doug if he would like to join me to play a couple of Deep Purple songs. We went into my dressing room and went over the arrangements of the songs, and we were good to go. I introduced Doug to the stage, and we performed for the audience. It felt natural & full of energy. Doug is a world class guitar player and bona fide Rock Star.

I was impressed with Doug’s demeanor, both on and off the stage, hard-working, kind and loving, all the qualities that one needs to fulfill a fruitful life.

Our friendship continued as Doug joined Whitesnake, and I was happy knowing that my brother David Coverdale, would nurture Doug’s talent, and give him the love to share with ROCK fans globally.

Hughes continues:

On the fifth anniversary of Ronnie’s passing, I connected with Doug again, and we chose to talk and remember how much we loved and missed him. We both asked what we were doing musically, and then out of the blue I asked him if he would like to come and play with me and do some Shows.

The answer was… I’m in!

We are both very excited to bring the love to ROCK fans, and carry the message that ROCK is alive. For me, it’s time to get back onstage, it’s where I belong… see you soon!

Excited at joining Hughes’ Solo band for the 2015 Tour, guitarist DOUG ALDRICH added:

Glenn and I have been friends for years. I met him through the Dio camp as we were both very close to Ronnie.

Doug Aldrich

We had played live together several times, first in Bologna, Italy for the Ultimate Guitar Festival, and most recently at the Jim Marshall 50 Year Memorial Concert at Wembley Arena in London.

I’ve had a huge respect for what he has accomplished, but to play with him was astonishingly cool.

So cut to a few days ago.

I was remembering Ronnie James Dio on the anniversary of his passing and posted on my Facebook Page about that night 5 years earlier in Bologna. I remember Glenn dedicating “Long Live Rock ‘n’ Roll“, to Ronnie. It was right out of the blue and little did we know RJD would pass the next day.

Glenn and I were both pallbearers at the funeral.

Glenn heard about the Facebook post and gave me a call, also asking if I was up for a little jamming… I said YES for sure I was!!

We both agreed, it was long overdue to do a run of dates together.

Glenn had dates and I signed on!

I’m very excited about it all. If you hear of Glenn in town… GO see him cause I’ll be there too!!

Swedish drummer PONTUS ENGBORG has been in the Glenn Hughes band since 2010.

In 2010 Engborg was asked to join the Glenn Hughes band. On July 17th 2010 Engborg and Hughes met in Serbia. Without no rehearsal Pontus was able to perform with Glenn Hughes and his GH band for 21,000 people. Engborg has been a part of the Glenn Hughes band ever since.

When Pontus isn’t touring the world with Glenn Hughes, he frequently tours/works with artists such as:

Bill Champlin (Formally of the band Chicago)
Eric Martin (Mr Big)
Joe Lynn Turner (ex Deep Purple/Rainbow)
Graham Bonnet (ex Rainbow)
Steve Augeri (ex Journey)
Marco Mendoza (ex Whitesnake)
Bobby Kimball (ex Toto)
Robin Beck

Engborg has also toured with the late Fergie Fredriksen (ex Toto) and Jimi Jamison (Survivor) and many more.

Pontus Engborg is endorsed by Paiste Cymbals, Evans Drumheads and Promark Drumsticks.

Engborg on touring again with GLENN HUGHES adds:
