Never miss another 'Deep Purple' show
The Long Goodbye Tour: Deep Purple, Europe, Cats In Space
This will be the chance to see Rock n Roll Hall of Fame inductees, Deep Purple, one of the most iconic bands ever, in support of their brand new studio album ‘inFinite’ which is released by earMusic early in 2017, preceded by the first single out January 20th.
Ian Gillan, Roger Glover, Ian Paice, Steve Morse and Don Airey, Mark VIII of the band, continue to travel the scope of hard rock - the textures and nuances of recent works are anything but thudding retreads. If you set a random play setting for the band’s entire catalogue, the result is one of the finest musical outputs to grace rock music.
The latter-year Purple has moved progressively into new areas, piquing fans’ interest who were not born when the mighty Purple machine ruled the music world’s money trees. Their holy grail of ‘In Rock’ (1970) ‘Machine Head’ (1972) and ‘Made In Japan’ released in 1973 catapulted Deep Purple to the top in concert grosses and album sales around the world, with track ‘Smoke On The Water’ ascending to mega-status.

Deep Purple have emerged as a true institution of the British hard rock community. Formed in England in 1968, and releasing their debut album that year, the band have sold over 100 million albums worldwide. Iconic hits include 'Smoke On The Water', 'Highway Star', 'Space Truckin'', 'Hush' and 'My Woman From Tokyo', with albums such as Fireball, Machine Head and Made in Japan remaining classics decades after their release. Surviving almost limitless line-up changes, the current line-up - Ian Gillan, Roger Glover, Ian Paice, Steve Morse and Don Airey - continues to release ground-breaking, earth-shattering rock of the highest calibre.
