Deep Purple tickets - Deep Purple tour dates

Deep Purple Schedule

Known to be one of the hardest touring bands on the planet, Deep Purple's Rapture of the Deep Tour slotted at No. 6 when Planet Rock listeners voted for them in the concert tour of the year category. The band stands among the trailblazers of heavy metal and modern rock even though their format has evolved over the years. Together with Black Sabbath and Led Zeppelin, Deep Purple has often been referenced as the "unholy trinity of British hard rock and heavy metal in the early to mid-seventies."

This iconic band still performs today and are scheduled to play venues like the Casino Rama in Rama, Ontario; the Pacific Amphitheater in Costa Mesa, California; Hard Rock Live in Orlando, Florida; and more.

Deep Purple Background

Established in Hertford in 1968, Deep Purple's original name was Roundabout. The original members included Jon Lord, Ian Paice, Ritchie Blackmore, Nick Simper and Rod Evans.

The band's first album, Shades of Deep Purple, arrived in the summer of 1968. The album didn't draw interest in the U.K. but on American soil, they scored a Top 5 hit with "Hush." The albums The Book of Taliesyn (1968) and Deep Purple (1969) arrived afterwards, but as the band's aspirations grew, their American label crumpled. Simper and Evans exited the band, and Roger Glover and Ian Gillan filled in, marking the first of many lineup changes to transpire.

The advent of 1970 brought their album In Rock, which served as the hallmark of the group's commercially successful period. It yielded the hits "Child In Time," "Speed King" and "Into The Fire." "Black Night" followed, which settled in the Top 10 slot in the U.K. After the triumphs of their albums In Rock and Fireball (1971), the band made the decision to cut their next album at The Casino in Montreux in Switzerland. Unfortunately, the venue burned down the night before their recording session was set to start. But out of the ashes of The Casino the band came up with one of the most memorable songs in music history. With smoke fanning out literally over the water of Lake Geneva, the band holed up in the Grand Hotel, cutting the album that was to become their masterpiece. The multi-platinum Machine Head peaked at the top in the U.K. and landed in the U.S. Top Five in 1972. The legendary single, "Smoke On The Water" (1971) was on this album along with concert favorites "Highway Star," "Space Truckin'" and "Lazy." The album was supported with four North American tours and a tour in Japan in 1972.

A year later, they issued Who Do You Think You Are.And, in the U.S. that year, they became the best-selling artists.

But as with many bands, dissension in the ranks developed, leading to another lineup change.

Gillian and Glover departed the band, while Glenn Hughes and David Coverdale were enlisted for Burn (1974). The band followed the release with a tour, which included dates at the Madison Square Gardens and the renowned California Jam Festival, sharing the bill with rock titans such as Eagles and Black Sabbath. A global tour followed.

After completing Stormbringer (1974), which generated the hits "Lady Double Dealer," "Soldier of Fortune" and "Gypsy," Blackmore left the band to found Rainbow in 1975.

In 1976, Deep Purple disbanded. It wasn't until 1984 that the classic lineup of Gillan, Lord, Blackmore, Paice and Glover reunited for the Perfect Strangers album, which garnered platinum status. The band kicked off a reunion tour in 1985, with it out-grossing every tour staged that year, including "The Boss" - Bruce Springsteen.

The House of Blue Light came out in 1987, which was once again supported by a sell-out tour. Nobody's Perfect followed in 1988.

Throughout the 1990s, the band soldiered on in one form or another, even though Blackmore exited the band permanently in 1993. Box-set collections and archival releases continued to keep their rabid fans happy. They also composed original material for Purpendicular (1996) and for Abandon (1998).

Deep Purple then spent a few years touring. Lord left the band in 2002 to pursue other solo endeavors. The following year they dropped Bananas. Rapture of the Deep dropped in 2005, with Now What?! arriving eight years later.
