Deep Purple, the legendary classic rock band that’s had hits with songs like “Smoke on the Water,” “Hush” and “Woman from Tokyo” has announced the details of their late summer North American tour, scheduled to kick off August 4 in Scottsdale, Arizona and wrap August 31 in Hollywood, Florida. The Scottsdale show will take place at the casino inside the Talking Stick Resort.
Deep Purple has seen numerous line-up changes over the years and such rock luminaries as Ritchie Blackmore, Joe Satriani, David Coverdale, Joe Lynn Turner and the late Tommy Bolin and Jon Lord have all been members at one time or another. The band’s current line-up features Roger Glover, Ian Paice, Ian Gillan, Don Airey and Steve Morse.
About a year ago Deep Purple put out their 19th album, a return-to-form effort called “Now What?!” The album has also been recently released as a deluxe “Gold Edition” that includes additional songs and more than an hour’s worth of bonus live material. Fans attending the summer shows can expect to hear music from “Now What?!” including the single “All the Time in the World” along with material from the vast Deep Purple back catalog.
