Deep Purple: The Long Goodbye Tour

Deep Purple Announce ‘inFinite’ The Long Goodbye Tour
Plus Very Special Guests ‘ Europe’

17 November 2017 Barclaycard Arena

 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.

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. In the latter-years Purple have moved progressively into new areas, piquing fans’ interest who were not born when the mighty Purple machine ruled the music world’s money trees.

Having amassed so many songs that get coined under the “classic” moniker, setlists have been a never-ending debate among diehards and newer fans especially with the most recent album ‘NOW WHAT ?!’ The Number One Gold Status and top ten album across the globe. The last chapter of a strong career of over 120 million albums sold, it has sold to date over half a million copies and the band have sold over a million concert tickets since its release alone. The band’s videos "From the Setting Sun in wacken" and "To the Rising Sun in Tokyo" charted on the same day at 1 and 2 in UK's music video charts proving the fascination the band's shows have on their audience.
