Rock royalty Deep Purple returns to UK
One of the UK’s greatest rock exports, Deep Purple have today announced that they will be hitting the road this Winter, performing at Birmingham’s LG Arena on Sunday, November 27.
Featuring classic members Ian Gillan (lead vocals), Roger Glover (bass) and Ian Paice (drums, percussion) along with Steve Morse (guitar) and Don Airey (keyboards), it will be the bands first time touring with a symphony orchestra in each city.
Deep Purple, who formed in England in 1968 and released their debut album that year, have sold over 100 million albums worldwide. Iconic hits include “Smoke On The Water,” “Highway Star,” “Space Truckin,’”, “Hush” and “My Woman From Tokyo.”
In March 2011, they made their eighth visit to Russia, a country where the group made early inroads as a touring act and where they’ve performed at the personal request of the country’s president Dmitry Medvedev.
With a new album planned for 2012, Deep Purple are still regarded as one of the best Rock acts to have emerged from the UK, so don’t miss your chance to see these very special shows, their first in the UK with a symphony orchestra.
Tickets to the show are on-sale at 9am on Friday 15th April priced at £45 (plus booking and transaction fees) and are available from The Ticket Factory www.theticketfactory.com 0844 338 8000.
