In what could be the most smokin’ tour of the summer, Deep Purple is teaming up fellow Rock and Roll Hall of Famer Alice Cooper for a North American trek that also will feature the Edgar Winter Band as the opening act. The outing will mark the launch of the stateside leg of Deep Purple’s previously reported Long Goodbye Tour, and will come on the heels of the April 7 release of the influential U.K. hard-rockers’ latest studio album, inFinite.
The 19-date tour gets underway on August 12 in Las Vegas and is plotted out through a September 10 concert in Cincinnati. The trek also will visit such other major cities as Los Angeles, Phoenix, Dallas, Boston, Indianapolis, Pittsburgh, Toronto, Detroit and Cleveland, as well as stopping near Houston, New York, Chicago and St. Louis.
Tickets go on sale to the general this Friday, February 3, at LiveNation.com and via the Live Nation app. Citi card members will be able to access advance tickets and VIP packages beginning on Tuesday, January 31, at 10 a.m. local time. Visit CitiPrivatePass.com for more details. In addition, Live Nation will offer pre-sale tickets starting Thursday, February 2, at 10 a.m. local time via its website, app and Facebook page.
inFinite is the follow-up to Deep Purple’s 2013 album Now What?!, both of which were produced by veteran rock producer Bob Ezrin. As previously announced, a limited-edition EP featuring inFinite‘s first single, “Time for Bedlam,” as well as non-album tracks and previously unreleased recordings, will be available this Friday, February 3.
