About Deep Purple
There simply aren’t enough superlatives to properly acknowledge the contribution Deep Purple has made to rock music. Having sold more than 100 million albums and filled global arenas for decades, it’s little wonder respected British radio station Planet Rock named the group the “Most Influential Band Ever,” whilst VH1 ranked them No. 22 on its Greatest Artists of Hard Rock list. Additionally, Deep Purple was given the Legend Award at the 2008 World Music Awards and was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2016. These guys truly are rock royalty. With a body of work spanning seven decades, Deep Purple has helped pioneer and define the hard rock genre whilst progressively moving into new areas to keep their sound fresh and attract new fans to the legions that have remained loyal since the band’s inception. Ian Gillan, Roger Glover, Ian Paice, Steve Morse, and Don Airey have once again showed that age shall not weary them, only confirming their ‘bankability’ as touring artists and further cementing the band’s legacy in the pantheon of rock music history.
