Deep Purple & Judas Priest
Legends will collide late this summer when DEEP PURPLE and JUDAS PRIEST embark on a co-headlining North American tour with a stop at Jones Beach on Sat, Sept 1
DEEP PURPLE’s latest studio album, ‘inFinite’, was released April 7, 2017, via earMUSIC. Produced by the legendary Bob Ezrin, (PINK FLOYD, ALICE COOPER, KISS), ‘inFinite’ featured 10 new tracks recorded with no musical boundaries in the spirit of the ’70s. The metal pioneers have released five studio albums since 1996, augmented by an abundance of solo work and special projects from members Ian Gillan, Roger Glover, Ian Paice, Steve Morse, and Don Airey. Fans will be thrilled as they cover decades of favorites for this run. Additionally, Airey will release his solo album ‘One Of A Kind’ on May 25.
JUDAS PRIEST’s latest studio album, ‘Firepower’, was released March 9, 2018, via Epic Records. Co-produced by Tom Allom and Andy Sneap, the 14-track album has become one of the most successful of the band’s entire career — landing in the Top 5 of 17 countries (including their highest chart placement ever in the U.S.), and scoring their highest charting commercial rock radio single in decades with ‘Lightning Strike’. Few heavy metal bands have managed to scale the heights that JUDAS PRIEST have during their near 50-year career, and with a lineup featuring Rob Halford, Andy Sneap, Richie Faulkner, Ian Hill, and Scott Travis, JUDAS PRIEST will be scorching across North America with some heavy metal ‘Firepower’ again this summer and fall on tour with DEEP PURPLE.
