Deep Purple And Journey Announce Australian Tour February/March 2013

Two mega rock groups of legendary status, Deep Purple and Journey (who are here for the first time) will be touring this summer, playing a run of dates through Australia and New Zealand. Shows include dates in Brisbane, Sydney, Melbourne, Adelaide and Perth. Our Kiwi brothers won’t miss out, with a show in Auckland being announced as well.

Deep Purple has sold over 100 million albums worldwide, with iconic hits including Black Night, Highway Star, Space Truckin’, Hush, My Woman From Tokyo, Perfect Strangers and Knocking At Your Backdoor, and of course Smoke on the Water, which is arguably one of the most famous guitar riffs ever written. Nominated for the 2013 Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, DEEP PURPLE are currently preparing to unleash their latest album of brand new material in February.

Journey, one of the most popular American rock bands of all time, have created some of the best-known songs in modern music, including Don’t Stop Believin’, Anyway You Want It, Faithfully, Who’s Cryin’ Now and Open Arms. Since the group’s formation in 1973, the band has earned 19 Top 40 singles and 25 Gold and Platinum albums in the US, with their Greatest Hits album going 15 times Platinum.

Tickets to all shows go on sale on at 9am (local times) on Monday, 12 November 2012.
