Legends will collide late this summer when DEEP PURPLE and JUDAS PRIEST embark on a co-headlining North American tour.
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.


Deep Purple released their 20th studio album, the Bob Ezrin-produced Infinite in 2017. The hard-rock veterans supported the LP on a lengthy world tour that stretched from last May through December and they have additional standalone dates scheduled for this summer. The band’s line-up currently includes three members from the band’s classic Seventies line-up – singer Ian Gillan, bassist Roger Glover and drummer Ian Paice – along with guitarist Steve Morse and keyboardist Don Airey.

Judas Priest issued their 18th studio project, Firepower, in March. The record – their first featuring producer Tom Allom since 1988’s Ram It Down – debuted at Number Five on the Billboard 200, marking the group’s highest U.S. chart placement to date in the U.S. The metal icons are currently touring behind the album with guitarist Andy Sneap substituting for longtime member Glenn Tipton, who recently announced his battle with Parkinson’s disease. Tipton rejoined the band last month during a New Jersey concert, playing on the three-song encore of “Metal Gods,” “Breaking the Law” and “Living After Midnight.”
