Deep Purple
Played at Graspop Metal Meeting 2017

Hard Rock




In the late 60s, this legendary band jumpstarted the British hard rock scene with the likes of Black Sabbath and Led Zeppelin. Meanwhile they’ve sold over 120 million albums worldwide and rock classics such as Smoke on the Water and Child in Time are firmly etched in the collective memories of generations of music lovers. Their 1968 debut Shades of Deep Purple may be nearly half a century old but these founding fathers of hard rock are as relevant as ever. Come 17 June, Ian Gillan, Roger Glover, Steve Morse, Don Airey and drummer Ian Paice - the only constant in the band’s eight incarnations – will show why Deep Purple deserved to be inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. Their new studio album, ‘inFinite’, is coming out early 2017, with the first single to be released on 20 January. (#GMM17)
