MUSIC NEWS- Heavy metal legends, Deep Purple, fresh off a European tour to support their 19th studio album NOW What?!, are heading stateside for a North American concert tour! The run kicks off August 4 in Scottsdale, AZ (full tour itinerary is below from MNN).
NOW What?! was originally released in North America in April 2013 via earMusic / Eagle Rock Entertainment. The album marked the next great chapter in the band’s 40+ year career, blending the classic 70s Deep Purple spirit with modern production and a progressive mindset.
