Deep Purple and Judas Priest team up for North American tour

Deep Purple and Judas Priest are teaming up for a co-headlining tour of North America.

The 5-week, late summer run will begin in Cincinnati, OH on August 21 and hit 25 cities across the US and Canada before wrapping up in Wheatland, CA on September 30.

Deep Purple are on the road playing dates on their “inFinite – The Long Goodbye Tour.” The trek is named after the band’s 2017 set, “inFinite”, which they recorded in Nashville, TN with producer Bob Ezrin.
