Deep Purple announce North American tour with Yes

Deep Purple has announced dates for a North American tour with special guests Yes.

Part of the =1 More Time Tour, the month-long series will begin August 14 in Hollywood, FL, with the schedule wrapping up in Scranton, PA on September 8.

VIP Meet & Greet packages and presale tickets are now available (use password: SMOKE), with general public tickets on sale Friday, April 12 at 10 AM local time.

News of the summer run follows the recent release of UK and European dates in the fall.

Deep Purple recently released an expanded Super Deluxe Edition of its 1972 album classic, “Machine Head.”

The 3-CD/LP/Blu-ray set delivers multiple versions of the album, including new stereo and Dolby Atmos mixes by Dweezil Zappa; a 1974 quadraphonic mix and a newly remastered version of the original album are also featured, and the package is rounded out with two live performances from the era.

In the liner notes, Zappa says: “It’s one of those records where I think, ‘How did they come up with this?’ It’s got classical influences in the guitar and the keyboard, but then it’s got the blues and there’s little bits of funkiness. And you have this singer who has the most killer voice. All these things come together in a way where it doesn’t sound like commercial music, yet people got really excited about it. It’s a fascinating recipe.”
