Deep Purple and Journey - Perth Arena

This event has passed!

Chugg Entertainment have announced the rock 'n roll summer bill of the year with legendary groups Deep Purple and Journey set to tour in February and March, 2013.

Deep Purple has sold over 100 million albums worldwide with iconic hits including Black Night, Highway Star, Space Truckin', Hush, My Woman From Tokyo, Perfect Strangers and Knocking At Your Backdoor and Smoke on the Water, arguably the song known by generations of music lovers worldwide celebrates its 40th anniversary this year. Ian Gillan, Roger Glover, Ian Paice, Steve Morse and Don Airey continue to travel the scope of hard rock - the textures and nuances of recent works are anything but thudding retreads. If you set a random play setting for the band's entire catalogue, the result is one of the finest musical outputs to grace rock music. Having amassed so many songs that get coined under the "classic" moniker, set lists have been a never-ending debate among diehards and newer fans. But Deep Purple has been more than in synch with fans' tastes to remain a powerful drawing force since their formation in 1968. Nominated for the 2013 Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, Deep Purple are currently preparing to unleash their latest album of brand new material in February, 2013.

Ian Gillan added "What a fabulous tour. I'm really looking forward to this and want to be in the crowd! Deep Purple AND Journey? Amazing!"

Joining Deep Purple on the road for their tour is legendary San Franciscan rock outfit, Journey.

Journey is one of the most popular American rock bands of all time, creating some of the best-known songs in modern music including Don't Stop Believin', Anyway You Want It, Faithfully, Who's Cryin' Now and Open Arms. Since the group's formation in 1973, the band has earned 19 Top 40 singles and 25 Gold and Platinum albums in the US with their Greatest Hits album going 15 times Platinum. Journey's 2011 Eclipse World Tour was one of the band's most successful tours ever, drawing nearly a million fans and ranked in the Top 15 Tours of the year. In honour of their significant and lasting contributions to live music and the touring business, and in acknowledgement of their commitment to the fans and the art of performing live, band members Neal Schon, Jonathan Cain, Ross Valory, Deen Castronovo and Arnel Pineda were awarded the prestigious "Legend Of Live Award" at the 2011 Billboard Touring Awards.
