Deep Purple + Judas Priest Announce Co-Headlining North American Tour
This tour simply can not be missed. Deep Purple and Judas Priest will join forces this August for a killer bill.
It's not every year two of the greatest bands ever assembled hit the road together. This summer, Deep Purple and Judas Priest will invade North America together for one of the year's most powerful lineups.
Priest just shook the world up with Firepower, which gave the band a Top Five album in 17 different countries. Firepower is being widely heralded as Judas Priest's best album since Painkiller and it will possibly be the swan song of Glenn Tipton, who has retired from the road due to Parkinson's.
As for Deep Purple, their 2017 album, Infinite, has gone gold in various countries and gave them their highest charting position in the U.S. since Perfect Strangers.
