Hit songs  Highway Star, Perfect Strangers, Knocking At Your Back Door, HushBlack NightFireball and Smoke On The Water helped define heavy rock, riffs and all. They remain true to the band’s origins and their ever-forging future.

Deep Purple was inducted into the Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame in April 2016.

  1. Man what is up with these bands skipping the west coast these days??? It’s like there’s an invisible wall in Texas somewhere and they can’t cross it. Is Biden trying to finish the wall Trump started and building it in the wrong place?

    1. I’m sure they do a second leg that takes them out west . Will they make it to Northern Calif is another thing .
