- Hear <a target="_blank" href="http://www.deeppurple.com">Deep Purple</a> and special guest <a target="_blank" href="http://www.ernieandtheautomatics.com">Ernie and the Automatics</a> at their websites.
Deep Purple have announced their first tour in North America in four years, and the pioneering rock band -- featuring classic members Ian Gillan (lead vocals), Roger Glover (bass) and Ian Paice (drums, percussion) -- will perform for the first time in North America with a symphony orchestra in each city (except San Francisco). The tour is called Deep Purple: The Songs That Built Rock, and it will make a stop at The Greek Theatre in Los Angeles with special guest Ernie and the Automatics.
Fans can expect to hear the band's trail-blazing iconic hits -- including "Smoke On The Water," "Highway Star," "Hush" and "Space Truckin'" -- plus other favorites achieve a new dimension of sound with the added heft of a symphony orchestra. In other parts of the world, Deep Purple has achieved acclaim for its live epic presentation of symphonic rock.
Throughout its career, Deep Purple has sold over 100 million albums worldwide and has incorporated classical music, blues-rock, pop and progressive rock. (Although the band's devoted fans treasure their live album Concerto for Group and Orchestra, the upcoming tour of North America will not draw from this work.)
Featuring former members of Boston, John Cafferty & The Beaver Brown Band and Peter Wolf's House Party Five, Ernie and the Automatics will open for Deep Purple on their North America tour. The members of Ernie and Automatics hold a unique place in Boston rock annals. Not only are they perpetuating the city's rich musical history, they're an integral part of it. At once fresh and familiar, the sextet's blues-powered, R&B-infused brand of rock & roll brings a bracing double shot of vitality and immediacy to Beantown's proud tradition, as EATA forcefully shove classic rock into the 21st century.
