I recommend parking at the off-site lot and taking the shuttle. I hate stacked parking! There was plenty of parking available at the lot. There were at least 3 shuttles ready to take us to the venue, as well as take us to the parking area. We did not wait in line either time.

Deep Purple were great, as always. I have never seen them perform anything less than very good. As billed, it was all the usual hits, from Hush, through Tokyo, Woman, Lazy, Truckin to Perfect Strangers. The orchestra complemented a lot of the...continued

Better than I thought they were going to be, and I was very glad that Steve Morse was back as guitarist. Ian Gillan had trouble getting it all out voice-wise, but he still managed to do a decent job. Glad I went!

We really enjoyed this show and actually enjoyed the venue this time. Deep Purple showed their high level of musicianship. The keyboard player was incredible. The over 45 crowd also made it much more enjoyable where we could actually see and...continued

Quotes & Highlights

Hear Deep Purple and special guest Ernie and the Automatics 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.
