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.

Their biggest hit is the song that’s inspired countless young guitarists across generations with its infamous opening riff, Smoke on the Water, which is celebrating its 40th anniversary this year.

Nominated for the 2013 Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, Deep Purple are expected to release their latest album of brand new material in February, just in time for the tour.

Also on the bill is Journey making their first ever tour of Australia. Responsible for hits such as Don’t Stop Believin’, Anyway You Want It, Faithfully, Who’s Cryin’ Now and Open Arms, they’ve earned 19 Top 40 singles and 25 Gold and Platinum albums in the US with their Greatest Hits album going 15 times Platinum.

Chugg Entertainment’s Executive Chairman, Michael Chugg, said “To have two of the world’s greatest ever rock bands on stage together is something we’re so proud to be involved with. These shows are going to tear the house down!”
