"After touring Australia in the early 70s, we returned in 1999 with Steve
Morse on guitar. Australia had given us a great welcome back and for this night
in 2001, we felt like doing something different, so we added singers and a horn
section. A rare night and a special gig." - Roger Glover, May 2019
Deep Purple are an English rock band formed in Hertford in 1968. The band is
considered to be among the pioneers of heavy metal and modern hard rock,
although their musical approach changed over the years.
Originally formed as a progressive rock band, the band shifted to a heavier
sound in 1970. Deep Purple, together with Led Zeppelin and Black Sabbath, have
been referred to as the "unholy trinity of British hard rock and heavy metal
in the early to mid-seventies". They were listed in the 1975 Guinness Book
of World Records as "the globe’s loudest band" for a 1972 concert at
London’s Rainbow Theatre, and have sold over 100 million albums worldwide.
Deep Purple have had several line-up changes and an eight-year hiatus
(1976–1984). The 1968–1976 line-ups are commonly labeled Mark I, II, III and IV.
Their second and most commercially successful line-up consisted of Ian Gillan
(vocals), Jon Lord (keyboards, backing vocals), Roger Glover (bass), Ian Paice
(drums), and Ritchie Blackmore (guitar). This line-up was active from 1969 to
1973, and was revived from 1984 to 1989, and again from 1992 to 1993. The band
achieved more modest success in the intervening periods between 1968 and 1969
with the line-up including Rod Evans (lead vocals) and Nick Simper (bass,
backing vocals), between 1974 and 1976 (Tommy Bolin replacing Blackmore in 1975)
with the line-up including David Coverdale (lead vocals) and Glenn Hughes (bass,
vocals), and between 1989 and 1992 with the line-up including Joe Lynn Turner
(vocals). The band’s line-up (currently including Ian Gillan, and guitarist
Steve Morse from 1994) has been much more stable in recent years, although
keyboardist Jon Lord’s retirement from the band in 2002 (being succeeded by Don
Airey) left Ian Paice as the only original Deep Purple member still in the band.
Deep Purple were ranked number 22 on VH1‘s Greatest Artists of Hard Rock program
and a poll on British radio station Planet Rock ranked them 5th among the “most
influential bands ever”. The band received the Legend Award at the 2008 World
Music Awards. Deep Purple (specifically Blackmore, Lord, Paice, Gillan, Glover,
Evans, Coverdale and Hughes) were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame
