Deep Purple and Judas Priest are upping the summer 2018 tour stakes with their April 23 announcement of a co-headlining North American tour. Produced by Live Nation, the outing will kick off Aug. 21 and visit 25 cities across the U.S. and Canada before wrapping Sept. 30. Tickets are available here and here.

Deep Purple’s latest studio album, inFinite, was released April 7, 2017, via earMUSIC. Produced by the legendary Bob Ezrin, (Pink Floyd, Alice Cooper, Kiss), InFinite featured 10 new tracks in the spirit of the 70s. The metal pioneers have released five studio albums since 1996, plus an abundance of solo work and special projects from members Ian Gillan, Roger Glover, Ian Paice, Steve Morse and Don Airey (who will release his solo album, One of a Kind, on May 25).

Judas Priest’s latest studio album, Firepower, was released March 9, 2018, via Epic Records. Co-produced by Tom Allom and Andy Sneap, the 14-track album has become one of the most successful of the band’s entire career – landing in the Top 5 of 17 countries (including their highest chart placement ever in the U.S.), and scoring their highest charting commercial rock radio single in decades with “Lightning Strike.” Their line-up featuring Rob Halford, Glenn Tipton, Richie Faulkner, Ian Hill, and Scott Travis finishes their current headlining tour on May 1.
