Win Tickets to a Deep Purple + Alice Cooper Concert

Share This:

Three classic rock legends, Deep Purple and Alice Cooper, with special guest, the Edgar Winter Band, are in the midst of a North America summer tour, produced by Live Nation. (The tour also serves as the “Long Goodbye Tour” for Deep Purple.)

Live Nation is giving away a pair of tickets to one Best Classic Bands reader!

Deep Purple’s new studio album, Infinite, was released in April, via earMUSIC. Produced by Bob Ezrin, (Pink Floyd, Alice Cooper, Kiss), the album features 10 new tracks recorded, as the announcement states, “in the spirit of the ’70s.”

Here’s “Johnny’s Band” from the new album…

The metal pioneers have released five studio albums since 1996 and special projects from members Ian Gillan, Roger Glover, Ian Paice, Steve Morse and Don Airey. Deep Purple was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2016.

Known as the architect of shock-rock, Cooper’s catalog of hits and anthems, including “I’m Eighteen,” “No More Mr. Nice Guy,” “School’s Out,” “Elected,” and others, are featured in his live show, along with a mix of newer songs and fan-favorite album cuts. His touring band features guitarists Nita Strauss, Tommy Henriksen and Ryan Roxie, backed by longtime bassist Chuck Garric and drummer Glen Sobel. Cooper was inducted into the Rock Hall in 2011.

Winter has been celebrated across the globe since his 1970 solo debut, Entrance. He’s released more than 20 albums and is best known for his monster hit “Frankenstein,” a #1 smash in 1973 and its follow-up, “Free Ride.”
