Deep Purple are back with a new Album "Infinite" and Single and this year they head out on tour once more. The tour will kick off in Vegas with Alice Cooper and the Edgar Winter Group taking the support slots. See below for all the tour dates.

When asked about a Richie Blackmore reunion in an interview with  Rock Brigade podcast the Deep Purple legend Ian Paice said -

“Of course, the answers to both of those are ‘possibly.’ But when Ritchie left, nobody fired him, nobody said, ‘You have to go.’ It was his choice. And so the band continued, the band moved on. Ritchie started doing his thing, which is great. He was obviously happy doing it, and we’ve been happy doing what we’ve been doing for the last 23, 24 years, ’cause that’s how long ago it is.”

He continued, “Quite honestly, there’s no point for us to consider that. We have a wonderful feeling within the band, everybody’s very friendly, and all we have to do is go onstage and make the music; there’s no other considerations to worry about. I think Ritchie’s life doesn’t work like that. I think it’s a little more complex. And at this stage of my life, I don’t need cloudy areas. I like it to be clear and crystal and know that it’s gonna be fun. I love Ritchie to death, but I can’t guarantee every day with him is gonna be fun.”

In addition to a new Deep Purple album and tour Richie Blackmore recently announced new songs and another tour with new singer Ronnie Romero.
