Deep Purple concert chronology

The Long Goodbye Tour was a concert tour by British hard rock band Deep Purple in support for their 20th studio album, Infinite.

Background[edit]

Drummer Ian Paice suffered a minor stroke in June 2016, which affected his right hand, knuckles, thumbs and fingers.[1] This led to some Deep Purple concerts in Scandinavia being cancelled, and were the first of the band's shows he had been forced to cancel since Deep Purple's formation in 1968.[2]

At the time of the Long Goodbye Tour's announcement in December 2016, Paice told the Heavyworlds website it "may be the last big tour", adding that the band "don't know". He described the tour as being long in duration, and said: "We haven't made any hard, fast plans, but it becomes obvious that you cannot tour the same way you did when you were 21. It becomes more and more difficult. People have other things in their lives, which take time. But never say never."[3]

Deep Purple's studio album, Infinite, was released on 7 April 2017 and the Long Goodbye Tour serves as support for the record.

Musicians[edit]

Deep Purple will tour, as it has done since 2002, with its 'MK VIII' line-up, comprising:
