ENGLISH rock­ers Deep Pur­ple will tour Aus­tralia next year. The band has been tour­ing across the UK, Europe and Canada this year to mark the 40th an­niver­sary of their clas­sic hit Smoke on the Wa­ter. They’ll be joined by leg­endary San Fran­cis­can rock out­fit Jour­ney, who will make their first tour of Aus­tralia and New Zealand. Deep Pur­ple are con­sid­ered to be among the pi­o­neers of heavy metal and mod­ern hard rock, along with Led Zep­pelin and Black Sab­bath, and were nom­i­nated for the 2013 Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. The band plans to re­lease an al­bum of new ma­te­rial in Fe­bru­ary.

Deep Pur­ple and Jour­ney play the Bris­bane En­ter­tain­ment Cen­tre on Fe­bru­ary 26.
