Deep Purple's first North American tour in four years — which is scheduled to kick off in early June — will feature classic members Ian Gillan (lead vocals), Roger Glover (bass) and Ian Paice (drums, percussion) along with Steve Morse (guitar) and Don Airey (keyboards). The trek, dubbed "A Night With Deep Purple And The Songs That Built Rock", will see the band performing in each city while backed by a 30-piece symphony orchestra.
