Only a short time after Iggy Pop announced their summer concert, Deep Purple also announced the date that they are giving a performance in Budapest Papp László Arena.
Deep Purple, one of the pioneers of heavy metal and modern hard rock, comes to Papp László Budapest Sport Arena on 9th of December, 2019, reports 24.hu. This news was introduced shortly after Iggy Pop’s announcement about performing at Budapest Park on the 24th of July, 2019.
The ticket selling for the concert started on 27th March from 10 am.
The band was last in Hungary in 2014 at Fezen Festival in Székesfehérvár. Before that, they were giving an extraordinary performance in 1991 and 1987 (watch YouTube videos of the concerts by clicking on the links).
Deep Purple is a pioneer of the heavy metal and modern hard rock genres, although they originally have started as a progressive rock band and only changed to hard rock in 1970.
In 1975, they were named as the loudest band in The Guinness Book of World Records, based on their performance at the 1972 London Rainbow Theater, where their sound reached 117 dB.
Together with Led Zeppelin and Black Sabbath, they were also referred to as the “70s British Hard Rock and Heavy Metal Trinity”.
The team had an impact on countless rock and metal bands. Among others, Metallica, Judas Priest, Queen, Aerosmith, Van Halen, Alice in Chains, Pantera, Bon Jovi, Rush, Motörhead, Iron Maiden and Def Leppard also call them one of their main musical inspirations.
During their career, Deep Purple sold more than 100 million discs and got into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2016.
