In an unexpected surprise, Deep Purple have announced a North America summer tour for 2015.
Tickets and VIP Packages are on sale now in select markets with more dates going on sale in the coming days.
In 2014, VintageRock.com caught two of the band's shows in the States -- a free show in Las Vegas and a stop in at the Orange County Fairgrounds.
The band marks its return to Orange County on August 12.
