(St. John’s, NL) Paul Mercs Concerts and Mile One Centre are pleased to present rock pioneers, Deep Purple. On the first stop of their Smoke on the Nation Tour,Deep Purple will perform at Mile One Centre on Thursday, February 2nd, 2012.

Nearly four decades after forming, over 100 million albums sold worldwide andrecent recipients of The Innovator Award at the 2011 Classic Rock Roll of Honour Awards, Deep Purple are without a doubt one of the most dynamic andinfluential bands in rock history.

Classic hits like ‘Smoke on the Water’, ‘Hush’, ‘Black Night’, and ‘Kentucky Woman’ are just a few of their most memorable tunes. Deep Purple are considered to be one of the hardest touring bands in the world. From 1968 until today (with the exception of their 1976–1984 split) they continue to tour around the world. In 2007, the band received a special award for selling more than150,000 tickets in France, with 40 dates in the country in 2007 alone. Also in2007, Deep Purple's Rapture of the Deep Tour was voted the #6 concert tour of the year by Planet Rock listeners. The Rolling Stones, A Bigger Bang Tour was voted #5 and beat Purple's tour by only 1%.The Smoke on the Nation tour promises to be equally as amazing.
