On Friday, April 7, Deep Purple released their new album called “inFinite”, 4 years after the last album of the band. The music band kicks off the promoting “Long Goodbye Tour” with the performance which will be held in Bucharest on May 13 at Romexpo, the event being organized by Events and supported by Ciuc. Monster Truck will perform in the opening.
On the Romexpo stage, soloist Ian Gillan (solo), drummer Ian Paice (drums) and Roger Glover at bass guitar, will be accompanied by guitar player Steve Morse and by keyboardist Don Airey. The new album includes 10 songs and it is the fifth album released by the band in this formula. The first single, “Time for Bedlam”, was already released in December, while the song “All I Got is You” already has an official video. The album was produced by Bob Ezrin, who, during his career, has worked with many famous names, including Alice Cooper and Pink Floyd.
“If you take it literally, you might think that the ‘finite’ part in the name of the album describes the Deep Purple experience, with a clear start and a nebulous end, but what do you think about that ‘in’?” says Ian Gillan, in an attempt to clarify the name of the album. “The word ‘infinite’” is a 3D double-edged sword, it describes something that always goes in all directions. Stephen Hawking said in “A Brief History of Time” that before the Big Bang there was nothing. It contradicts the idea of our universe as being infinite, because it provides a starting point, contradicting the concept. So Hawking’s universe is finite by definition, even if he agrees with it or not. Ironically, Hawking is wrong (scientists are always wrong, in the end), therefore, universe is infinite, which means it will never end, and it also never had a starting point, and the corollary is, of course, that we do not exist. There is a metaphysical solution to all these issues, but it has to wait until the tournament ends, because thank God, there are only 24 hours in a day, for the moment, or ten hours in the decimal metric system”.
Deep Purple will start the “Long Goodbye Tour” on May 13, in Bucharest. On August 12, the band will join Alice Cooper in the US tour, which will start in Las Vegas and will end after one month, in Cincinnati.
