Alice Cooper, Deep Purple bringing classic rock tour to Dallas

When the Gexa Energy Pavilion changed its name to the Starplex Pavilion, a name it once held many years ago, there were high hopes that the Dallas concert venue would celebrate with a giant 2017 concert year. That has really started to come together with the first concert announcements of the new year and one of those events include legends of rock and roll. Live Nation reported that Deep Purple and Alice Cooper will hit the Starplex Pavilion in Dallas for a concert on Aug. 19. Tickets went on sale for this big show today.

Deep Purple actually has a new studio album coming out this year on April 7 called Infinite. This is the band’s 20th studio album. Original members Ian Paice (drums), Ian Gillan (vocals), and Roger Glover (bass) are still playing in the band after 39 years. Deep Purple has called this the “Continuing Their Long Goodbye Tour.”

Alice Cooper has played a few concerts in Dallas in recent years. Including a surprise concert at a Dallas record store back in 2015. As he has for the past few years, Cooper has announced that he will be “playing all the hits” on this concert tour. Texas music fans also have a chance to catch Alice Cooper at a solo concert in Midland, Texas, on May 7, with tickets available through AXS.

Tickets for the Deep Purple and Alice Cooper Dallas concert are on sale now here. Prices for the Aug. 19 show at the Starplex Pavilion start out at $25 for general admission lawn seats and go up to $99.50 for reserved seats. The Edgar Winter Band will open for the two rock and roll legends.
