Deep Purple have announced that their ongoing One More Time tour will hit North American shores in August, with prog legends Yes completing the bill. The run of shows kicks off at Hard Rock Live in Hollywood, FL, on August 14, and wraps up on September 8 at The Pavilion At Montage Mountain in Scranton, PA. No West Coast dates have yet been announced.  

The new dates come in addition to the previously announced UK tour, which hits the Resorts World Arena in Birmingham on November 4, and visits London, Leeds and Manchester before wrapping up at the OVO Hydro in Glasgow on November 10. Full dates below.  

Deep Purple were scheduled to play a series of shows in Australia later this month as part of the touring Pandemonium festival, but their appearances have been cancelled after organisers reduced the size of the touring package, with fans of Placebo, the Dead Kennedys and Gang Of Four also losing out.

"Deep Purple never wants to disappoint, and so this is a difficult piece of news for us to share with our fans," said the band in a statement. "Deep Purple hopes to return to Australia very soon."

Presale tickets for the US shows will be available from April 10am local, with the general on-sale beginning on Friday, April 12 at the same time.
