Steve Morse Explains Deep Purple Orchestra Tour

(hennemusic) Last week, Deep Purple kicked off its first North American tour in four years. For the first time on these shores, Purple are performing with a symphony orchestra in each city. Used to touring as a five-piece, the band must accommodate about 41 more musicians.

"That's a lot of empty (instrument) cases in the dressing room," laughs Purple guitarist Steve Morse as he talks to the Star-Ledger.

"This one isn't going to be orchestra-based so much as: It's the rock band Deep Purple playing, with strings and horns being added for some color textures," explains Morse, who joined the lineup in 1993. "We're not going to change the songs I mean, there'll be a few little cameos and features but the basic idea of the show is: We're doing what we do, and having more texture where it's appropriate." more on this story
