(UPDATE 7/22/15) Known for its driving power chords and distinct classic rock sound, Deep Purple continues to pack venues across North America nearly 50 years after forming. The England-based quintet is currently on the road in the U.S. for a string of summer shows through the middle of August. 16 more dates remain, and the band is garnering a healthy demand for tickets on the secondary market.
According to TicketIQ, the average secondary price for Deep Purple tickets is $125.36. The most expensive show comes on August 14 at Edgewater Casino in Laughlin, Nevada, where tickets average $232.70 and the get-in price is $144. It will be the only show that averages above $200 on the resale market – the band’s second top-priced gig will be at Count Basie Theatre on July 29 and tickets average $199.36. Get-in price for that show starts at $133.
Conversely, Deep Purple’s cheapest show will be held on August 5 at Celeste Center in Columbus, Ohio. That show owns a secondary ticket average of $78.02 and the cheapest available ticket is $52.12. One other show averages below $100. That will be on July 24 at Lynn Memorial Auditorium, where tickets average $93.52 and get-in price is $51.
