A US leg of The Long Goodbye Tour has been announced. It starts on September 3, 2019, in Riverside, California, and finishes on October 19 in Minneapolis, performing 33 shows and visiting 25 states in between. Support for September 7 show in California will be Foghat, with the rest of the tour still in mystery. Most venues on this tour are theaters with all reserved seating.

Ticket sales to general public start on May 10, with various presales starting as soon as tomorrow, May 7. The tour is promoted by the Live Nation/Ticketmaster behemoth, so expect their usual shenanigans with ticket availability and pricing.

All further details are in our calendar.

    I hope some Canadian dates pop up this Fall,including Toronto.
    I much prefer seeing Purple in a theatre,as opposed to an outdoor venue.

    Unfortunately the gigging planets haven’t quite aligned to put the Purps in San Fran when we’re there David Ruddick. But it was close!

    Pre-sale started today and I already got tickets for the Oct 8 show at the Beacon/NYC, which is not far from my office. It is my favorite venue in the States, and perfect for my favorite band. I have seen/met the boys on numerous occasions and, as much as I would love to see 100s of thousands people in front of them, their music is so powerful yet so delicate (think Buddy Guy’s approach of tension and release) that it makes it impossible for an open space to do it the proper justice.
    The Beacon seats roughly 3,000 people and it reminds me of the amazing classic halls in Milan and Venice. It seemed like more than half the tickets sold out a couple of hours after the pre-sale started. I guess they can add another night at the same venue, since they won’t be playing in CT until Oct 10. I hope to see the boys more then once this time around.

    What about Ireland? I have seen the guys on every tours since 85 (all in the US), but when this tour started in 17, I moved to Ireland so I missed the tours in New Jersey (twice so far they have played NJ and now three times with a stop in NYC). I am hoping they will make a stop in Ireland on the Long Good bye tour.
