Classic British rockers Deep Purple perform hits such as "Smoke on the Water" and "Hush" at the Mayo Performing Arts Center on Sunday, Aug. 24 at 8 p.m. Tickets are $69 to $159.

Deep Purple has released four studio albums since 1996, but that total is augmented by an abundance of solo work and special projects from all five band members.

Ian Gillan, Roger Glover, Ian Paice, Steve Morse and Don Airey, Mark VIII of the band continue to travel the scope of hard rock.

The latter-year Purple has moved progressively into new areas, piquing fans' interest who were not born when the Purple machine began in 1968. Their holy grail of "In Rock" (1970) "Machine Head" (1972) and "Made In Japan" released in 1973 catapulted Deep Purple to the top in concert grosses and album sales around the world. "Smoke On The Water" ascended to mega-status.

Mayo Performing Arts Center is located at 100 South St. in Morristown. For tickets or more information contact the box office at 973-539-8008 or visit www.mayoarts.org.
