Called the ‘One More Time’ tour, the dates comprise five shows across the country, and will see Ian Gillan and co. break out live renditions of their biggest hits including ‘Highway Star’, ‘Soldier Of Fortune’ and ‘Smoke On The Water’.

The dates kick off with an opening night at the Resorts World Arena in Birmingham on November 4, before continuing two days later with a show at London’s O2 arena (November 6).

A gig at the First Direct Arena in Leeds is scheduled for the following night (7), and the tour wraps up with slots at Manchester’s AO arena and Glasgow’s OVO Hydro – set for November 9 and 10 respectively.

Support for the UK shows will come from ’90s indie-rock legends Reef, and tickets go on general sale this Friday (March 22) at 10am GMT. Visit here to buy tickets and check out a list of tour dates below.
