Deep Purple’s latest studio album, “inFinite,” was released April 7, 2017, via earMUSIC and featured 10 new tracks recorded with no musical boundaries in the spirit of the 1970s. The metal pioneers have released five studio albums since 1996, augmented by an abundance of solo work and special projects from members Ian Gillan, Roger Glover, Ian Paice, Steve Morse and Don Airey. Fans will be thrilled as they cover decades of favorites for this run.
Few heavy metal bands have managed to scale the heights that Judas Priest have during their near 50-year career. Judas Priest’s latest studio album, “Firepower,” was released March 9, 2017, via Epic Records. The 14-track album has become one of the most successful of the band’s entire career, including their highest chart placement ever in the U.S. They scored their highest-charting commercial rock radio single in decades with “Lightning Strike.”
Daily’s Place opened in May 2017 adjacent to EverBank Field, the home of the National Football League’s Jacksonville Jaguars. A partnership between the Jaguars and the City of Jacksonville, the state-of-the-art facility’s 5,500-seat amphitheater and indoor practice facility welcomed more than 200,000 attendees to events and concerts in 2017. The new amphitheater has hosted performances by Dave Matthews and Tim Reynolds, Zac Brown Band, Diana Ross and Santana.
