Among their many accomplishments, the band clinched an Innovator Award at the 2011 Classic Rock Awards in London.More recently in October this year, Deep Purple was nominated for a Rock and Roll Hall of Fame induction for 2013.

Despite having gone through many line-up changes and even an eight-year hiatus since, Deep Purple continues to perform live and extends their fanbase as newer generations discover their music.
The rock legends remain one of the hardest touring bands in the world. Their current line-up is known as Mark VIII of the band, comprising of Ian Gillan, Roger Glover, Ian Paice, Steve Morse and Don Airey.
