Hearing rock music live can infuse listeners with adrenaline, unlike hearing smooth jazz in an elevator or hearing the silence after an elevator has crushed a smooth-jazz quartet. Enjoy the sonic excitement of heavy metal with today's Groupon: for $35, you get one ticket to see Deep Purple, accompanied by a full concert symphony orchestra, live at the Bethel Woods Center for the Arts on Sunday, June 12, at 7:30 p.m. (a $59.50 value before fees, or up to a $70.95 value online, including all Ticketmaster fees). Doors open at 6 p.m.
The hard-rock pioneers of Deep Purple bring their hallowed brand of musical thunder to the Bethel Woods Center for the Arts as they continue their march through musical history. The group of tunesmiths responsible for hits such as "Smoke on the Water" and "Woman from Tokyo," Deep Purple wields a reputation as one of the world's loudest bands, giving eardrums the exercise they just can’t get from hushed performances of pantomimed opera. For this special night, a symphony orchestra joins the band to supplement the aural bombast, taking the stage after a blistering set from classic-rock mechanics Ernie and the Automatics. Purchase up to eight of today’s deal and treat a deuce of bobsled teams to a night of riff-centric revelry and high-decibel bonding.
A renowned outdoor venue, the Bethel Woods Center for the Arts sports ample room for toe-tapping, finger-snapping, and air-guitaring. Seating is located in sections 6–9 and will be assigned on a first-come, first-served basis at Will Call.
