Competition: Win tickets to see Deep Purple.

It has survived seemingly endless changes in line-up to emerge as a true hard rock institution. Once credited in the Guinness Book Of World Records as the loudest band on the planet, it has launched the careers of such musical luminaries as Ritchie Blackmore, David Coverdale and Ian Gillan.

It' is one of the world's best ever rock bands to emerge from the UK - Deep Purple - and what's more, the group are coming to Birmingham NEC on Saturday, September 14 (tickets, pounds 26.50, from the box office on 0870 909 4122) and we have a pair to give away plus a copy of the band's latest DVD, courtesy of Direct Video. In addition, a further two runners up will each receive a copy of the latest DVD Direct Video Distribution have just released a phenomenal live performance by Deep Purple on DVD and VHS. Recorded at the Sunrise Theatre in Florida, Perihelion showcases screaming guitar riffs, screeching vocals, brilliant keyboards, dynamic drumming and amusing stage antics that constitute a signature Purple show - and a remarkable concert experience. Released to coincide with the group's eagerly awaited UK tour this September and the recording of a new studio album, Deep Purple: Perihelion features no fewer than 14 brilliant tracks, among them the monster hits Hush, Woman From Tokyo and of course the enduring Smoke On the Water, which perhaps more than any other track positioned Deep Purple among Rock's elite.

Featuring Ian Gillan on vocals, Roger Glover on bass, Jon Lord on keyboards, Steve Morse on guitar and Ian Paice on drums, Perihelion is a remarkable souvenir of an unforgettable night.
