DEEP PURPLE singer Ian Gillan has announced the lineup of musicians that will join him on his North American dates in support of his new album, called "Gillan's Inn". They are as follows:

Randy Cooke - Drums

The "Gillan's Inn" tour is scheduled to kick off August 17 at the Danforth Music Hall in Toronto, Ontario, Canada. A complete list of dates can be found at this location.

According to Michael Lee Jackson, who is also serving as Ian Gillan's creative manager, "video, photo and recording will be permitted wherever venues allow."

"Gillan's Inn", which came out on April 18, spans the four decades of Gillan's professional life and includes some of his friends as guest performers, including his mates in DEEP PURPLE, the GOO GOO DOLLS, and singer-guitarist Jeff Healey, among many others.

"Gillan's Inn" is a DualDisc, and the DVD side has a track-by-track commentary from Gillan, along with scenes from the recording sessions, rare live footage, and other extras.
