What a pairing this is going to be! Rock and Roll Hall of Famers Deep Purple and metal legends Judas Priest will be sharing stages together later this summer and we’ve got the ultimate hook-up for you.

You can win premium tickets for you and a guest to the show of your choosing on their upcoming tour and to help get you ready for that gig, both bands have included a stellar merchandise package as well.

While you’re seeing Judas Priest unleash their metal fury, you can watch from the audience sporting your new “Firepower” hoodie if it’s a little cool at night or have the brand new “Firepower” tour t-shirt if it’s a warm evening. The Priest portion of the prize package also includes a baseball cap and a Firepower CD signed by the band.

The prizes are also outstanding for Deep Purple fans, who will have a meet and greet and photo op with the band members (minus Ian Gillan), will receive an exclusive autographed lithograph, will have a commemorative laminate and lanyard from the experience and will also receive a still-to-be-determined piece of VIP merchandise. In addition, you’ll be able to have one personal item autographed by the group.

So how do you win this amazing ticket offer and prize package? By getting social with us and following the links below to gain entry into the contest. This contest runs through Monday, Aug. 6 at 11:59PM ET and the more you like, share, follow and subscribe, the more entries you get, so be sure to get your entries in now.
