[DEEP PURPLE]. Carbon Partly Printed DS: "Joseph D. Giovino" in ink as Chairman of the Board of Stadium and Memorial Auditorium and "Anthony Russino" in ink for Concerts East, Inc., 4p, 8½x14, front and verso. Buffalo, New York, 1974 February 6. Agreement between the City of Buffalo and the Concerts East, Inc. for Deep Purple to appear in concert at the Buffalo Memorial Arena on March 5, 1974 from 7:00 p.m.-11:30 p.m. The cost for the Arena was $750 and 12.5% of the gross receipts. Concerts East, Inc. was also required to "provide bodily injury liability insurance in the amounts of $100/300,000. and property damage liability insurance in the amount of $50,000" and provide "Special Police...as ordered by the Board of Stadium and Memorial Auditorium". Concerts East, Inc. would also be responsible for additional chairs on the arena floor, if required. Also initialed by a notary public. Deep Purple, formed in Hertford, England in 1968, originally consisted of Ritchie Blackmore (guitar), Rod Evans (vocals), Nick Simper (bass), Jon Lord (keyboards) and Ian Paice (drums). Evans was later replaced by Ian Gillan and bassist Roger Glover was recruited when Simper left the group. In 1973, the year before Deep Purple performed at this concert, there was another shake-up in personnel: Gillan left and was replaced by David Coverdale and Glover was replaced by bassist/singer Glenn Hughes. In 1974, the year of this concert, the group recorded two albums, Burn and Stormbringer, before Blackmore left and was replaced by Tony Bolin. This concert featured original members Blackmore, Lord and Paice (all the original Deep Purple members would reunite ten years later for the smash album, Perfect Strangers). The group, which is best known for their hit, "Smoke on the Water", continues to perform and record despite numerous later changes in personnel. Lightly creased with folds. Staple holes at upper blank margin. Fine condition.
