The Perfect Strangers Tour was a concert tour by British hard rock band Deep Purple. It was the first tour from the band since 1976 and the first to feature the classic Mark II lineup since 1973. The tour was in support of their first album together in over 11 years Perfect Strangers. The tour was a massive success; out-grossing every touring artist of 1985 with the exception of Bruce Springsteen.
