UK Dates At Last

Four confirmed British shows have at last been announced for October. No sign of the Opera House which IG was going on about, but instead a real surprise show at The Roundhouse in London. This was the venue where the band played their first ever British show back in 1968 so we can’t believe it isn’t a deliberate nod to history (even if IP is the only one from the current band who was there). Tickets on sale Thursday this week (promoter is LiveNation), but may be available on Wed to O2 customers (don’t ask me how this works, I don’t have a mobile – if it’s not queuing outside the ticket office for four hours I’m not interested!). No support info yet (Frampton is doing the honours for the German dates which follow). My thanks to our watcher of the skies Tim Summers. Dates are:

October 12 Manc Apollo
October 13 SECC Clyde Auditorium Glasgow
October 15 NIA Birmingham
October 16 Roundhouse London

    Hang on, Simon – wasn’t it Warrington, August 3rd? If not, then when did Purple play the Roudhouse exactly? If it was Warrington, then maybe they should come there for some kind of a secret gig…

    A shame there is not so many dates, but be thankful that there are some.
