Lots of chatter suggesting that Blackmore will confirm five more Rainbow shows in Europe during 2017, as was mooted back when the first shows were taking place. His new singer Ronnie Mk 2 has also been talking about looking forward to this. Let’s hope they can spend a little more time rehearsing to allow them to develop the potential shown in some of the set. Blackmore has apparently taken on board, probably not without a little satisfaction, people’s preference for the next set to be more focused on Rainbow’s own catalogue. Meantime there are rumours that once Coverdale and Paice showed him the door, Blackmore tried to get Hughes on board with similar results. Looks like he needn’t have bothered! Still no news at our end on the projected DVD/CD of the 2016 show, has anyone else spotted a release sheet?
The Man In Black’s due back?
