Whitesnake’s big package (tour)

November 7, 2019

David Coverdale and whoever is in Whitesnake right now (I’m a bit out of touch) are coming over on a stadium visit to Britain May / June 2020.  They will be in the company of fellow rock and roll titans (© Manchester Evenings News!) Foreigner and (openers) Europe to form a triple bill likely to strike a spot with fans of 1980s hits and MTV.  There are six dates in all. They then fly over to Australia for a tour there with The Scorpions, including a show in New Zealand, then a date in Singapore on the way across to Japan for half a dozen headlining shows.

Tickets are fully on sale this Friday but there are pre-sale offers on meet and greet packages if you look online (they START at £129.00!). Details : London’s O2 Arena (May 31), Cardiff’s Motorpoint Arena (June 1), Arena Birmingham (June 3), Glasgow SSE Hydro (June 4) and Newcastle Utilita Arena (June 6), Manchester Arena on June 8.

The question we ask ourselves (apart from where I would hide for the other two acts!) is will they be a patch on the shows in 1979 and 1980 and the answer sadly is not, so I’ll put the money towards a trip to London to see the Bridget Riley exhibition instead.

It’s a date

UPDATE – A show in Italy has just been added, Bologna Park, on July 6th.

The first of Deep Purple‘s summer tour shows for 2020 have now been confirmed, with eight concerts in June / July across Austria and Germany (most of which are branded “Summer Nights 2020″). With one exception these all seem to be one day festivals, one of which includes Dweezil Zappa supporting Deep Purple and Uriah Heep. Thanks to Lutz Reinert for the full details (on our 2020 diary page) and sending some of the (sometimes garish!) adverts. Let us know if you spot any more to add to the list.

Now if you’ll excuse me, I’m off to look in all the ditches round about just in case there is a politician who can keep his word…
