Deep Purple UK tour 2020.png

After all the teasers for Deep Purple shows around and in Europe we’ve posted here (see below, more to come) recently, fans in the UK get  their chance with the announcement this week of a five date arena tour in October 2020. Support band is Blue Oyster Cult and tickets go on sale – er – today at 10.00am. For people like us who don’t like these sheds, the word from fans locally (hello Mike and Tim) is that the new Leeds Arena (which we’ve not had a chance to go to yet) is better than most as it was built specifically as a concert venue, not a multi purpose sport arena, so better viewing all round (though Simon moans about First Direct sponsoring it, as they were the gits who took his account overdraft off him … because he didn’t use it enough!!!). So maybe see you in the Tudor Rooms fish and chip restaurant beforehand.  The band’s new album will be out ahead of these concerts, and Ian Gillan, apart from being busy overusing the blur function in Photoshop, is promising “a couple or three new songs”.
