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”.

We’ve had enquiries from people with spare tour tickets wanting to sell them, so have added a new ADVERTS page to the DTB site. Just follow the guidelines and we’ll stick the adverts up (Purple related). For tickets we will only accept ads for face value to eliminate any touting. [There are two tickets for one of the London show up there now as we’ve had to book in the flipping builders in to do some urgent roof / window work – and guess which is the week they want to come!]

Talking of adverts I appreciate the ones which apparently appear on this site are annoying. Apparently it’s a symptom of the site’s increasing popularity!  We get nothing for them, and I’m looking at the options to get rid of them.
