Bogus DP 1980 - concert info requested


Hello,

I'm doing researches in the Rod Evans´ bogus "Deep Purple" 1980 band history and would need some confirmation for a couple of concerts the group probably played. Has somebody of you been at one of the following shows or has maybe heard something about, f.e. if it was planed, but has been chanceled?
Any kind of help is very welcome.

1. Honolulu/Hawaii
(show took place, probably in the first two weeks of July 1980)

In August or September 1980:

2. Detroit/Michigan

3. Hibbing/Minessota

4. Phoenix/Arizona
(not the show with Llory McDonald)

5. Yuma/Arizona

6. Tucson/Arizona

7. Bozeman/Montana


More infos about the band are here:

Bogus Deep Purple 1980


Thanks a lot in advance,
best wishes

Gerhard

Sorry, can't really help you Gerhard, but thanks for the info and the link!

It's somehow telling the same lot tried to found a new Steppenwolf.

Have you tried finding the managers or the musicians?

Rezi,

it's difficult to get in touch with the musicians or former managers, and if, they mostly don't want to talk about. Many informations come from the people who saw the band live in 1980, so I really count on your all help.

Another show I miss the exactly date was in San Jose, at the Civic Auditorium. There is a review of the show at the HighwayStar site, written by Russell Edsinger. Has no one else seen the show or has perhaps kept a ticket of?

Thank you,
Gerhard

I would recommend to look for some vintage music mags (Circus, ...) of that period in ebay.

That's a good tip, also local papers of wherever they gigged at.

Good luck with the project, Gerhard!
