Re: Uk tour announced for October 2020


And new album

A MESSAGE FROM IAN GILLAN

It was late March in 2019, when I found myself in Nashville TN, renting an Airbnb delight called ‘Rose River Cottage’, on one bank of the Cumberland River, almost directly opposite the Grand Ole Opry, from where the quaint music would drift across the water into the wee small hours.

It was springtime, and – along with the woodchucks – I was emerging from hibernation.

Across town, other members of Deep Purple were staying in more urbane accommodation. This was a shock, as we are famous for our lack of planning and we all wondered what had drawn us together in this place and time.

An even greater surprise was to follow; each member (arms and legs I’m talking about) arrived at a rehearsal studio and then a recording studio at roughly the same time on roughly the same day with roughly no idea of what we were doing.

It was a total coincidence, the like of which has probably never been witnessed since – unbelievably – exactly the same thing happened a few years earlier when we spawned some In-Finite ideas.

Then – blow me down – Bob Ezrin turned up and said ‘Let’s have dinner on Monday’

Someone enquired ‘What’s the big occasion?’

Bob replied ‘To celebrate the fact that we are all still alive…’

‘In which case’ continued the world-weary muso, ‘We’d better make it Sunday’

But we survived the weekend and had dinner on Monday.

Tuesday, we made another album and Wednesday we went to the pub….

Something like that anyway (it was all a blur) and now we gird our lions (yes, I know, but I’m in Africa) for a year of febrile activity into which a rare amount of planning has been invested; obviously not by us.

I sense the grinding of campaign wheels, the oiling of creaky roadies, rumours of itineraries and ripples of creativity in Hamburg. Quite plainly something is in the air; but I have no idea what it could be.

Perhaps, after another brief hibernation, all will become clear, in the spring of 2020.

Re:


All UK dates are in awful venues that they can't hope to fill. So the top tier of the 02 will be curtained off, same at Manchester and possibly the big black curtain again at Birmingham.
How great was the tour in 96 where they played theaters and halls?

Re: Re:


It was pretty full on the long goodbye tour at Manchester but i know a lot of casual and not so die hards went as a first/last chance to see them.
 It was a great show but i agree about the Purple shows in the North of the UK being usually poorly attended.
 1998 M.E.N. very small crowd and in Birmingham 2001 i think half the arena was boxed off (i think it was the one that was filmed , with IG having a right go at the cameramen during Fireball). 2004 Manchester was quite well attended but that was a package tour with Thin Lizzy,Pete Frampton and Thunder. 2007 Manchester 2/3 full i think, Ian Gillan was in rare form that night , really strong.
 I will be there in Manchester 2020 but the ticket prices are off putting if it is basically the same old show.

It kills any atmosphere stone dead when parts of the arena are blocked off.
Playing theaters and halls would be far better at this stage of their career.

Might depend on the support a bit but think DP UK show ticket sales on upward trajectory.

From the DP UK gigs I've been to

Birmingham NEC 2009 approx. 5,000 (Support Crave) - only used half venue

London O2 2011 orchestra upper tier curtained off - floor/1st tier pretty much sold out (Support Cheap Trick)

London O2 2015 - floor/1st tier sold out, approx. 1,500 seats sold upper tier - I was in upper tier (Support Rival Sons)

Birmingham Arena (not NEC) 2017 Long Goodbye Tour - pretty much sold out (Support Europe, Cats in Space)

I got the impression from the ticket maps/You Tube that the upper tier for London O2 in 2017 was fuller than in 2015

Birmingham Arena is a bit smaller than NEC and that is their Birmingham venue in 2020 again

I'm planning to go to Manchester too but don't think it will be same old show as new studio album likely to be out Spring and in 2017 they played a decent number of tracks off Infinite

Re: Uk tour announced for October 2020


I'm undecided whether to go to Glasgow or not. I went to the last show in Glasgow on the Long Goodbye Tour and I'd basically come to terms with this being the last time Purple would play in Scotland. With that in mind, I was relatively satisfied that what I thought would be my last Purple show was decent, if not spectacular.

However, a combination of high ticket price, a long drive to Glasgow and back on a Monday night, a support band I've no interest in seeing whatsoever, and concerns about what shape IG's voice will be in by October next year are currently weighing heavily on my decision.
