Blackmore's Night

While the Highway Star news crew was travelling around Quebec, several items of interest regarding Blackmore’s Night came in. At the moment they are touring Germany.

  • Deutsche Welle TV Euromax will air a Blackmore’s Night special on August 3, including live footage from the performance in Berlin and a new interview. 7:30 PM in German and 10:30 PM in English (both times are presumably Central European). You can watch it online at Deutsche Welle TV, Internet TV Stream.
  • Blackmore’s Night recently did an interview on Radio Marabu. The show was posted online and can be downloaded from their website: part 1 and part 2 (2x55MB MP3). Part One only has adverts for the interview on it; it is the second half of part two, that has the actual interview. On August 8th, the show will also be broadcasted via satellite on the Radio Caroline frequency in the UK. That will be from 17:00 to 19:00 CET.
  • Blackmore’s Night Italian Fan club has now it’s own website: http://www.blackmoresnight.it/.

    A lot of time is devoted to a neutral discussion on climate change before getting on with the music.

    Blackmore’s tact is admirable. References to the ability to play whatever he wants instead of the same thing every night and the freedom to do cover songs was only a passing reference to Deep Purple without mentioning names, rather than come right out and say so-and-so is an “intellectual dwarf,” etc.

    Blackmore has been very silent about comments related to Purple, but the volleys coming the other way are very frequent. He seems to be very careful not to “say too much.” I admire his tactful stance.

    Blackmore? Tact? Are we talking about the same Blackmore? Sure it wasn’t a fake Blackmore?

    Most of the lobs are coming from IG.
