Paris, Frankfurt and Helsinki

Several new promotional appearances have surfaced in the past few days.

Ian Paice will do an in-store appearance at the F-Musiikki Vantaa in Finland, for their “Big Drum Day” event on April 8.

Another in-store appearance promoting inFinite has been announced for April 10 at the FNAC Paris Saint-Lazare. Caveat: even though it is marked as Deep Purple in our calendar, it is not clear at this moment which members of the band will participate. Ian Paice, Roger Glover, and Don Airey are reported to take part.

Don Airey will be performing with his band at the Musikmesse in Frankfurt for two days — on April 6 and 7th.

Thanks to Nigel Young and SH for the info.

    “I’m not sure what I was expecting from my meeting with Deep Purple… 🎶 rock legends with a tumultuous past who are now more than eligible to be part of the University of the 3rd age. 👨🏻‍🎤Over the past 50 years members have left, come back, left again, come back again, fallen out, made up and so on and so on.💫💥The final fivesome seems a solid combo with Ian Gillan, Ian Paice, Roger Glover, Steve Morse and Don Airey for the past five albums. 🎹🎼🎧🎤🎸I met three of them for the promo of their new record Infinite ahead of the long goodbye tour that kicks off in May. They were pure gents. English to the max, making jokes 😊at any opportunity, gently mocking each other with a fondness that has grown after decades of working together, 20 albums later. They told me stories of randomly bumping into President Clinton in Birmingham and playing with David Bowie before he was famous. How I’ll cut down the interview to fit in @encore’s 12 minute slot I don’t know. With the occasional swig from a champagne 🍾bottle or glass (which I’ll surely have to edit out due to French TV rules) they still have an hint of the rockers they once were. ‘Never refuse champagne,’ Ian Glaice told me ‘or the opportunity to go for a wee.’ Surely that’s advice to live by? Watch the interview @france24 @encoref24 later this month. #deeppurple @deep_purple_fanpage #infinite #longgoodbyetour #rock #rocklegend #smokeonthewater #Paris #interview #musicinterview #englishgentlemen #oldrockers #originalrock” [Eve Jackson, 10th April] https://www.instagram.com/p/BStanZelQRz/
