Russia, Ukraine & the Baltics 2002

Deep Purple are back in Eastern Europe. Jon Lord left the band after the UK tour, but in his place is the very excellent Don Airey, who also helped out last year. Please give him a nice welcome - and tell us what you think about the shows.

Send us your reviews. No attached Word files, and remember to include your full name and email address. Please be patient if your review does not appear on the site right away. Re-sending does not help..

This photo was taken by Mediagroup Objectiv at Kharkov, Ukraine 2002. See more photos from the tour. If you want your concert photos on The Highway Star, please send them to Svante Pettersson only
