Much older tours...


To wind down after more than four years of non-stop touring with Deep Purple (or maybe to warm-up before recording the next studio album!?), Ian Paice stuck a few solo shows onto the end of Purple's final show in Athens.

Some of the shows featured Don Airey together with local DP tribute bands and/or Ian on his own - please check the reviews below for specific details of each show.

We also have short reports from a couple of shows that Roger Glover and Jon Lord appeared at during October.
