Deep Purple is hot in chilly Iceland


Iceland maybe a small nation, but not without it’s passions. We’ve been informed that May 27 show in Reykjavik is already almost sold out and Deep Purple has sold the most tickets by single band in Iceland beating bands such as Metallica, Roger Waters, Foo Fighters, Led Zeppelin, Incubus, Bryan Adams, Iron Maiden and many more.

Thanks to Simsmiðurinn for the info.

    I visited Reykjavik in the late 90s and I was very pleasantly surprised by the city with its nice coffee shops & vegetarian restaurants and its people who appeared to be very fashionable and cool.

    It does not surprise me that they would appreciate GREAT music.

    Actually it took only NINE minutes to sell 1500 tickets in the Mastercard-presale. Next day the remaining 3500 were on sale and it didn’t take much longer.
    I hope to see Gillan’s Inn some time as well.

    No wonder Purple are big in Iceland, like us Swedes they’re vikings and we vikings always had good taste.

    Hear, hear igge.

    Purple is very popular in Denmark also;-) all the shows I have attended the last few years have been sold out.

    Vikings have superb taste!

    Iceland is a cold place. Cold as ice is a Foreigner song .The winter is cold.
    Johnny Winter is cool. But i prefer Deep Purple

    Hi. I come from Iceland, and did go to the concert (of course). But i would REALLY like to get my hands on videos or something from the concert… recording perhaps? Any hints on how to?

    (By the way… Iceland isn’t as cold as you might think. in the summers we get up to 20 – 30 °c but in the winters it is about -3 to – 20. There is a saying in Iceland: Ef þér líka ekki veðrið á Islandi, bíddu þá í fimm mínútur. Translation: If you don’t like the weather in Iceland, wait five minuets. It’s true… rain, sun, snow, rain again and sun… all in abour an hour.)
