Czech media reports that Deep Purple will play at the opening ceremony for the World Championship in Nordic skiing. The championship opens on February 18 at the Tipsport Arena in Liberec, Czech Republic. Deep Purple’s appearance was announced by Kateřina Neumannová, president of the local organizing committee, and so far is not confirmed by either the Deep Purple management or the International Ski Federation.

According to the Argentinian promoters, the next scheduled Purple concert will be on February 20 in Buenos Aires.

Thanks to czech-netz.com for the info.

    I think my favorite sport in the Olympics is the one in which you make your way through the snow, you stop, you shoot a gun, and then you continue on. In most of the world, it is known as the biathlon, except in New York City, where it is known as winter

    I like cross-country skiing, it’s damn good basic exercise in many ways.Into the sauna afterwards, and you feel like a new man. Yep.

    Why is it always Europe all of the time ? In Australia at the moment they have had these Big Days Out concerts . Which are out door shows with lots of bands that tour the main capitals. Neil Young is involved and Red Hot Chilli Peppers one year. Deep Purple in this would go down really well with the young crowd, i would really like to see them participate in this ,it’s made for them & they would be the headline act. But as usual they are dead here , all you hear is Black Night & Smoke On The Water On Water on the radio & they are from how long ago ! You wouldn’t know they still exits with a modern day element to them Steve Morse’s guitar.

    Answer to your blanket jabs like a man why don’t you… some true words to back them somehow would be a wise place to start, instead of the sick one liners.
