Greece in May

Sao Paulo 2009 by Pedro Abib Cristales 1

The Greek Reporter announces four Greek dates for Deep Purple in May:

The tickets are supposed to go on sale on January 26. Athens, Patra and Thessaloniki shows will be opened by Vasilis Papakonstantinou, while George Gakis and the Troublemakers will open in Ioannina. Venue info for the last three shows is still to be figured out (and that’s where we are asking for your help as the referenced ticket vendor looks, well, all Greek to us).

Thanks to George Kikonishvili for the info.

    There seems to be more anticipation for new gigs now than the so called (suggested|optional) writing session.

    “The Anticipation” , nice new cd title?

    ” WritersBlock Solution” might be another.

    I’m glad about the Greece dates. I guess we have to accept that Purple are an economic unit who make more money on the road than a band who want to make a new album. It would be great to see them go back in the studio and deliver a kicking album again – redefining who they are (as Perpendicular did!). This seems to be the same for all bands of their vintage (look at Jethro Tull too!). The bottom line is I am glad they are still there, doing it (as we all are!).

    My sources may be wrong….so be it.

    One can only hope (those of us whom actually wish to see a future Purple).If the future foresees a MK8 record, then that is the future for Purple. Mk9 is OK too. Being it is Purple whom pulls the strings, either way, it will be good, guaranteed. It’s a Purple thing. Where it is, and where it should be. By the band at hand.


    Can’t wait.

    Greece is a wonderfull place verty scenic . Have been on some holiday’s there & wish i could go back & see thsese concerts! The group sound much better live than on studio albums. Prefer them to stick to the concerts.
    They sound more heavier plus lots more guitar work from Steve , & the songs come alive, when playing live. There last 2 studio album were not that fantastic, just a few good songs here & there.
