    Glad to see several of the Boys taking time out for other projects outside the parent band.Maybe this will recharge their Hard Rock batteries for the recording of the new album later this year. What with 5 – 7 years between recordings these days this may very well be (sadly) the last Deep Purple Album.

    Obviously they’ll perform Tolo Marton and Deep Purple’s stuff!

    @mk. Maybe you are not Italian and you don’t know him.
    It’s not a “cover band”, it’s a guitar player, a great guitar player.
    He was the winner of “Jimi Hendrix Electric Guitar Competition” organized by Fender USA and Jimi’s father and sister.
    It’s NOT a Deep Purple gig, it’s a rock gig and Tolo Marton it’s the right man at the right place.

    If it is not a Deep Purple gig, why then the trailer?
    Interesting only MK 2 was featured in it.

    So little time, so much good music.

    Really? You need to ask this question? The bill shows Roger Glover ‘of Deep Purple’ as the main performer. Obviously due to being the bass player for ‘Deep Purple’ as good promotion. Also obvious in promotion would be to use the most ‘familiar’ aspects of the performer’s background…..

    It isn’t Rocket Science.
