From Royal Albert Hall to Kleine Scheidegg

Deep Purple have been quite conspicuously absent from the list of confirmed performers when Sunflower Jam tickets went on sale earlier this month. That is, until yesterday:

Deep Purple will be performing songs that honour and remember Jon Lord and the band will also perform with the Orion Orchestra, led by conductor Paul Mann, meaning that we are offering you a chance to experience a special, unique, one-off performance by Deep Purple.

Our guess for the cause of delay is that the management had to work out the logistics of getting the band and the crew from London to the mountain pass in Kleine Scheidegg, Switzerland, where they are performing the very next afternoon on April 5. The band is returning to Kleine Scheidegg, where they have already played the aptly named Snowpen Air back in 2000.

    Well, since I’m in the area… Given that I am travelling halfway around the planet to attend the RAH then a short trip to Switzerland shouldn’t be too much of a stretch, or will it. Any suggestions about travelling from London to Kleine Scheidegg?

    WHAT A PERFECT OPPORTUNITY TO MAKE JON’S DREAM OF HAVING ALL MUSICIANS OF DEEP PURPLE PERFORMING ON THE SAME STAGE TOGETHER COME TRUE…!!!

    @ DeepOz

    Kleine Scheidegg is in The Bernese Overland and is about 4 hours by train from either Geneva or Zurich.

    When in Switzerland I have not had delays, but they can happen.

    You would have to leave Heathrow Airport at 07:00 to fly to geneva or 07:10 for Zurich.

    Depending on show times you might not actually make it in time.

    I expect that the band would take a private jet to Interlaken and travel by train from there.
