    What a great news. So, there will be a new live recording coming out later on. Hope they will do special show by selecting a lot of rarely heard songs! Demon’s Eye, Fools, Never Before, Rat Bat Blue, Our Lady, Loosen my Strings, Doing it Tonight, just to suggest a few.

    These Radio 2 shows are usually filmed and often streamed on the BBC / Radio 2 web site.

    Hope they stick (in the main, if not totally) to Morse era songs.

    Ian Gillan did a phone-in interview on Simon Mayo’s Drivetime on Radio 2 on Thursday when the 16th November In Concert show was announced. Fast-forward to around 16 and a half minutes in. http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/b0964sx3

    Probably gonna be the best gig of the tour, a tiny venue (400 approx) and apt as they used to appear on BBC radio often, back when they started. A nice nod towards the past and hinting i guess at the full circle they have arrived at…
