Mexican tour

Tijuana poster 2018

The slightly disorganized Deep Purple’s Mexican tour in November has undergone a few changes. Several shows have been moved to other venues in the same cities, compared to what we reported earlier. Swedish metal band In Flames will be supporting the whole tour, while US radio personality Eddie Trunk is announced as a host for all dates but Tijuana. Both In Flames and Eddie Trunk sites list Cancun venue as Moon Palace Arena, albeit we have not been able to trace any tickets for these two shows yet.

Full details in our calendar.

We have no further tour dates for the band, neither confirmed nor leaked, so this Mexican leg of The Long Goodbye Tour could as well be the last one.

    Get your English right folks….. ‘has undergone’. If ot was in the past, it ‘underwent’

    Pay closer attention. Writing for the next album begins early 2019. It is very well not the last of things!

    Lol……quite right Doug. However……one was a typo, now corrected, the other is an inability to use English properly. …..big difference I think…..no excuse for incompetent use of English……Gillan would have a fit if he saw it on THS site!

    Eddie Trunk doesn’t even own a Deep Purple studio album; just a compilation.

    In the Tijuana/San Diego, CA/Ensenada/Mexicali area there is a well established fan base, also in Monterrey, Zapopan (Guadalajara), and Mexico City. But only god knows what will happen in the other cities, in particular Merida, I still can’t believe a show in such a traditional place, ¡and it could be the last show of their career!. I’ve just seen them in Chula Vista (San Diego, Ca) few days ago, and they were awesome and in perfect shape to a 3/4 full amphitheatre. Best wishes to them.
    By the way, finally, after a 7 year wait I took my 22 year old daughter to see them, and will make it twice, yes!!!!

    Do you know something about future tours in 2019, or could it really be their last proper tour, Rob Hodgkinson?
