…And so is Cancun

Cancelled :-(

Hot on the heels of yesterday news of Merida cancellation, we are sorry to bring you news of another one: the final show of the Mexican tour in Cancun this weekend has also been cancelled. Eddie Trunk tweeted:

Just found out the final show of this @_DeepPurple tour here in Cancun on Saturday is now cancelled. Thanks to the entire Purple & @InFlames_SWE crew & all the amazing Mexican fans. Headed home now tomorrow in time for Thanksgiving.

Well, if there’s one positive thing that can come out of it, it’s that this may give the band another incentive to tour in the future. Because it would be a real shame if Deep Purple live legacy would end under such circumstances.

Thanks to Rob Hodgkinson for the heads up.

    Why you guys continue to linking this nonsense as “last planned gig” when the guys said plenty of times they will go on for few years more… shame

    Hristo Yankov because it is called the long goodbye tour and yes although it will most likely go through 2020, it is technically the final tour of deep purple

    Chris Sigman it is still no proper answer, right?

    Hristo where is it quoting “Last planned gig”?

    Last gig of current Mexican leg of tour, not whole tour!

    Don’t know where you got ‘last planned gig’ from Hristo…….making things up and then criticising based on that is the sort of thing Trump does 😆

    Una gran tristeza y decepción, tenía comprado mis boletos hace meses, teníamos la ilusión mis hijos y yo de verlos en vivo y en directo, me parece muy difícil que puedan regresar a México 🇲🇽., Seguirán en mi ♥️, el resto de mi vida, como mi banda favorita.

    Is everyone ok?

    It should be known that ALL the cancelled shows were down to total incompetence, lies and dishonesty on the promoters part. Nothing whatsoever to do with the band, crew or management. There will be more.

    Rob Hodgkinson I think everyone is aware the guys willing and maybe already making plans for New tour. Ths team few times sounds a bit like yellow paper, so weird

    Yes, maybe for Mexico it was the last planned Tour.

    I guess Mexico is a mexi-NO!…

    this really shouldn’t surprise anyone…disappointed if you had tickets, yes! but not really surprised!

    I suppose the questions the remain are:

    were the shows that went ahead good (or better great)?
    did the boys (including the crew) get paid or are they out of pocket?

    and most important
    do they want to carry on?

    From the interviews they all sounded in fine fettle and looked liek they still enjoy being together.

    You’ve understood it incorrectly Hristo……I can see why though. No, it’s not the end of touring for the band 🙂

    Rob Hodgkinson I think I got it perfectly right… just please re-read the last two sentences from the print screens above… can I call them “speculations”? Be safe

    Rob Hodgkinson says:

    Speculate away Hristo 🙂

    PJ Mikey says:

    I believe it’s due to the unrest in Mexico right now. One of their shows was supposed to be tijuana which was canceled as we’re a couple more causing shows to be moved.

    @ 22 ” Mexico is Bannanas ” LOL!!

    Maybe they should’ve played at Rosa’s Cantina instead!
    @6 enough of that …
