Deep Purple UK tour 2022 flyer

Just as Big Ian said today on the radio, the Deep Purple UK tour has been postponed to October 2022. The dates were originally booked for October 2020, rescheduled for October 2021 due to the pandemic, and now rescheduled yet again. Same 5 cities, a bit different running order: London on the 20th, Glasgow on 22nd, Leeds on 23rd, Birmingham on 25th, and Manchester on the 26th. All original tickets remain valid for the new dates. Full details in our calendar.

Thanks to BraveWords for the heads up.

    Whoosh! One of their finer albums and no tour, what a drag, what a waste. Great news, they´re intending to write new music. Is it possible to surpass the quality of Whoosh!? I am not sure, but, however, these gentlemen can surprise.

    No surprises there. I had no expectation they would tour this year. Most acts won’t.

    Ze Pürps & BÖC is almost as enticing a combo for me as the Purple/Priest one was. I still – in all innocence – think they should have called that tour “The Metal God: Knocking at your Back Door!”.

    Notwithstanding the glimmer of hope we see at the end of this Covid mess,it’ll be quite a while before I’ll be elbow to elbow with hundreds of concert goers. DVDs have been a saving grace.

    Hopefully, they will still know how to play the songs from Whoosh! then.

    And even more hopefully, we will still remember how they sound!

    Can you imagine if this pandemic had occurred 30 years ago, before the Internet really took off? There would be so little communication.

    @ 6…Not true. The Spanish flu happend in 1916 which back then there was very little information. No internet or other crap like facebook or instagram. People went on about their lives, no lockdowns, no facemask regulations and that virus killed many more people then this one.

    @7 Buttockss, So spot on! And the sheeple of the globe bow to The Fear Fools no longer behind closed doors.

    So sad here Stateside…. :<

    @6, @7 I can see where this discussion could end up. Let’s not go there. Keep the Covid discussion out of this and focus on the music. Cheers!

    Svante @9
    Sorry but what planet have you been living on the last 15 months.
    Music is not the issue here, think of the army of people working behind the scene in concerts from crew to technicians who are living in poverty with no help or support. To wait till 2022 is another stab in the heart.
    The pandamic is serious talk whether you accept it or not. Music is just the tool to get people together having fun but if it’s not played live then you know that the fun is gone.
    Peace and Love to one another cheers

    @7, @8. You should educate yourselves about the 1918-1919 flu pandemic before you comment. Cities across the country shut down churches and schools, and required residents to wear masks, quarantine and social distancing.

    The cities that took these measured fair better and the one who delayed fairs worse. https://www.nationalgeographic.com/history/article/how-cities-flattened-curve-1918-spanish-flu-pandemic-coronavirus

    Anti-Lockdown protests led cities to rescinding those orders measure too soon which resulted in more waves of disease. https://www.nbcnews.com/politics/politics-news/breaking-point-anti-lockdown-efforts-during-spanish-flu-offer-cautionary-n1202111
