Ritchie Blackmore's Rainbow Announce Third Show

(Classic Rock) Ritchie Blackmore's Rainbow have announced details of their much talked-about UK show. It will take place on Saturday June 25 2016 at the Genting Arena in Birmingham. The performance, which will celebrate the music of Rainbow and Deep Purple, will be Blackmore's first UK rock show in over 20 years.

"I just felt like playing some rock 'n' roll for a few days," says Blackmore, "just playing the old rock stuff, Purple stuff and Rainbow. I'm doing it for the fans, for nostalgia, and the singer I found is very exciting; he's a cross between Ronnie James Dio and Freddie Mercury.

"So this will mean exposing a new singer to the masses, and I'm sure he'll become pretty famous because of his voice." Details of the musicians joining Blackmore onstage will be announced on Wednesday, while tickets for the show will go on sale at 10am on Friday. Read more here.
