Ritchie Blackmore Announces 1st Rainbow and Deep Purple Concert
Tickets for the rare rock event by the founding member of Deep Purple will go in sale November 6. "I am doing four dates in June, which will be all rock," Blackmore tells Noisey.
"I have the band basically together and it will be Rainbow and Deep Purple. It's just having fun but it's only four dates in Europe. I don't want to do anymore because I take what I'm doing now much more seriously."
Since 1997, Blackmore has been focusing his energies on Blackmore's Night, a medieval folk band he formed with then-girlfriend and now-wife Candice Night. Read more here.
