Deep Purple Set For U.S. “Long Goodbye” Tour Via 33 Dates
May 6, 2019 – The “Long Goodbye Tour” started in May, 2017 now the band will return to the US and there’s plenty of Dates plus special VIP packages to get closer to the band.

It kicks off on September 3rd in Riverside, California until six weeks later in Minneapolis, Minnesota.

Some fans are speculating if this is truly the end. Unlike 10 years ago when band, at least, seemed to mean it when they said it, groups insinuating a final tour might not have much of a choice. Bassist Roger Glover told Billboard that fans would have to make up their own minds and they didn’t want to stop but they are not young men. In other words if you really want to see the band another time or for the first time you might not want to wait.

I’m just glad that lead vocalist Ian Gillan, Glover on bass and drummer Ian Paice on drums are still with us. That’s three of the five members of their classic lineup that gave us albums like, 1970’s “Deep Purole In Rock,” “Fireball” from 1971, “Machine Head” and “Made in Japan from 1972. Keyboardist Jon Lord died in 2012 and guitarist Ritchie Blackmore left in the mid seventies, came back in the mid-eighties but left after 9 years. – by John Beaudin
