Full page ad in major newspaper for Ian Paice show in Stockholm

Posted: November 30, 2019 in Classic Rock, Cool stuff, Deep Purple Family

You almost have to see it to believe it. Ian Paice will perform in Stockholm (Sweden) at Fryshuset with Deep Purple cover band Purpendicular on January 30, and a full page ad about the event was published two days ago in the biggest newspaper in the country, Expressen. Ads of this size are fairly rare unless you are a major act so this sticks out a mile. But I have to say that it is quite nice to see such a big ad for an event like this. It is also billed as Best Of Classic Deep Purple, which reminds us of what Glenn Hughes has been up to recently. Ian Paice has a long history of going out with cover bands just for fun, but maybe he is setting himself up for a future without Deep Purple now? And maybe Purpendicular will be part of that in a big way.
