Deep Purple have announced their UK arena tour, with Blue Öyster Cult in support, will now go ahead in October 2022.
Deep Purple’s five-date Whoosh! UK arena tour will now take place two years later than planned in October 2022.
In a statement, Deep Purple said: “The health and safety of all our fans, crew and fellow bandmates is our priority and so we are very sad and disappointed that due to the ongoing difficulties of the COVID-19 virus our UK tour has been postponed and rescheduled to October 2022. All tickets including the VIP experience remain valid and we can’t wait to see you all where we can celebrate and finally bring the house down safely. Thank you for all your loyalty and support.”
Commenting on Blue Öyster Cult’s special guest slot, vocalist Eric Bloom said: “I am personally thrilled to be playing with Deep Purple again. As a fan of their music, I’ll be sure to stay and watch their show nightly.”
