The bassplayer is in fact Bob Curiano: Sir Robert, from the good period of Blackmores Night. I've seen him a few times live: good bassplayer :thumbsup:

Bob is great - nice guy and solid bass player. Caught two shows with him back then and met him too.

According to Blabbermouth:


Blackmore plans to film and record the upcoming performances for future release.

Sounds like a real smart 'move'... :cool:

In the latest German interview Ritchie pointed out that Candice and another female singer will join the band as background singers, but they will definitely not play any BN songs. He's made up a list of 16/17 songs so far. He's pleased to return to Loreley as this is one of his fav arenas. If the reception from the fans is positive, he might consider doing a few more rock shows.

Tickets for BN gigs are available for

3rd July 2016 Magedeburg - Festung Mark
16th July 2016 Leipzig - Parkbühne (Clara Zetkin Park)

Listen to Ritchie and Candice talking about the new BN album and the rock shows on Rich Davenport's Rock Show

I would be really great if this thing works out and he will do some more Rainbow shows. Of course it will never be as good as the Dio and Powell times, but still nice to see Ritchie playing DP and Rainbow stuff again. Hopefully in nice indoor venues!

I wonder whether Ritchie will open the show in Birmingham with Highway Star and how much of it he will play... :) :) :) :) :)

:bouncer: :bouncer: :bouncer: :bouncer:

T :)

ps. I'm sad for JLT.

willem Dec-22-2015 2:29 PM

In my opinion JLT is a much better singer than Romero. JLT has a very own style (like it or not) and Romero is a cover-artist, trying to sing like Dio, JLT, Bonnet etc.

The April 2016 issue of Goldmine Magazine is on the market.

Coming on April 15th


Ritchie Blackmore sits down with Guitar Player for our May 2016 cover story to talk about his upcoming Rainbow gigs in Europe, where the British guitar icon will make his return to playing rock.

Obviously Ritchie is doing more press work for his old new baby Rainbow than for the latest BN album :p

In Germany a Rainbow special has been published in Good Times.

Now I really wonder what type of music you'll get to hear in June, John.
As Ritchie told the German weekly Welt am Sonntag (World on Sunday) of today, he loves German Schlager (pop music)! :rolleyes:


I know that the Germans are irritated by that: "You don't listen to that rubbish, do you?"
"Yes", I reply, "that's exactly what I'm doing."
He even remembered all the old names from the sixties which he heard during his Hamburg time.

Ritchie also told the newspaper that he receives four German TV channels and watches the Bundesliga (prime league). The good man is more German than I am :D

And he did not forget to mention that Dio was the best Rainbow singer for him! :bow:

Here is the full interview:

German Schlager became popular again through our new superstar Helene Fischer. Here she is with the song "Breathless though the night", a song which has been copied on the net by doctors on nightshift, policemen, firemen etc.
