Icon34 Glenn to appear at DP convention

Wymer UK is pleased to announce a Deep Purple convention celebrating the momentous occasion of forty years since the inception of this classic hard rock band with a 12-hour marathon of all things Purple.

The event will be held on Saturday 3rd May at Esquires Club in Bedford, just 40 minutes from London St Pancras railway station.

Unlike most conventions we are also pleased to announce that there will be appearances from two former band members:

- Glenn Hughes will be making a personal appearance with a Q and A session as well as doing a unique acoustic performance of classic MKIII and IV songs.

- Original Purple bassist Nick Simper will be performing with his band the Good Old Boys.

- Rounding off the live music will be a set of Purple classics performed by Burn, with Nick Simper joining them for some MKI numbers!

In addition to this there will be guest speakers including Ian Hansford (Purple roadie from 1968-73) and Ritchie Blackmore’s former personal assistant, Rob Fodder.

During the day there will be video screenings of rare material, plus competitions, trade stalls and of course topping it all off the live music (as listed above) in the evening, finishing around midnight.

A splendid day is guaranteed for all Purple fans so come along, meet other like-minded fans and join in the fun. The Esquires club is an intimate venue and tickets are limited so order now to avoid disappointment.

Tickets can be ordered online from the MBTP Store.

For more information on the event check out the following link: http://moreblackthanpurple.co.uk/convention.htm

More details will also be published in the forthcoming issue of More Black than Purple, which has been slightly delayed so all the latest on the convention can be included.

Rob

Anyone from here planning on going? Sounds like a rare opportunity, what with the planned Q&A and acoustic set.

The organizers say the live music will be in the evening, for now, can't be more helpful than that I'm afraid.

But GLENN will be the first on, from what I understand.

As part of the Convention celebrations, www.deeppurple.com have announced that they will be offering two VIP Packages to the Deep Purple show in London on July 30th, which we will be raffling on the day.

The 'Purple Envy' packages include early entry to the venue, an exclusive merchandise package, a backstage tour, and a meet & greet with band members.

*The package does not include a ticket to the show, the winners would need to purchase tickets elsewhere
