Icon32 Rock behind the Iron Curtain

As you may know, Ian Gillan (during his 'holidays' from Purple) was one of the first rockers to tour the former USSR in 1990. Sometimes under travel conditions which made his band members' hair stand up.

The Armenian news agency Mediamax has quite an extensive overview about Ian's activities back then with some interesting behind-the-scenes clips

Seems that the tour must have been one big party for Ian.

Here is some rare fan-filmed footage about Ian's reception and a concert in the Republic of Dagestan

Thanks to perfect purple for pointing out the video.
