Deep Purple is currently in the midst of a concert tour in France. Lead singer Ian Gillan said recently that the group was planning to release a new album next year, followed by a concert tour.


The British band already performed in Caesarea and Tel Aviv about two years ago. Ynet critic Guy Benyovits lauded the concert, writing that "it proved that the rock dinosaurs called Deep Purple is still alive, at least in terms of its sweeping connection with the audience."


Tickets for the concert are on sale at the Castel ticket office in Tel Aviv. Prices range between NIS 360-810 about ($100-225).
