Deep Purple adds second Israel gig

Veteran British rock band to perform at Tel Aviv's Nokia Arena on February 22, 23

VIDEO – Deep Purple is adding a second concert in Israel a day after its planned February 22 gig at Tel Aviv's Nokia Arena, the veteran British rock band said Sunday.



The February 23 performance will be held in the same venue. Ticket prices range from NIS 199 ($57) to NIS 999 ($286), depending on the seat's location in the arena.



The band will arrive in Israel as part of its "The Best of Deep Purple" concert tour, which will include performances of its greatest hits as well as songs from its new album, "Now What?!"


This is in fact Deep Purple's fourth visit to Israel. Its first performance in the country was in 1991. In 2008, the band members held a successful mini-concert tour in Caesarea and Tel Aviv, and returned again in 2011.


This time, the band will arrive directly after a concert in Bucharest, Romania, as part of its tour in Europe which includes Finland, Norway, Sweden, Denmark, Hungary and Serbia.


Since its establishment in 1968, Deep Purple has been among the leading names in the world of classic rock. The band has released some 20 studio album, live albums and different compilations.


Over the years the band split and reunited several times, with the last reunion taking place in 1994. Since then, its members have resumed their activity together, recording albums and going on concert tours.
