Russia: Deep Purple Coming to Moscow in April!

Hello,
Windows to Russia!
Deep Purple is coming again this year to Russia. They will give two concerts in Moscow on April 18th and 19th of this year. Deep Purple is Russian President Dmitry Medvedev’s favorite musical group and in February 2008, the band made their first ever appearance in Moscow Kremlin at the personal request of Dmitry Medvedev.

Last year, Deep Purple toured 11 cities in Russia and Ukraine from October 12 through 28. All of the concerts on last year’s tour were sold out and Deep Purple played the “Best of the Best” that was recorded by them between 1968 and 2008.”

Formed in Hartford, England, in 1968, Deep Purple along with Led Zeppelin and Black Sabbath, are considered to be among the pioneers of heavy metal and modern hard rock, and were once listed by the Guinness Book of World Records as the world’s loudest band.
