Ritchie Blackmore has released an official band photo (see above) of his Ritchie Blackmore’s Rainbow, whom are scheduled to play at two Monsters Of Rock festivals in Germany on June 17th and 18th and one UK show on June 25th in England at Birmingham Genting Arena.

Blackmore explained that he picked this lineup because “the whole idea was to find good musicians. Of course, there were many familiar names around, but this idea didn’t appeal to me. Unlike many others, I prefer to discover new musicians who can add a fresh approach to my music. It’s great to present new musicians to the public.”

He also added that the band might add more shows “if we enjoy ourselves and the audience gives us a positive vibe back…But the crucial factor will be the chemistry between the musicians and the audience reaction.”

  1. I’m a little confused. The last couple comments I’ve made on this page didn’t get posted for some reason, so let me try it again. I made a comment joking about Elliot’s ‘no wood, man’ comment, and I thought maybe I forgot to hit ‘post’, so I reiterated my comment from a few days ago yesterday, and told Elliot It was odd that I don’t remember saying anything about hall & oates but that i did see that they are playing somewhere, maybe Syracuse or turning stone. Been having some issues with my pc and need to get the bugs worked out. Maybe that’s why my comments got lost. We’ll see if this one works.

    1. greg, I think your ‘no wood man’ post got lost in the mail, but thanks for your support. also, my hall and oates comment referred to the h2o in your username. I don’t always hit home runs, but when I do…

    2. Greg,

      The site is in the process of an update. So, not only have some comments disappeared, but news stories as well.

      D 🙂

  2. That makes sense Dana, gotta love technology, good thing our lives don’t depend on it, well maybe it does for some, lol. And Elliot, I don’t always drink beer, but when I do……I do a damn good job of it!! LOL
