(Via Blabbermouth)In light of the ongoing Israeli assault in Lebanon, veteran rock act Deep Purple has decided to postpone their forthcoming tour dates there.
"It's in everyone's interest that a musical concert be a relatively peaceful event. Once they get things together and the situation settles down and the time is right, I'm sure we'll go back." Glover added, "It's a shame. I know the area quite well and Baalbeck is quite beautiful and very historic. I was actually looking forward to the concert."
In 1966, the band played a 9-week stint in Lebanon.
