British Rock Legends Deep Purple Return to Israel

The latest internationally famous rock band to visit Israel will be Deep Purple. The pioneering British musical act will play Nokia Arena in Tel Aviv on February 22, 2014. This will be their fourth performance in Israel, the previous two being in 2011, 2008, and in 1991. Preceding their 2011 concert, drummer Ian Paice stated that groups who cancel their Israeli tour dates for political reasons are "real wimps," according to Haaretz news from May 11th, 2011.
