DEEP PURPLE 'FOR ONE NIGHT ONLY' - JUST TWENTY COPIES LEFT BEFORE IT GOES OUT OF PRINT

deep purple

A strictly limited edition (300 only), hardback 128 page book, individually numbered and signed by the author and housed in a sturdy flight case including four A4 frameable prints chronicling Deep Purple's huge day out at Knebworth on 22nd June 1985 was released on December 9th and there are just twenty copies remaining.

This hardback 128 page book was a strictly limited edition of 300 with each one individually numbered and signed by the author. Complete with a sturdy flight case this special item also comes with four A4 frameable prints reproduced on quality 400gsm premium board. The book contains a foreword by Roger Glover.

Deep Purple came to an end in 1976 but MkII reunited in 1984 for the 'Perfect Strangers' album and toured America and Japan before reaching Europe in June 1985.

They played four sold out shows in Sweden, two large festivals in Germany, three gigs in France and many more around the continent, however in their homeland fans had to settle for just one open-air concert at Knebworth House in Hertfordshire.

It was the wettest June day since records began but for the 75,000 who attended it was an experience to savour, with many too young to have seen Purple in the seventies, witnessing them for the first time.

'For One Night Only' is a celebration of that day, based around the huge number of previously unpublished photos of the event, including images from Pete Still and George Bodnar whose photos were used on Purple's official 'In The Absence Of Pink' album, which was recorded at Knebworth 85.

According to then-Sounds photographer Tony Mottram, who had braved the weather all day, just prior to Purple taking the stage, they were all moved from the press pit. Fortunately it didn't deter the photographers too much and whilst some took photos from further back, Alan Perry had wormed his way into the front of the crowd to take his shots.

Mick Gregory however was fortunate enough to be allowed to stand on Jon Lord's side of the stage and his photos offer a different perspective.

'For One Night Only' also looks at the build up and the aftermath with the story told by Purple aficionado Jerry Bloom. Drawing on interviews and memories from the band and crew it also includes personal recollections from the photographers, the band, the fans and much more.

deep purple

All purchasers of 'For One Night Only' can enter a competition to list all the Deep Purple song titles that can be found in the introductory chapter of the text and the first three successful entrants will win a 50% refund on the book price.

Considering used ticket stubs for the gig are often sold on eBay for £20 or more, we feel that this is a superb opportunity to own what will inevitably become a collector's item in its own right.

These last twenty copies will sell quickly and once they are gone that's it, the book is out of print so order now and get it delivered before Christmas. Just click the 'Buy Now' button here.

WACKEN WINTER NIGHTS IS HEAVY METAL WONDERLAND

wacken

Wacken Winter Nights 2018 takes place between February 23rd and 25th 2018 and the great news is that you can now experience a full-on, top class German Metal Festival easily and affordably.

It only takes an hour to fly to Hamburg from London and we've had longer journeys than that within the capital and they were certainly more expensive than the £33 air ticket that just appeared in our 'flights to Wacken Winter Nights' search.

wacken

Wacken Winter Nights is organised by the same team who are responsible for the world's greatest Metal festival, Wacken-Open-Air and the 2018 bill includes Skyclad, Orphaned Land, Elvenking, Finntroll, Grave Digger, Aeverium, Comes Vagantes, Coppelius, Corvus Corax, Die Pressgëng, Elvellon, Heimataerde, Hell-O-Matic, Ignis Fatuu, Ingrimm, Irdorath, Johnny Deathshadow, Krayenzeit, Letzte Instanz, Mr Hurley und die Pulveraffen, Pampatut, Pat Razket, Schandmaul, Sündenrausch, The Aberlour's, The Moon And The Nightspirit, Torfrock, Visions Of Atlantis, Vroudenspil, Wind Rose and more.



Besides this rich billing of superb Metal bands, there is so much more to see in the festival area including the medieval market and also the walking acts and jugglers you will meet at the theme worlds, including Robert Blake, three-time World Cup winner of street magic.

Wacken Winter Nights is something not to be missed and you can check out the amazing ticket and accommodation prices right here.

We just priced up the whole four day trip with hotels, flights, shuttles and festival tickets for less than £300 and we don't think you will get a better value festival than that, anywhere.

MetalTalk recently sat down with Wacken founder and owner Thomas Jensen and that interview will be online next week and it's a fascinating insight into how Wacken originated from nothing to become the world's premiere Heavy Metal event.
