    that would be awesome if they came to america (only if they had the great lineup w/ blackmore, lord, gillan etc. again, though)
    DP are probably the most touring band ever! They have not had a year without tours lately. And they absolutely love touring the former Eastern block. Which gave me a chance to seeing them live
