There will be no “Smoke on the Water” over the “White City”

The British music group Deep Purple, is an iconic rock band formed in Hertford, England back in 1968.

Considered to be among the pioneers of heavy metal and modern hard rock (although their musical approach changed over the years), Deep Purple was supposed to have confirmed a feature presentation in Merida, Yucatán on Saturday November 21, but the show was canceled at the last minute due to logistics reasons. The concert was scheduled for the Carta Clara Entertainment Center.

The Inflames and Eddie Trunk were supposed to be the opening acts for the legendary group, one of the pioneers of heavy rock.

Through a statement on their Facebook page, the Carta Clara Entertainment Center management informed that the tickets for the presentation will be valid for the concert that Deep Purple will offer in Cancun on November 24. Although they also offered reimbursement of the total cost of the ticket.

Last week, on Saturday November 17 , the band delighted thousands of fans in a concert at the Mexico City Arena.
