Ritchie Blackmore's Rainbow UK Tour 2017 Following last month's tragic incident and the subsequent temporary closure of the main area outside the venue, Ritchie Blackmore’s Rainbow show on Thursday 22 June 2017 is unfortunately no longer able to take place at Manchester Arena. Other shows on Ritchie Blackmore’s Rainbow tour are not affected and will continue as planned.

From Rainbow - “Ritchie, all band members and management are sorry that this tragedy has occurred. Our heartfelt sympathy to all victims and everyone in Manchester”.

Following the triumphant sold-out show at the Birmingham Genting Arena earlier this year, Kennedy Street and Kilimanjaro are pleased to announce Ritchie Blackmore’s Rainbow will be returning to tour the UK in June 2017. The very special opening night will see them headlining the second annual Stone Free Festival at The O2, London, with further shows in Manchester, Glasgow and Birmingham.

Playing classics from both Rainbow and Deep Purple’s anthemic catalogue, the legendary guitarist needs no introduction and is universally acknowledged as a singular and visionary talent, one who has helped shape and define the landscape of rock music and the evolution of the guitar at its core. With a background immersed in classical and r’n’b he was a founding member and driving force of Deep Purple, going on to form Rainbow in 1973, who sold in excess of 28 million albums.
