DEEP PURPLE frontman Ian Gillan is reportedly planning a solo tour of Australia in January/February in support of his "Gillan's Inn" album. Exact cities and dates will be announced soon.Gillan recently completed a five-week North American run to promote "Gillan's Inn", which he released to celebrate 40 years in the music business. The CD, which came out in April, spans the four decades of Gillan's professional life and features some of his friends as guest performers, including his mates in DEEP PURPLE, the GOO GOO DOLLS, and singer-guitarist Jeff Healey, among many others. "Gillan's Inn" is a DualDisc, and the DVD side has a track-by-track commentary from Gillan, along with scenes from the recording sessions, rare live footage, and other extras. DEEP PURPLE recently resumed its two-year-long world tour behind its latest album, "Rapture of the Deep".
