Nothing on the band’s own website yet, but according to the Genting Arena website, Mostly Autumn will be the support for Ritchie Blackmore’s Rainbow in June.
Mostly Autumn have supported Ritchie Blackmore in the past, when Bryan, Heather and Angela played as an acoustic trio supporting Blackmore’s Night on a UK tour. But getting this prestigious arena gig is still a major coup.
Update: Now confirmed by the band:
We are very proud to announce that Mostly Autumn, as a four piece, have been invited and confirmed, to be the support for Ritchie Blackmore’s Rainbow on June 25th 2016 at the Birmingham Genting Arena.
Our most sincere and heartfelt thanks go to all in the Ritchie Blackmore camp for this incredible opportunity. As you may well know Ritchie Blackmore has been a major influence on me ever since I was a child, in fact, one of the main reasons I picked up a guitar in the first place all those years ago.
This will be very special for so many reasons.
Hope to see you there..
