Ritchie Blackmore has revealed that a "new-look Rainbow lineup" could indeed perform live again. However, the guitarist has made it clear that any future performances will include fewer Deep Purple classics in the set.
Blackmore was the main driving force behind Rainbow's two surprise appearances at Germany's Monsters Of Rock and a show at Birmingham's Genting Arena last month. But following these shows he appeared to refute the idea of any more gigs by claiming;
'I thought I'd just get back to playing the old songs one more time. My commitment lies with Blackmore's Night '“ this is just a few dates for fun.'
