Deep Purple members to appear in finale of Isreali TV series Atlantica

Deep Purple members Ian Gillan and Roger Glover will make a cameo appearance on the Isreali TV series, “Atlantica.”

The Hollywood Reporter says
“Atlantica” revolves around an aspiring underdog rock band from Jerusalem, managed by a high-school history teacher played by popular Israeli comedian and rock enthusiast Tal Friedman.

Gillan and Glover will appear in the series’ final episode as the aspiring Jerusalem rockers locate their idols and beg to join them on stage.

Shooting of the cameo appearances will take place this weekend, in between the band’s two scheduled concerts at Tel Aviv’s Nokia Arena.

In real life, Friedman and his band The Fat Cats will serve as Deep Purple’s warm-up act before their Saturday show.

Deep Purple has been on tour since February 2013 in support of the band's 19th studio album, “Now What?!”
