It is well known that the Woodstock and Altamont festivals in the late ’60s were out of control. Bad, brown acid that brought on paralysing bad trips, and a mud bath for a venue that deteriorated into a sewer, are nothing on DEEP PURPLE‘s tour of Jakarta in 1975. The band’s visit – the first to the Indonesian capital by a western rock band – began with excitement, intrigue and a tank-led motorcade from the airport, but soon descended into intimidation, reneged contracts, mayhem, riots, guard dogs, sabotage, death and jail. Welcome to Deep Purple’s Jakarta nightmare…..1975 is the working title and the treatment for the film is currently being written with various production companies in discussion for the rights to this incredible story. Stay tuned through 2013 for updates!
