Live spectacular

The Purple Armadillo is the only place for the guys to play - don't ever let the management persuade them to play in the SECC.

Of all the times I've seen Purple this was the best - the guys were really enjoying themselves and Morse has given them a new lease of life (Ritchie who?). I can now understand why they keep rocking - it took 20 years off me and Gillan's voice was pitch perfect.

Being Jon's last tour I could understand the 'greatest hits' format and Highway Star, Space Truckin' and Perfect Strangers were awesome. Next time, hopefully, we'll hear the new material such as Well Dressed Guitar (incredible playing by Steve) and the return of Seventh Heaven and some of the rarer items from the back catalogue.

No band in the world can match them live - awesome! Only one moan - £10 for a programme!
