Forest National, Brussels, Belgium
I had the chance to stand near the stage during the gig. Deep Purple gave a great concert last night in Brussels. After a powerful start (Fireball, Into the fire and Hard lovin’man), they gave us a wonderful “strange kind of woman”. All the members were in great shape and Gillan’s voice was great, too. There were also other highlights, such as a wonderful version of “wasted sunsets”. During the solo’s, Don Airey played “ne me quitte pas” from Jacques Brel : brilliant! The good thing is that the band really rocks : hard rock as it was in the beginning. All the setlist was from the 70’s and 80’s. I never heard Steve Morse playing as heavy as he did yesterday. DP were enjoying themselves and the response of the audience (Forest National was full) was enthousiastic. We had a great time, so don’t hestitate, go to see them and enjoy!
