Le sourire du plaisir in Brussels

It was the fifth time I saw Deep Purple since 2006. I could compare the quality of the show compared to other concerts and it was excellent!
The most fascinating thing is to see members of the group with a permanent smile, it’s a real pleasure to see.
I was on the front which is not the best place for sound, but the sound was good nonetheless be distinguished perfectly all instruments.
The room was packed and the audience was enthusiastic.
The set list has not changed: intro Fireball, Into the Fire, Hard Lovin’ Man Maybe I’m a Leo Strange Kind and other great classics except Highway Star.
Steve was brilliant as usual, nothing to say, he made a solo ultra melodic but also technical and it was beautiful to ear.
Gillan was in really good form conducting cries without any problem!
I was impressed by Paice’s solo in the Mule, Don was fantastic too and he showed the extent of his talent especially with the improvisation in Hush with Steve.
Roger embodies the rhythm, he rocked the room in the introduction of Black night when he made a solo.
The modesty of these guys is impressive. These are people who have marked the history of music, they invented a style, they made a song
40 years ago still known by everyone today. And yet they constantly play with a smile, they are an example for a lot of musicians today!
This is definitely the best Deep Purple concert I’ve seen in my life.

    ……………..yes, that’s really true, I saw a very superb show in Munich too. I saw them over the last 40 years every time they played in Munich (startet on January 21th 1973) and rare that they have played so well as now.
    Highway Star was also not played during the Munich-gig. I think that Gillans voice no longer grabs.
