Enjoyably Paicey – Oslo

I live in the UK, but have traveled to the Oslo Spektrum twice now to see Purple. I’m not great at remembering setlists, but as far as I remember, it was identical to the one already listed for the Copenhagen concert, with the exception of Hush being replaced by Speed king. Apart from a few […]

Magic from Brussels

At last! A DP concert! Can you believe it?! I’ve been a fan of DP since 1974 , and I still didn’t manage to attend any of their concerts (don’t be surprised, I live in Iraq, and so I think you can imagine the efforts I needed to attend DP concerts). But at last my […]

Tulips – Amsterdam

It was a difficult time counting the days before we could see our beloved Deep Purple guys again, the twelfth concert for my wife and myself since the Concerto concert in Rotterdam 2000. We were very excited to hear at least some of the new songs live for the first time. My brother was with […]

IIIIAAAUUU – Copenhagen

Having read Rasmus Heide’s review there is not so much more to say. Yes, it was great. It seemed to me that Gillan’s voice wasn’t at the top from the start, especially in Wrong Man and Ted, but after being screeming Living Wreck the whole way through, ending up with to long IIIIAAAUUU, it worket […]

Purple rock the Heineken! – Amsterdam

January 26, 2006, cold outside, especially when you’re waiting! 6.30pm opening of the doors and the audience, a lot of “Too Old Too Rock & Roll, Too Young Too Die” but also younger ones, even children (begged by their parents to come with them*) all searching for a nice place. The support-act in Amsterdam is […]

Better with age – Amsterdam

Like wine – the older they get, the better they are! It was a sold out concert in Amsterdam and it was a long time a go that Purple was here, according to Ian Gillan. The set list was almost similar to Brussels. Compare with that list, they added the songs Mary Long and Kiss […]

Really spectacular – Amsterdam

Yesterday I went to my first Deep Purple concert since the Concerto Tour in 2000. I was willing to see them again, just because I really admire the new album Rapture of the Deep, but also because I wanted to see them play in the Heineken Music Hall. Everything was very, very good. The atmosphere, […]

Ian Gillan Interview

Jeb Wright at “Classic Rock Revisited” did an interview with Ian Gillan recently. Here is a few bits: I think the way Purple goes about their business – we just don’t want to be called a classic rock band. I don’t really mind it but I just want to make that point. We are going […]
