Lost socks in Munich

After the Rocky Alice Cooper Horror Show we had to wait a little while. The tension was high. And then… They started and the sold out Olympiahalle exploded. A few bars of Pictures of Home and we were immediately in. You could see them, hear them,feel their music: THE GODFATHERS OF ROCK. Imagine: There is […]

Box of rock – Katowice

I heard my favourite band in Spodek once again. Actually it was my third concert of DP. The support band was SBB, polish rock dinosaurs. They warmed the audience quite well. The drum duet solo at the end of the performance was excellent. But of course everybody was waiting for the main dish. The Purples […]

Rapturous Magic in Katowice

The performance was spotless. It was loud. The band is in a class of its own. The Purps started about 9 p.m. But before Them we could hear the polish band SBB. With all the respect to Jozef Skrzek and the rest of musicians their performance wasn’t what I expected.. The sound was poor. Skrzek’s […]

Auf Deutsch – Linz

Was mir sehr gelegen kam waren die beiden riesigen Videoleinwände am Bühnenrand, so daß ich mit meinem Handy ein paar Fotos machen konnte! Auf fiel mir, daß Steve Morse mit neuem Gitarren-Equipment spielte. Er fiedelte auch nicht mehr so wie früher von Anfang bis zum Ende, das tlw. recht anstrengend war. Er klang wesentlich härter […]

Perfect – but no Strangers! – Linz

We enjoyed this perfect band in Linz, where Airey, Gillan, Glover, Morse and Paice held the audience for about 2 (!) hours. The concert started at 9 p.m. with a video-sequence. The members of the band came out of a box and entered the stage. Nice! The sound was very good, clear and powerful from […]

“Ausverkaut” in Mannheim

Das kann man wörtlich nehmen. Ausverkauf ivon DP in Mannheim. So ein schlechtes Konzert habe ich nie gehört. Was mutet DP den Fans in den oberen Rängen zu. Ian Gillans Gesang war nicht zu höhren. Die Instrumente klangen wie bei einem illegalen Mitschnitt. Von dem Schall der immer zurück kam ganz zu schweigen. Die schlechteste […]

Von 1973 bis 2006 – Zürich

Am 18.3.1973 sah ich Deep Purple zum ersten mal im Hallenstadion in Zürich. Unzählige super Konzerte von Deep Purple fanden Jahr für Jahr in dieser Halle statt. Nun wurde das Hallenstadion modern umgebaut und hat Platz für 13 000 Fans. Es ist Sonntag Abend 19.2.2006. Der Weg zum Hallenstadion versetzt mich natürlich in die Vergangenheit. […]

Satisfying – Helsinki

I saw Deep Purple live in Helsinki on the 1st of February… The concert venue was the icehall of Helsinki. The place was full. There were only like twenty free spots in the hall. I don’t know the exact size of the audience, but I think there were about 7.000 people. The warmup band Crazy […]
