Ten out of ten

Deep Purple live at Mahaffey Theater (St. Petersburg, USA 2022-02-12) My 10th time seeing Deep Purple perform. 1st time in that venue. The theatre hold a litttle over 2000 and appeared to be full.

Smoke on the Wiltern

Deep Purple live at The Wiltern (Los Angeles, USA 2019-09-04) Finally a headlining tour for the US so no shorter co-headlining sets. Actually got 85 minutes start to finish!!!

Fantastic (farewell?)

Deep Purple live at Fox Theatre (Detroit, USA 2019-10-15) After last nights performance I can’t help wondering (perhaps hoping) if there maybe yet another leg of this long goodbye tour.
