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, […]

Magnificient – Brussels

A few years ago in Lichtenvoorde at the Arrow Festival I was hugely disappointed. A very obligatory set, no inspiration. I thought they had lost it, and told myself, ‘no more Purple concerts.’ I’ve seen them many times and it is enough. BOY, WAS I WRONG! The album Rapture of the Deep was too good […]

Furious applause – Brussels

I arrived at 19:10 at the sold out venue. First things first: getting me a new T-shirt. They are quite nice, I’ve seen a lot worse Deep Purple T-shirts (with dragons, etc.) The long sleeve I bought is a real nice one, it is one of the most beautiful ones I have in my Deep […]

10,000 people conquered by the winning team – Brussels

I’m just back from the DP concert at Brussels, and yes it was great! Better than the Bananas tour, but still under construction for some parts. Major mistakes in Before Time Began (in the structure), but I’m sure they’ll fix it by tomorrow. And Gillan will learn his lyrics. The tour is still young. I […]

What an Eiffel! – Paris

What a fantastic show! This was a treat and a half for me. On my 47th birthday we flew into Paris on a cold afternoon, quick trip up the Eiffel Tower back to the hotel for a quick change and on to the Zenith, great auditorium, difficult to walk to! We arrived at around 8.45 […]
