Pictures of Milano

I came from Livorno (Tuscany) all alone to see the guys and their show and I am sure I have done the right thing! Some people say “Deep Purple are old.” Bullshits! This was my first Deep Purple live experience and I can surely say that they play, they really play! I am a big […]

Another last show – Milano

Since 1999 I’ve been going to D.P. concerts thinking “I must go because this is the last tour.” In Milano I was really really surprised by Purple. A few words about the setlist: the fact is not the songs and the music played, but how they play. I’ve enjoyed an incredible hard rock band: on […]

Best show in Milano

After many DP shows in Milan, this is been the first where group use large screens at side of the stage. Strange that they’re using them in the smallest venue available in city where everyone is able to see the show as to be on the stage. Probably this has been the best DP show […]

Spodek is exciting – Katowice

To live in Poland and to miss a Deep Purple gig in Katowice is like to be in Paris without visiting the Eiffel Tower:). Spodek is still exciting and so are DP gigs there. The show started with one of our best progressive rock group. I always liked SBB, so I was happy to see […]

A Saurcerful Of Purple – Katowice

That was my 3rd DP gig. I saw them in 2003 in the same venue, and then half a year later in Warsaw. It’s hard to tell which gig was the best. All of them were absolutely amazing. “Spodek” (“Saucer” – named after it’s UFO-like shape) was (almost) full this friday. Hardly any seat empty […]

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 […]
