Globetrotting in France

From Harlem in the Netherlands we flew to Rennes to see our great Deep Purple. When we walked on Friday evening around the Rennes city we saw a bill bord on front off the Virgin Megastore. We were very very lucky when we read that on Saterday at 13.30 pm Deep Purple came in the […]

Cournon: True professionals

I went to the Deep Purple concert in France at the Zenith in Clermont Ferrand and had the most amazing experience, watching what can only be called true professionals. The music was the best I had ever heard, and full compliments to the most incredible signing voice. I always thought the group were incredible on […]

French enthusiasm Toulouse

Last thursday, I held my 35th birthday at my thirteenth gig of the Deep, in the Zenith of Toulouse and fourteenth in the Musik Halle in Rennes (South & North-West of France). “Crazy!” as said Paicey, You ‘right mate! I’m mad about that music… During the day the band came in town for some signatures, […]

Toulouse: Thanks for the love

Just back from Toulouse were the gods of rock & roll played last night. For the last 13 years IAN G., ROGER G., IAN P., STEVE M. & DON A. worked very hard to rebuild DP from the ashes left by RITCHIE B. (I didn’t want to mention him but…). I think last night the […]

Personal report from Yekaterinburg

The event I have been waiting for for two years happened. Deep Purple came to Yekaterinburg again. We were lucky that the band arrived on the day before the show, on Sunday, the 15th of October. So they were not in a hurry and had some more free time than they usually have in tours. […]

Purple magicians improve Polish acoustics

We were so glad to hear SBB (Search, Break and Build) live again. The guys were awesome as usual. Józef Skrzek and Apostolis Antimos are indefatigable! So is our band. The musicians must have been magicians. We were surprised by such good acoustics of the Torwar hall. How did they make it better? All our […]

Warsaw with Guns

For the second time this year I was lucky enough to see and hear one of the greatest bands in the history of music. This was my fourth DP gig overall and I will surely see them again if they come back some day. The setlist was no surprise – the same as during the […]

Ljublana: Three generations turned up

I am still under strong impressions after yesterday’s Deep Purple concert in Ljubljana, Slovenia. I saw them four times before and they were always great – and also yesterday! In spite of their age and long lasting tour, they acted very fresh, relaxed and full of energy through the whole show. The big Tivoli hall […]

Deep impressions in Slovakia

As a huge fan of Deep Purple I couldn’t have missed the first concert of Deep Purple in Slovakia. Apparently, so couldn’t many other people as well, from 10-year-olds to grey-haired band’s coevals – the place was pretty full. After a lukewarm support band the Purples fired it off with Pictures Of Home, Things I […]

Bratislava: Mark 8 beats Mark 2

I have been a DP fan for more than 30 years now and must admit that when talking about DP, I always had Mark II in my mind at the very top of the list. Of course I followed all other line-ups and bought all the albums but always having MKII as the benchmark. After […]
