Sweet fifteen at Nürnberg

Actually, it wasn’t my idea to write a review of Deep Purple’s concert. It was my Dad’s. In his opinion it was a ‘progressive rock show’ and I want to add it was fabulous, because I’m not good at using words I don’t know the meaning. OK, we’re talking about the Deep Purple gig in […]

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 […]

“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 […]

Things I Never Said – Mannheim

This is the most professional show of the new line up and it features the best balanced set they have ever played. (I think I can say that, as I have seen the band on all their tours in the last 10 years.) If you have the chance: Do yourself an immense favour and go […]

Pure power – Mannheim

Wow, what to say? It is quite easy – the best DP concert I have ever seen (it was my 8th since 1985). The SAP Arena is a fantastic venue and it was completely sold out. 14.000 people were as happy as the band was. Very effective light show. IG in very funny mood. Paicey […]

Sold out in Stuttgart

After half an hour break for rebuilding (it took quite a long time to take away the coffin, the corpse parts and the guillotine), which put he atmosphere down to zero again, it finally started. There were two big video screens at the sides of the stage, but only one worked, luckily the one at […]

Unusually nice – Berlin

Nice show. It started with Alice Cooper. I saw them live for the first time. I liked their songs though these antics with a coffin and a guillotine were too macabre. But other acts, as throwing pearl necklaces, false dollars or big balloons, were awesome. Intriguing band! Deep Purple were cool as usual. Mr Gillan’s […]
