Deep Purple at the XFinity Center, Mansfield, Massachusetts, USA – August 27th, 2017

I know a lot has already been written about Purple’s current USA jaunt in recent reviews here, but thought I would add my 2 cents worth of perspective just […]

Deep Purple – Live at Xfinity Center, August 27 (Sunday night!)

So we all came out to Boston…. (yours truly driving in from Montreal, Canada). On a Sunday. For a religious experience? Well, having seen Deep Purple for most of the tours that have brought the band near and around my hometown since 1984 , the road trips have become more of a roving pilgrimage not […]

PNC Bank Arts Center

Deep Purple live at PNC Bank Arts Center (Holmdel, USA 2017-08-28) After reading a lot of the reviews from the other shows here in America, I have a little bit different take on this. First, Edgar Winter did a fine job but I found it really unnecessary to have him on this bill. Valuable time […]

Good Times at (probably) final Deep Purple Show

Deep Purple live at Jiffy Lube Live (Bristow, USA 2017-08-23) I have been a fan of Purple since the 80’s. I graduated from high school the same year that Perfect Strangers came out. I had liked Purple before that (and really liked Rainbow) but the Mark 2 reunion opened up a love affair with a […]

An Odd Couple

Deep Purple live at Chelsea at The Cosmopolitan (Las Vegas, USA 2017-08-12) Upon the announcement of the Deep Purple / Alice Cooper co-headlining tour (w/Edgar Winter in support), I was ecstatic!

The Geriatric Tour

Deep Purple live at Cynthia Woods Mitchell Pavilion (Woodlands, USA 2017-08-18) If it’s OK with everyone, I’d like to do something I’ve never done. I’d like to write a pre concert review & follow up after I see it to see how I stacked up. After a 5.5 hour drive, we arrive @ The Cynthia […]

One Night in Frankfurt

Having seen Deep Purple in concert in 2004, 2006 and 2007, as well as buying a ticket to their cancelled Reykjavík gig in 2013, I finally saw the band again in Frankfurt’s Festhalle on June 10th. I must admit that I was nervous, strange as that may sound coming from a member of the audience. […]

El concierto fantastico

Band started with Time for Bedlam going straight into Fireball, then Bloodsucker and after that Strange Kinda Woman. All in a row without breaks. What […]
