Ian Paice – Odeon Theatre, Canicatti

“The courage and resourcefulness of a band of enthusiasts has made possible the success of the concert at the Odeon theater in Canicattì, writing an indelible page of music in the province of Agrigento and environs.
The evening ‘already started’ from 19.00 to sixty lucky drummers who participated to Paicey’s drum clinic.

The boys, as well as listen to the voice of Ian Paice direct the secrets of his technique were able to talk with him and answered all the questions of the drummers. There were moments of emotion when Ian Paice told the illness and death of Jon Lord, keyboardist and his brother passed away recently.
To 22.00 everything was ready for the 1000 spectators Odeon, warmed by the “No Code”, a band that has opened the concert very well.
After a moment of emotion with a tribute to Jon Lord with a great video commemorating the great Hammondist, scream presenter Silvia La Monaca “… and the story begins,” the audience has exploded on notes of the first track, Bach On To This by Jon Lord, performed by the band Rapture(Salvo D’Addeo, Armando Cacciato, Simona Malandrino, Gaspare De Caro, Peppe Sferrazza and Leonardo Bruccoleri).
At the end of the song start the unmistakable rhythmic sequence of the snare drum of Highway Star on which’ joined Ian Paice … and was ROCK LEGEND. Fifteen tracks played at the highest level by Ian Paice and the band in its wake, including the inevitable Strange Kind a Woman, Black Night and Smoke on the water, a song that ended the ladder and saw the audience standing closer to the stage and embrace virtually the performers on stage.

Setlist was articulated and never predictable, which has dusted less famous songs is arousing interest among the fans at the same Ian Paice, who has the pleasure of playing yet. The manager Paolo Sburlati, manager and expert in drums, has spared no praise for the band and the organization, considering the show perfect from every point of view, both organizational and music. The same Ian Paice wanted to compliment you personally with the band, deeming flawless execution and interpretation of the songs, both musically and vocally. Ian also particularly liked the local wine, offered by the guitarist of No Code, Totò Ferraguto. Pure Rock ‘n’ Wine!
An evening that will leave ‘a lasting impression in the memory of those present”.
