    Damn, they were really, really good at the time! Much better than I thought back in the days since the only concert I ever saw was the Paris gig (poor sound, Gillan had a cold and so on). This concert is plain amazing even if Blackers is a little “all over the place” in some songs (IMO he had lost his way a bit, but found it again for the S&M and TBRO tours). The rest of the band is fantastic! What about Ian Paice? My God, what a drummer!!!

    An interesting note with the release of the dvd here in Oz, I was looking at it today in a shop & on the front cover there is a sticker that says ‘Filmed in Sydney’! There isn’t any other info in regards to where it was filmed on the back cover, which surprises me in a way. Maybe inside the cover there may be more info, has anyone who has purchased it read any other info on the actual inside cover or on the disc itself? Sydney or Melbourne or both? Cheers.
