Oberhausen TV report

Local TV station ARD Brisant showed this report from the gig in Oberhausen on November 13. Unfortunately, the interviews are overdubbed, but looks like nothing groundbreaking has been said. Don Airey told that nowadays he has a reserved seat at his doctor as he’s going more and more to regular check-ups. He also pointed out that there is so much rubbish around these days and that people know they won’t be cheated at Purple gigs, they’ll get the real thing. Roger said that Purple is a band who live in the present because you can’t change the past and you never know what’s going to happen in the future.

We are also being informed that security at the gigs is really, really tight in the wake of Paris attacks. If you are going, allow plenty of time as it can take an hour just to get into the venue.

Thanks to Yvonne for the info.

    I was in Hamburg yesterday. Took about five seconds to get through “security”. Nothing extraordinary. Saw a couple of bald guys in suits with radio during the concert, but nothing more than usual. But the concert didn’t draw a lot of attention anyway as all the police was at the Town Hall because of the funeral of Helmut Schmidt with Angela Merkel, Jens Stoltenberg and others participating. 🙂

    Please believe me, this is no sense of German humor, just the reporter or translator sucks!!! What a shame.

    Great to see Don taking the time to watch the support band (Rival Sons)!
