Gem not to be missed

Same set list as previous shows (minus Black Night). There's no new album, and musical improvisation (save for a few brief flashes) was NOT the order of
the evening. Despite this, tonight's performance veered towards outstanding - a real gem.

Ian Gillan on absolutely top form, all members as animated and obviously up for enjoying it as I've ever seen them in a single show. Although I suspect many of us would welcome more change, the set nevertheless works well, and the central section of CIT, No One Came, Well Dressed Guitar, Up the Wall and Fools is particularly strong.

A cracking night. To anyone still wavering: DON'T miss this.
