Turned away by greed

As an older fan of Deep Purple I have followed their career from the beginning and from behind the 'iron curtain'. As a long time resident of Tucson and living right next to the Pascua Yaqui reservation where the concert was happening I decided to see the Purples in my new locality. To my surprise I was turned away by rude tribal security who wouldn't let me bring a lawn chair (for the fear that I could have a bomb inside), no water allowed (in June and 92degrees at 9.30pm) and of course no
cameras (so I cannot send you any pictures). The experience was topped off by the presence of KPLX radio who was sponsoring the concert and one of the employees was just laughing at me, he thought it was funny. Anyway, next day I talked to a couple of friends and they liked Deep Purple, but hated the greed and inefficiency of the tribal operation. Well, it is right next to their casino. I won't be back to spend my money.
