Black Night

Deep Purple started show at 23.10 hr. It was announced to have been at 22.00 hr. They finish at 00.45 after only 1.35 hr. Too short for them. It's the shortest of the 13 Deep Purple shows I've seen.
It was great as always - excellent perfomance and sound, the band played extremely tight and had found some fine new arrangements for the old classics. A superb show but, to be honest, somewhat mechanical: there was very few improvisation, most songs were kept quite short, including a very short Ian Paice solo in Hush.
I love Purple music, and I hope to see them again a few times, but hopefully a longer show with more improvisations, big drum solo, duet Airey/Morse, Gillan/Morse.
Deep Purple forever! I see you again. You are amazing.
Vicente Rojas, Canary Islands
