Air Festival, Schlossplatz, Coburg, Germany

Purple is getting better and better every year, is it really possible?
only Germany concert this year shows an unbelievable powerful band with superb
new songs from Bananas and fresh, inimitable solo's. Don't get me wrong, I love
the classic Purple songs and they were all there
this evening. (Strange Kind
Of Woman, Woman From Tokio, Knocking At Your Backdoor, Space Trucking, Highway
Star, Smoke On The Water, Hush, Black Night... ), but the new ones have got an
undenieable charisma and leave a lasting impression.
Ian + Ian, Don, Steve
and Roger are in a fine shape, they have got a lot of fun onstage and everybody
was able to hear it and feel it, this incredible evening.
All in all, my question
in the beginning must be answered with a big fat YEAH .
Yesterday I attended DP gig in Coburg, Germany.
Me and my friend covered the distance from Ljubljana to Coburg - 700 km. It was
worth it! Superb sound, superb band. It was my 23rd DP show.
OK except the audience. Infact it was crap. During Higway Star and SOTW, where
all audiences in the world get crazy and rock out, Coburg crowd just stood there
emotionless and watched the fivesome on stage. Very strange! Perhaps they didn't
even know what band they are watching??
Can't wait until July 6th - Rock in
