North America 2


Verizon Wireless Amphitheatre, Selma, TX, USA
Aug 27, 2004

Yet another superb show by the Purps... if a little short. This is the second time I've seen them here in San Antonio this year and yet again they didn't fail to impress.
The evening quite rightly belonged to Deep Purple. From the opening bars of Silver Tongue to the closure of Hush, it was a great show. I had hoped that they would incorporate Walk On into their live set but it wasn't to be. Maybe one day.
Having listened to Purple for nearly 30 years it's great to see people of my own age there with their kids. They are the ones that are going to keep this music alive forever. It will be a real shame when this band stops touring.
As an Englishman abroad it's great to see so many great bands here (my Union Jack shirt always gets noticed - thank you John Sykes for the acknowledgement).
All I have left to say is - Roger, Big Ian, Little Ian,Steve and Don, keep doing what you're doing, Bananas is a great album and the sound and energy is as fresh now as it was back in the beginning.
Thanks guys.
