Magnificient – Brussels

A few years ago in Lichtenvoorde at the Arrow Festival I was hugely disappointed. A very obligatory set, no inspiration. I thought they had lost it, and told myself, ‘no more Purple concerts.’ I’ve seen them many times and it is enough.


The album Rapture of the Deep was too good to be true, in fact, it is brilliant. And when opportunity knocked, I wanted to give them a chance, so I went to Brussels.


I’m not going into detail, but every song was spot-on, lighting was just flashy enough, the sound was great, and Gillan sounded better than ever.

My favourites were Rapture of the Deep, Perfect Strangers, Highway Star and Junkyard Blues. And all the other ones were also magnificent. Keep up the good work, guys, and next time I will be there again!
