Purple blow the Stones away – Auckland

An absolute storming Pacific Rim tour opener with the band in awesome form. The high energy performance got the crowd going and it was great to see so many young headbangers giving it some.

Steve Morse is a god in these parts and he played brilliantly along with the rest of the band. The new songs went down superbly as did the unbelievable awesome run of Perfect Strangers, Space Truckin, Highway Star, Smoke on the Water, Hush and Black Night.

The Rolling Stones played a stadium gig to 40.000 people the week before Purple hit town but the word on the street is that Purple blew them away. As I went to both gigs I totally agree. The musicanship of Deep Purple left the Stones for dead! Long live Purple – I wish I was going to the Monsters of Rock!

Now take this advice: Get off your lazy ass and go see the greatest rock band in the world! You will be blown away.
