Purple blow in Buenos Aires

Deep Purple blows minds at the Club Ciudad de Buenos Aires

For the third time in (almost) a year I was able to enjoy of one of the greatest bands in the history of rock n’ roll. Even though the band has not its original “Mark”, Steve and Don do a great job.

But anyway we should not forget those two magnificent musicians that are Blackmore and Lord. Getting back to the show…

The show was amazing. I arrived few minutes before it started. It started with the great Pictures of Home with the sound of which I got 2 meters (6 feet) away from the stage. After some good songs (but not very exciting for me) arrived Strange Kind Of Woman. Great song with twisted lyrics.

Then Rapture Of The Deep, that’s one of the best songs in the album along with Kiss Tomorrow Goodbye and Junkyard Blues). After this followed Fireball. What can I say? Paice really rocks in this song. Unforgettable!!!

Once in a while Gillan uttered a “Superb!” or “You’re the champions of rock n’ roll fans”. Although most people did not understand, it turned the crowd mad. Great song selection in Steve’s mini-medley guitar solo. Lazy’s intro is awesome and so is the song.

Just after came Don Airey’s keyboard solo. As he did last time here, he played Adios Nonino, a tango masterpiece by Astor Piazzola. During the tango a couple appeared and danced a most enticing tango. Bizarre! For me those were wasted minutes that could have been replaced for Demon’s Eye (which they didn’t finally play).

After the Imperial March (Star Wars, also repeated) Perfect Strangers began. I didn’t actually like this song before but eventually after some long listening it seduced me. Now I love it and I really enjoyed it on the show (despite the fact that Gillan missed the lyrics). After this followed hit after hit. Nothing can I say about these. They’re great and cannot be absente in a Purple’s show.

Songs I’m still waiting for them to play after the last 3 shows are: Child In Time, Kentucky Woman and Woman From Tokyo.

No matter what people can say about their age or anything. Something is true: DEEP PURPLE STILL ROCKS.
