November 26th will be forever an unforgetable night in my life. It was the first Purple concert I’ve watched live, and the guys are in their better form, Gillan looks like a funny kid on the stage, smiling and joking all the time with the others band members and with the crowd.

The concert was in the same place where Deep Purple performed in the begining of the 90’s years. In these time I wasn’t at the concert, so 2006 was my first Purple concert.

If there are many years I already love Deep Purple in all yours lineups, now I can say the band is fantastic really, their performance alive is very very very better than in videos, dvds and all stuff I have.

Magnific, fantastic, incredible, Gillan, Roger, Paice are in their better form, Gillan screaming very loud in almost all songs. “Into The Fire” was perfect one, “Wrong Man” looks how done to be perform alive. Steve Morse’s solo conquest the crowd, “Kiss Tomorrow Goodbye” show the power of the Gillan’s voice.

But the better performance in the concert was “Perfect Strangers”, in this song the band reach the loudest sound in the concert, was great, the walls looks going down on the groud for some minutes. And “Space Truckin'”, “Highway Star”, “Smoke On The Water”, “Hush” and “Black Night” were the anthens, with the crowd participating all the time in all songs.

A perfect night for more than 4.000 peoples in the concert. Unforgettable.

Thank you for exist, Deep Purple. Thanks God.
