Fun and games at Wembley

Thin Lizzy… Nuff said… Styx, excellent band but misunderstood by most.

I thought Purple looked a bit tired at first, but they soon found the groove. Gillan was usually entertaining, but I was dissapointed by the lack of Rapture material. It seemed like a fan’s choice of set.

The Battle Rages On was good and Smoke was worth it just for Tommy Shaw’s contribution. When A Blind Man Cries was as smooth as it was. The rest mainly hard rock standards. This wasn’t a patch on the Astoria gig that kicked off the Rapture tour.

I still believe the best thing that’s happened to Purple was Steve Morse, the whole band have fun and want to entertain. Let’s face it, that’s why we forked out £32-00 for a ticket.

I’ve been going to Purple shows since the Coverdale/Bolin line up and I guess it wont be the last.
