1974 T-shirt still fits!

This was my first time seeing the lads on foreign soil and I was glad I did. Had my repro tour shirt on from 74 and got asked by loads of people if was actually there and confirmed yes at the Newcastle Odeon.

Me and my mate Dave dropped the missuses and kids at downtown Disney and settled for a couple of pre show beers. We had both seen them at the Newcastle Arena earlier and I felt Purple are unable to attain their rapport with the fans in what is really an ice rink.

House of Blues was totally different! We made for the front of the stage clutching four Buds each. I thought Edgar was o.k but then I`m old enough to remember him from my schooldays.

Purple hit the stage and the joy and happiness coming from the band was overwhelming. I think I sang to each and every song and could hardly speak afterwards.

We were so happy that we were going to Clearwater as well but we were overruled by our better halves.
All in all one of the best concerts I`ve seen this line up do and the atmosphere was as good as Jons final show at Newcastle City Hall. Can`t wait to see them again but please not the dreaded Arena.
