Ecuador: Another big night

Deep Purple’s concert in Quito started at 21:10 local hour. The first 20 minutes of the concert were plagued with sound problems, fortunately they were remedied.

The set was full of all time classics: Space Truckin’, Mary Long, Into the Fire, Pictures of Home, Lazy, Black Night. The highlight of the concert in my humble opinion: the moment when they played Perfect Strangers, just FUCKING awesome. The Battle Rages On, also sounded very, very good.

Steve Morse is a real pro, even if he is not from the hard rock background, he played extremely well, tight and precise. They returned for an encore (Black Night and Hush).

There were moments at the concert that was like been in the Budokan at Tokyo 1972. You had to be there to believe it. Deep Purple are rock dinosaurs? No way! They are in an unbelievable musical form.

    They might be very good live & play well but they need to improve their studio albums & bring that sort of hard sound to them. Yes live they are a super group , iv’e seen them too . It’s just the 5 Purple members making music just purple minds. Could it be when they make a studio album Michael Bradford becomes the sixth member & changes the dynamics , ideas & sound, it becomes something different them.
