Le Havre: Slap happy thrice

Third date in Normandy for the band after Caen and Rouen and I was there again! In front of a cold audience, the band made a real ‘tour de force’. Ian Gillan screamed like a possessed man on Into the Fire !

Good surprise when the band played Mary Long: I’ve never heard that song played live except in the the Perihelion DVD. Great version.

Perfect Strangers, my favourite one. Third slap on my face in one year … 🙂

Loosen my strings played in a too slow tempo, in my opinion.

The band didn’t stopped to let the crowd chant during Smoke… We paid for our shyness I guess…

Anyway, thank you guys again and thanks Rog’ and Ian for the autographs at the airport!
