Purple stories in Belgium

It had been a while since Deep Purple was doing a gig in Belgium. Standing on the first row, the atmosphere and information exchange was taking my interest level up high at the beginning of the concert.

A very dedicated nicy German lady introduced me in the wonderful world of touring with Deep Purple, their management and their families. Those stories took me in the good mood to listen to the head line up we were all waiting for.

As soon as Prokofiev’s song started, lights gone out and the show was about to begin. The set list was equal to the previous European concerts. The specials in this tour were Wasted Sunset, Contact Lost and No one came and The battle rages on.

I was very happy to hear my all time favorite Sometimes I feel like screaming. In the category of classic songs, Highway Star, Wring that neck, Maybe I’m a leo, Fireball and of course Smoke as final song before the encores.

It has been a while since I heard the voice of Ian sounding so well, even the screems were very clear and lifted the audience into good moods.

The sold out concert proves that our all time favorite band is still alive and kicking as never before, I am really happy when Ian told the audience to write & release a new album in 2010.

Many thanks to Katie for sharing the true Purple stories with me!
