Rock solid in Oslo

Good concert, no low points, some averages and mostly highs.

Steve and Roger in a playful mood, and Don was really showing off during the whole concert. Some interplay sections with Steve was excellent. Some particular nice bass solos from Roger, and behind everybody Ian Paice was to be trusted as always.

Wasted sunsets was a joy to hear live for the first time, very nice by both Ian and Steve! Space truckin’ was a monster, likewise No one came. And hearing Rapture of the deep and Sometimes I feel like screaming makes you really want to hear more Steve Morse era songs!

Once again an evening with DP to be remembered. Brought back fond memories of last year’s concert in Steinkjer (which truly was awesome….). Now I need to plan for a concert next year also….!

Attendance: Around 8000.
