Cork review at Musicnews.ie

An Irish site dedicated to promoting independent bands have published nothing short of a glowing review of the June 30 show in Cork:

Deep Purple are considered one of the founding fathers of heavy metal. Once crowned the loudest band in the world in the Guinness book of world records, Deep Purple blazed a trail from the early seventies with their unmistakeable combination of blistering guitar licks, fuzz-fuelled keyboard solos, space-high vocals and accomplished rhythm section. They captured the minds and the ears of audiences with unforgettable riffs such as “Smoke on the Water”, “Black Night” and “Woman from Tokyo”.

    I was at this concert, and as the venue name suggests, it really is a hugh tent. deep purple to me have always been the best live band around anywhere and I have been to their prievious concerts here in Ireland but I have to say that the Cork performance was the best yet. Big Ians voice was the best I have heard it and he had no problems hitting the high notes. Little Ian and Roger were brilliant and Steve and Don were magnificent. If this band comes your way don’t miss them. And Purple don’t leave it so long to visit us again in Ireland. ITS YOUR MUSIC THAT KEEPS THESE IRISH EYES SMILING.

    I visit the Cork concert and I travelled from Sweden only fo this event. I think the band was better this evening comparing to the swedsh concert last year. Gillans voice are wonderful. I think he had some problem last year. Now it is time for some new album I think.
