Waves and girls in Spodek

I like Spodek very much, so I went to that show with a big pleasure, although the setlist was identical. The band was in good form as well. The same lights, videos, lightnings, the same enthusiasm… But there was something new: Don played a Chopin waltz instead of the As-dur polonaise. And as far as I noticed, he drank our health with a glass of coke, not beer. 🙂

The public was delighted. I didn’t notice anyone dancing, but those hands were up! A forest of hands waving and clapping. Some girls were lifted up again. Is it in vogue nowadays, or so? A bit dangerous custom, especially for the girls, but it looks cool. I like it very much.

That evening was the most exciting for us because we managed to meet four musicians. Steve was so happy to see I’d bought one of his latest solo albums. So was Roger seeing his “Mask” in my hands. Don was surprised to see “Babylon”, a CD of Ten, the group he used to play with many years ago. Even Ian Paice, who was very glad to see us, signed a few albums for us, including “Come taste the band”. I guess the musicians are always happy to see we buy their solos.

We managed to go to bed quite early, but in any case it was so hard to get up at six the next day! 🙂
