Joanna’s last stage in Wroclaw

This Hala (I don’t like its new name) in Wroclaw (Vratislavia) is a beautiful building, but its interior disappointed me (I was there for the first time). Concrete walls and stairs, various pieces of junk in the foyer… But the acoustics of the hall were quite good.

The songs were the same again, but now, during “Hard lovin’ man”, Don played so eagerly that I thought he’d smash up all those keyboards! So did Steve in “Maybe I’m a Leo”. Unfortunately Mr Gillan sang out of tune again. Also in “Strange kind of woman”. In “Fireball” he started speaking instead of singing. He must have been very tired.

But independently of that the show was great. Brilliant solos of the guitar, bass and keys, some new lights… And a big surprise: Steve gave us a fragment of “Hey Joe” before “Smoke on the water”. Does he remember our Guitar Guinness Record of 2009? Thank you, Steve, how nice to know you’ve come to like this great festival!

The same enthusiasm of the public, although without lifting up girls. But I saw flying sweaters and jackets instead.:) It was the third gig of Deep Purple in Poland this year, yet the hall was full. And it isn’t a small hall, oh, no.:)

We were exhausted, but happy. Such “show marathons” are so tiring, but I think I’ll go to next gigs of Deep Purple when they come to Poland again. I had the time of my life.

One remark about Roger Glover and his interview in Przeglad: Roger, you’re a bit unjust about the people of my age. We don’t go to DP shows to remember old good times only. First of all we come there to listen to good music. Cheers!
