Very good night in Rennes

Seventh time that I see the Purps in concert. The show was fresh and energetic. Enthusiastic crowd. They played loud.

Same list than Lyon with a great opener Hard Loving Man. The guys were in a fine form, even if Gillan had always some problems with his voice.

Highlights: Hard Loving Man, Rapture of the Deep, When a Blind Man Cries, Almost Human, Perfect Strangers, Lazy with great work from Don Airey.

Encore; Highway Star, Hush, Black night.

Lights show were also good. Two hours of happiness. Maybe nostalgia? Audience: 3500

    Highway Star wasn’t played in Lyon. The setlist was identical to Montpellier and Bordeaux.
    It was the last gig with Hard Lovin’ Man as an opener and Highway Star as an encore.
