Superb in Glasgow

Date: 26/11/2011

: SECC

: Helensburgh

: United Kingdom

The usual set with an orchestra? We didn’t know what to expect but need not have worried. The orchestra really added something to the mix with added swing and different interpretations of the songs we know and love. They added even more power to the band and Well Dressed Guitar and Rapture of the Deep were superb.

The man who really stood out was Don Airey who seemed to love every second and was on fire alongside the always excellent Ian Paice. Highlights were many although the real standouts were Perfect Strangers and Lazy and it was great to hear Hard Lovin’ Man. It would have been good to hear Sometimes I Feel Like Screaming too but I suppose they did that at the ’99 gig.

The sound men did a great job too with the acoustics as the SECC is a hard place to get right. The band will be hard pressed to top this although a new album might do the trick….
