Blackmore’s Night in Zagreb

As the Blackmore’s Night makes it’s way around Southern Europe, here are the details for the January 27 show in Zagreb, Croatia.

Set list:

Locked within the crystal ball
Queen for a day
Under a violet moon
Peasant’s promise
Streets of London / The Times They Are a Changin’
World of stone
Durch den wald zum Bach haus
Drinking song / Solo spots
Soldier of fortune
Home again
Toast to tomorrow
Far far away
Diamonds and rust
Wish You Were Here / Ocean gypsy
Wind in the willows
new song (???)
Black night / Difficult to cure / Smoke on the water / Woman from Tokyo
The Clock Ticks On
All for one
Christmas tree
Mid-winter’s night / Dandelion wine

And a few clips. Video is not the best quality (given how notorously strict Blackmore’s security are about unauthorised recording, it’s understandable), but audio is half decent.

Queen for a day (part 2)

Soldier of fortune

    Don’t feel bad Hector, I don’t either, I’m glad there are those who do but it ain’t my cup of tea.

    Took me 10 years from when I first listened to BN to get hooked. And I sure found out what I was missing. Went to see them last year and saw an amazing all acoustic set. I know it’s not for everybody but if you listen to the guitar it’s as great as ever.

    Black night / Difficult to cure / Smoke on the water / Woman from Tokyo?

    🙁 hard rock masterpieces off all the time in f***ing folk version?

    these songs belong only to Rock.

    no more comment…

    I was in Lisinski that night, and you know what, it was great.. He played Black Night, WFT and Smoke in hard rock manner, no folk versions, and difference was obvious – these are Blackmore’s riffs and masterpieces, and for me roaring sound of his Fender in these songs is crucial.

    Makes you want to pull on those ‘tights’, dust off the ‘pointy hat’ and run around playing with your ‘lute’……….

    Most of the things from Blackmore’s Night do not work for me the way I would like, but there are some tunes I enjoy, LWTCB is my all-time favourite. Imagine the song with full rock power…

    It ALWAYS has its magical RB moments but still I wonder if I ll go to see them
    I already skipped a few gigs in the last years, so maybe I should…….

    Ian Gillan once said to an interviewer…..
    I only do what I like, dont you?


    Makes you think both sides through…..
    Does he really?
    Do we?

    RB could play Black Night, WFT and Smoke in hard rock manner with his caravan of medieval minstrels ..as Gillan could play a flute or a bagpipe in front of a fireplace before going to sleep at night..with a good cammomile to drink of course.

    Yes, DP numbers has become funny parodies for some medieval/folk-music fans. What a shame…

    If Blackmore want to play music like these, just fine. But please do not add any DP numbers and ruin the legacy of Deep Purple’s music on stage. Strange! Awful! Except he retreat the original Deep Purple arrangements.

    I think, BN music is fairly good and beautiful, even it wasn’t part of mainstream music nowadays. Just follow what is it now in Ritchie’s head, as long as he still plays music, that’s nice. World music, isn’t it?

    Soooo, even BN music is not my cup of tea, I can enjoy their cook a little bit or more. Just for fun. This show has ensured my opinion, EXCEPT for DP numbers above. But it’s still a question, won’t I go to their show at any chance?? Well, maybe watching videos is enough ice for me.

    I don’t mind it. I work nights and have a difficult time sleeping during the day. I use BLACKMORE’S NIGHT to fall asleep. I’m usually sleeping before the end of the first track, it’s very relaxing!

    It has an opposite effect on me. In fact it tends to generate a nausea feeling………

    I get the same feeling when I have the misfortune to hear JLT’s circus performances………..

    Its probably an allergy………

    I prescribe a daily dose of DEEP PURPLE MARK VII!
