BUENOS AIRES, HOT PERFORMANCE
I saw Deep Purple for the first time last year in the North American
I flew from Argentina specially to Chicago, Kalamazoo and Detroit ,
because I think that Deep Purple is the most important rock band in the
world. I've enjoyed Deep Purple since 1979 when I was 14 years old.
Those concerts in North America were terrific, and the concerts in
Argentina were terrific too.
I saw Deep Purple in "Obras Sanitarias" (Buenos Aires, Argentina) March
2nd. and 3rd.
The place is beautiful (6.000 persons per day), the view is fantastic
since anywhere you stay.
So, all the people enjoyed the concert.
Some of the most important bands played in that same place. For example
(Emerson, Lake and Palmer '93, Ian Gillan Band '90 and '92, Black
Sabbath '92, B.B. King '92 and '94, Rick Wakeman '93, Chuck Berry '93,
Jetho Tull '93, Living Colour '93, Kiss '94, Yes '94, Ozzy '95, Iron
Maiden '96, etc, etc.).
For me, the best versions in the concerts were: Woman from Tokyo, No one
came and Black Night, and the Purpendicular's versions sounded
Mr. Jon Lord is an old white genius in his keyboards.
Steve Morse is a great guitar player and he replaces Ritchie very well.
Ian Paice, still keeps all the power in his hands and Roger Glover was
great on bass.
I think, that Ian Gillan is an old and carismatic singer and his voice
The sound was perfect, and the set light was ok.
The people in the concert jumped and shouted the riffs all the time and
were surprised and happy, These concerts were the hottest, that I
I'm very happy, because Deep Purple is still alive !!.
