Was this the first gig since '84 without Perfect Strangers? I really missed it. It would have been no problem if they did not play Smoke or Black Night.

And it was crazy - it was snowing the whole time during the concert, but after they have finished, the sun immediately came out... Beside that it was a very good performance, and my personal highlights were Blind Man and of course Fools, which was amazing. The version of Smoke was also very good.

Does anybody remember when Gillan did the Yodel? I think it was during Speed King, wasn't it? And when did Jon play his solo, which was short but interesting?
