Deep Purple in Hamburg/Germany
Hi all DP-Fans !
Great to find you webpage. It is my great wish to express my feelings after what I´ve seen and heard on the 1st of October 2000 in Hamburg!
After more than 24 years I´ve had the chance to see Deep Purple again. The last time was Eastern of 1974 when I was 11 years old and my brother took me to the Ernst-Merk-Halle in Hamburg to join the so-called 'Eastern Meeting'. The headliners were my favourite band already at that time; Deep Purple with Elf (lead singer Ronnie James Dio) supporting them.
Now, 24 years later my schedule allowed me to go to Deep Purple again, performing their "Concerto" and a lot more... Believe me - I´ve never seen a concert offering such a variety of musical styles (including Mr. Dio again) - I´ve never seen a band so close or even already in a status of being god-like. I´ve never seen musicians being cool, experienced and vital at the same time. It was a dream!!!!
I dont know whether these words will reach the band - but I´d like to express my thanks to them!!!
Best regards and keep on rocking!
