[ d e e p P u r . p l e ) The Highway Star

Via Funchal, São Paulo, Brazil - Sep. 8, 2000

Amazing!!!! I've seen Deep Purple on the Purpendicular Tour twice and on the A.Band.On.Tour three times, but they surprised me once more. Now the guys are playing with the orchestra. I can't believe I saw that concert.

The first part of the concert is a classical show, a lot of space for the orchestra. Sometimes it seems the band is also watching the concert with their fans. However, on the second part the crowd got crazy.

When Ronnie James Dio gets onstage it seems the place will fall down. Hey, they played "Rainbow In The Dark". This is historic!!!!

There are such good moments to talk about but beyond Dio's participation, I must say that "Sometimes I Feel Like Screaming" with orchestra really hits your heart very deeply.

Today, Sep 9, 2000 is the third night of the São Paulo gigs. I'm gonna be there again. Let's see what is going to happen!!!!!!
