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

Adelaide 8/3/01

What can you say about a band that has been turning out great music and performances for over thirty years that hasn't already been said a hundred times over? Who cares. I'll say it again!

Deep Purple put in a brilliant performance in Adelaide last night. They never cease to impress and amaze. The first time I ever saw them was in 1975, I was 18 at the time and last night I took my 18 year old son to see them! He came away ranting as much as I did! Awesome!

The set had a few surprises for audiences in Oz; "Mary Long", "No One Came" and "Fools". The rest was fairly par for the course as far as set lists go.

These guys don't actually get that much better. They just keep delivering the same high standard they always have. It's great to rant about a band, have all your mates turn up and then sit back and watch them deliver! Woohooo!

Deep Purple rock!
