Deep Purple in Bangalore

Only one day has passed after the Deep Purple concert in Bangalore, and already we are yearning for it again.

This was my first true rock concert as international bands come very rarely to India - and Deep Purple surpassed my expectations. The guys do not seem to have lost even a bit of their magic and the audience was enjoying themselves from the first song - "Woman From Tokyo" till the last, "Highway Star".

The high point of the show was their most popular song, "Smoke On The Water", where fireworks illuminated the sky and the audience sang along with Ian.

The solo performances were astonishing , and the short introductions to the songs made the experience more enjoyable.

I for one, will surely never forget their show at Bangalore.
