Review Erfurt, 10/10/1998
I just returned from the concert in Erfurt and wanted to share my impressions with you.
Since I arrived late I couldn't get close to the stage, but had nonetheless a good view to the stage.
Support act was a band from Switzerland which called themselves "Florian Ast und der Florianstein", they played for a little more than half an hour.
Purple started around 21:00, the concert lasted about 110 minutes.
From my positon the mix was IMHO OK, this time a little bit low on the guitar.
The lightshow was the same, with the /-\ background put to good use.
The stage-setup (view from the audience)
So much for what happened, now to the more subjective part:
Let's start with my impressions on the individual performances, I will keep this short, this time everyone was in really good form.
It was again a good show, with long and inspired solos by everyone and a amazing Gillan on vocals.
Since this probably was my last show for this tour, I want to thank everyone I met before, during and after the shows, it is has been a pleasure to meet you.
And of course not to forget the best rockband in the world: Ian, Roger, Jon, Steve and Ian.
I thaannnk you. IIII ttthhhaannnnnkkkkk yyyoooouuuuu.
Keep on rockin'.
