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

Zenith Lille, France, November 8 1998

I recently saw DP's concert at Brussels on 24 September and it was great. The show yesterday was even better IMHO. Ian's voice was as it's top. The set remainded the same but the solos improvisations were different. Because I knew exactly what I would see, it was even more exciting to watch this concert. I was standing at the front at less than 2 meters of the scene, so it was an ideal position. The sound was better mixed than in Brussels, Jon was really audible during the solos. I appreciated the "battle" between Ian and Steve during Lucille which followed Speed King and Ian Paice's drums solo. They were really like kids playing together.
Jon was also in very good mood too (he wasn't that present on scene in Belgium).
All in all, it was the best DP concert I have ever seen.
Like Ian would surely say, it was "Superb, Supreme, Unbelievable!!". A great evening.
