I consider myself to be one of the lucky guys who went last Saturday. What pissed me off was that there should have been 10 times the crowd in attendance.
Deep Purple were excellent and in all honesty, the difference in music quality compared to the previous week's show by Iron Maiden was massive!
About the attendance - I suppose when you consider the size of our country you could not really expect more.
The band was "fresh" and showed plenty of energy and I can say that the show was as good if not better than when I saw Purple in London on 07.11.93 (I think it was Richie's last show before the split?)
Steve was great last week and I only hope we can see them again in Malta soon.
Keep it up guys - I'm off to buy Abandon which has just hit the shops!
