Yesterday evening we had the chance to see Deep Purple live in concert at the Summer Nights Festival in Sigmaringen. What can we say – the band is still a real smash. The musicians by now quite in retirement age are up there on stage and go full blast as if they had never aged.
The festival lasts for two days and Deep Purple played at the second day as the headliner. Before them Alan Parson’s played – sigh – like back then at record player times…
With the opener „Highway Star“ the five gentlemen stated clearly that they are still too young for the scrap heap. We were amazed how energetic the boys performed their songs. The set was a good mixture of old and new songs from the album „Now What?!“
I had for the first time in my live a photopass and was allowed to get very near during the first three songs and could take some pictures of the exceptionally gifted musicians. That was enough because directly in front of the stage are the bass speakers. And I can only say : It was difficult for me to hold the camera steady.
Now enough with the enthusiasm – here are some photos from Deep Purple live in concert.
