A very special night.
2 December 2000
This was Deep Purple's third visit to Poland (3.06.1996), and the first
Ritchie Blackmore's successor - Steve Morse. The band was promoting,
definitely the best Purple album of the nineties - "Purpendicular"
in Feb 1996).
It was also my first encounter with the band playing live and I was very
excited when the lights went down and I heard the first song - "Fireball"
(from the album of the same title - my favorite Mk 2 studio album). I was
thrilled with the way the band sounded. It didn't seem that they had been
playing for 30 years. They sounded so very fresh and newly. I was in
heaven. My favourite moments of the concert were: "Fireball", "Sometimes I
Feel Like Screaming", "No One Came" and "Smoke on the Water" (of
That was a very special night I won't ever forget. From that time I saw DP
live two more times - in June 1998 (The "Abandon" tour) and more recently
November 2000, with an orchestra.
