Don Airey & Friends

VAZ Manglburg, Grieskirchen Austria   June 15, 2007

Grieskirchen - a smalltown in nowhere of Upper - Austria, a railwaystation gives connection to the wide world. The very cosy VAZ was an ideal venue for the gig. A strong nucleus of fans from Austria came, a lot of Germans and one from Switzerland too.

The well selected setlist contains songs from the carrier of Don in different bands like Deep Purple, Rainbow, Whitesnake. The show was very powerfull and rousing.

The band is a good combination of first class musicians: Carl Sentance (voc), Chris Childs (bg), Bernhard Welz (dr), Doka Kaitner (g). The special guest of the concert was Lidia Baich on violin, one of the most successfull young violinists in the world.

All musicians was very friendly, with great courtesy and patient to his friends.
