Deep Purple

Tanzbrunnen, Cologne, Germany   July 26, 2008

Deep Purple with ex-Rainbow members Roger Glover and Don Airey is touring Europe again. Ralph Grille saw them last weekend when they played in Cologne, Germany. He has sent us some photos, a short review and the setlist of the gig.

All the times it is a great joy for me to see and to hear Deep Purple, Roger Glover and Don Airey within. This musicians are looking back at great careers. Maybe they are fans who thinking Jon Lord is the better one - well, his last tour with the Purple guys is 6 years ago and Don is a great musician and very friendly too. Both I got to know.

Roger Glover - what a carreer, what a creative man. Musician, producer, painter, and photographer too.

Once again a rousing concert in Cologne......

Setlist: Fireball / Into the Fire / Strange kind of Woman / Rapture of the Deep / Mary Long / Contact lost / Sometimes I feel like screaming /Wring that Neck / The welldressed Guitar / The Battle rages on / Don Airey - Solo / Perfect Stranger / Space truckin` / Highway Star / Smoke on the Water incl. Here comes the Sun / Hush / Black Night.
