30.09.00, Antwerp, Belgium.

Edwin Baeyens,, 30.09.00.

      I just got back from seventh heaven!!! Deep Purple played the first concert of their European tour right here in Antwerp (actually, for me this is just around the corner). It was absolutely amazing!
      For me, the star of the night was Steve Morse. What he did to songs like Love is All, Fever Dreams, Fools & (of course) Sometimes I feel like screaming is incredible!
      Of course, there just had to be some drunkards who were booing all the time during the quiet parts of the Concerto (although Ian Gillan had asked the cattle to leave the concert hall); I really don't understand why these losers go to a concert like this.
      Apart from that, this concert was absolutely amazing, one of the best I've ever seen. Choice of songs is better than the Albert hall concerts.
