Deep Purple pictures in concert ~ David Gasson

An expectant crowd at Zagreb arena was treated to an awesome two hour set as Rock Legends Deep Purple opened with ‘Time for Bedlam’ to set the scene for a crazy night of classic rock.

Deep Purple ~ The band 

Radiating their love for the music and the crowd, band members, led by the enigmatic Ian Gillan, Steve Morse, Roger Glover and Ian Paice, played their hearts out on Tuesday evening at arena Zagreb.

The tracks

The dynamic set included favourites from their very fist album, Shades of Purple, in 1968, to their latest album InFinite, released last month and showcased the very best of this enduring English rock band.

The Performance

Remaining true to their roots for almost 50 years, they entertained the packed arena with their musical skills, incredible guitar and piano riffs, rapport with the appreciative audience and their obvious pleasure at their ability to still enthrall their worldwide audiences.

‘Smoke on the Water’

The four chord intro to ‘Smoke on the Water’ raised the excitement bar even higher as arms and voices were raised with the crowd joining in for this all time favourite as it was played to the accompaniment of a video backdrop of news clippings and footage of the 1971 fire at Montreux, which inspired the song, as well as live footage of the audience as they went wild.

Concluding with an encore of three of their most enduring favourites, the band threw their drum sticks and picks in to the crowd as they left the stage. Thanking the audience, Gillan said ” You are amazing…….We love you. Take it easy…Bye Bye.The crowd thought Deep Purple were amazing too!
