It’s been such a long time since the last concert I went to I can’t even remember which one it was. This period ends today. In a few hours I’m leaving to see Deep Purple. The last time they were in Brazil Jon Lord was still at the keyboards, but I missed the chance to see him. Don Airey is in his place now.
I wished I had had the chance to see the classic line-up, with Blackmore, Lord, Glover, Paice and Gillan, but this one I didn’t even have the chance – Blackmore left the band before I could have the chance to think about going to a concert.
I know that most likely I won’t be able to stand very close to the stage so I won’t be able to see Steve Morse – or rather Steve Morse’s guitar – but since I couldn’t afford the cool, near-the-stage-class tickets, I guess I’m gonna have to live with that. Maybe they will have video screens and then I will be able to actually see something. And, since this is the first time I go to a big concert since I started learning the guitar (actually this is he biggest one ever), I’m sure this will be the one I enjoy the most.
