Hey Guys!!! Took a while to figgure out how to post one but found it! Ok so Im gonna break this down a bit so you can get the full effect of the show. First, the Pre Show!!!
Got there a bit early and got to hear Satch warming up, that was really cool because it was like Satch in his raw state, it was just pure jamming and having fun. Then he got serious and checked Flying and I Like the Rain which I could hear PERFECTLY, it was a great treat untill after he was done singing because the skys opened up and started to pour!!!
Thin Lizzy came out, I had never heard much of them but wow, I was blown away for two reasons. IMO they put on a great show and I was blown away because they were so damn loud!!! I had been to a couple concerts but this had to be the loudest! Anyways Lizzy rocked and I am now a fan of theirs!
JOE!!!! He came out and started right off with Hands in the Air, then Satch Boogie. A super cool intro for Cool #9 followed, sort of a "sing along with Joe" moment. Then GNAHHH, I Like the Rain, and Up in Flames. Then was a 3 song medely kept together by feedback, Is There Love in Space?-War-Flying in a Blue Dream! Always followed with a verrrrrry extended ending, the end was probobly as long as the song but was definitly cool! Then I knew it was the end of the night when Summer Song was played. Great set although the crowd was not verry into it, they sorta sat down and about half the people stood only when he completely tweaked out like at the end of Flying. Great set, crappy crowd.
Deep Purple came out and played alot of classics with a mix of new songs from Bananas. They played songs like Highway Star, Smoke on the Water, Bananas, Ive Got Your Number, and an instrumental called "Contact Lost", Steve completley smoked it!!!! They were a great band to see live and even after the show I saw them signing autographs from the stage, verry cool.
All in all great concert, great Satch concert, only problem was three things, two Joe couldnt help. The rain (which didnt last all night thankfully), the crowd, and lastly a point deducted FOR NO JAM AT THE END OF THE DEEP PURPLE SET! No, Satch didnt come out to jam with DP at all. O well, thats only one point deducted, but still GREAT SHOW!!! Now come somewhere near us with an Evening with Joe show!!!!
