Deep Purple Live in Dubai

Yesterday (20 Mar 2009) me and my colleague from Abu Dhabi all the way went to Dubai to watch one of my 'must watch' concert in Dubai. The 'must watch' concert to me must be one of a greatest legendary rock bank on this planet, and this band is Deep Purple!!!

The concert was organised inconjunction with Dubai Bikers' Week. We were so excited to watch this concert and we arrived early to grab a nice position to watch this concert, and we choosed right infront of the guitarist - Steve Morse.

I decided to snap more clearer and nearer photos for this concert, so I went to bought a AF-S 70-300mm ED with VR Nikon lens before the show, after bought the lens then only knew that the organiser not allowing to bring cameras into the concert arena. Damn!!! I wasted so much money to buy the lens and I can't use it in the concert, I nearly wanted to bang my head at wall!

The show started about 9.20pm (+4 GMT), and the first song they played was Highway Star!!! The moment I saw them came out to stage, I nearly cried out, finally... I got chance to see one of my favorite rock bands right infront of me!

Although they are so old now, but they are still rock! Only thing the vocalist, Ian Gillan has lost his powerful voice, most of the time I can't hear what he sang, but who cares? The band were playing so well.

When the moment they played Smoke On The Water, everyone were getting mad, myself was very high because this song was my 1st ever rock song I heard when I was just a small kid.

The show ended around 10.45pm (+4 GMT), I felt still not enough for it. Anyway, I really enjoy it, the only spoiler was I was not allow to bring my cameras to enter to the concert, I brought both my wives Nikon D90 & Lumix FZ-28 and I have to keep it in the car...

Anyway, before the show I managed to snap some pictures around Dubai Festival City to try out my D90 and my new 70-300mm Nikon lens...
