Date April 24, 1987Band Deep Purple Tour The House of Blue Light World Tour Venue The Spectrum City Philadelphia, PA Who saw this show with me? Chris DeFranco
Notes As hard as I try I just can't remember this concert. It's probably because its almost identical to the Deep Purple show I saw in 1985. So, I'll write the same note: I don't remember much about this show other than the band broke into Jesus Christ Superstar during Strang Kind of Woman. I also remember the incredibly long Ian Paice drum and Jon Lord Hammond Organ solos.
