This was my first time to the Sleep Train/Toyota/etc Amphitheatre. I am usually pretty cynical of big shows like this, but this was great! I love that they don’t charge for marking, and the sound at the venue was excellent. We had lawn seats and it sounded perfect. I didn’t even need earplugs. It really comes through in the recording- sounds pretty damned nice.
Ian Gillan sounded great as well- even though he is SEVENTY THREE years old. Damn, I hope I can be that productive at that age! Haha.
I did not know DP’s material beside the hits but it didn’t matter- very relaxing in the lawn chair on the lawn.
