Icon33 Shape 68 NAMM Mini-Review

Due to earlier delays at the venue, Glenn and the band ended up on stage following Tower Of Power's performance at about 9:30pm, about an hour later than first scheduled.

They didn't waste anytime upon their arrival and dug straight into the Shape 68 set:

ALL ABOUT THE GIRL
STANDBY
YOU GOTTA BELIEVE IN LOVE
GRACE


Glenn then led the band into his signature tune:

COAST TO COAST

followed by the "Deep Pimple" classics:

YOU KEEP ON MOVING
MISTREATED
GETTIN' TIGHTER
STORMBRINGER
FUNK ON THE WATER (SOTW)


So 10 songs in total...with the Shape 68 numbers shining through...sounding fuller and like the band had fine tuned them since their debut performance last October, it was a great evening.

Chad Smith (Red Hot Chili Peppers) joined Robin on drums (with risers for both) for the final Purple numbers, Gettin' Tighter, Stormbringer & Funk! Jeff was also joined onstage with an unannounced (or I missed it!!) rhythm guitarist, perhaps someone else can fill us in?!?!

It was certainly a mixed crowd...with not too many fellow fanatics in the audience.

Definitely worth the trip down...you can find some pictures from here
