Smile Rainbow Birmingham Review 2016

WOW! What can I say. Epic in every way.

Ritchie was right when he said Ronnie Romero was the real deal. A cross between Dio and Mercury with a bit of Coverdale.

Plus they did an acoustic version of Soldier of Fortune and added BURN to the encore, neither of which were done in Germany.

I was 7 rows from the front right in the centre so could see how much RB was enjoying himself.

This review in the Birmingham Mail says it all

Awesome ! I made it to both German shows as well as staying at Ritchie's beloved Schloss Eggersberg and was given the Blackmore suite when I told them why I was there. Enjoyed it a lot ! Just calculated today I ended up 13 rows away from Ritchie the first night ! Ronnie is a real find !

That sounds as if you had a real good time. Any Ritchie ghosts around the castle, playing tricks on you?

Ha Lioness, a very peaceful place , no ghosts interrupted my sleep or anything and no bad vibes. I swear it's the most quietest place on earth , beautiful and good food , drink and service. Only two other guests there night I was there. Blackmore is my favorite musician so sleeping in his room was thrilling ! I imagine it's like Doors fans that make their way to room 32 at the Alta Cienega motel in Hollywood- Jim Morrison's room.

Ritchie performs the first real intricate solo of the night and it's full of emotion and passion. He looked happy afterwards, bending down on one knee to give a lucky fan down the front a pint of beer.

The RB Intl Fanclub posted this pic. Could you watch that scene, wolfy?
