the last time i saw them was in 1995
Perth (one night) > SG (one night) > Kathmandu!? (one night) all within a total of 8 days. Just wow!
And to answer your question, unfortunately I'm not going to be in town when they drop in, if I were I'd definitely go!
You last saw them in '95; that was when I saw Pink Floyd in the SG Indoor Arena. I hope Purple live up to your recollections. I still thought they rocked (though I originally 'got into them' getting on for 35 years ago now! (I might add though that I got into 'very heavy music' by the age of c7-10 years old )
I'll tell you one thing I find peculiar in SE Asia, is the silent passivity of most people in the audience. (When I saw Floyd at the SIS everyone on the floor of the arena had to sit on school-type plastic chairs (!?). When sections of the crowd started standing up, others had to follow in order to see. The government censors stopped the concert twice, and had the lead singer explain to the audience that they had to put the chairs back in place and sit down, or the concert wouldn't restart. They'd already played 'Another brick in the wall' that night, but they repeated it again in their 2nd or 3rd encore. The irony wasn't lost on many of us I expect.
Prodigy at Fort Canning, and most people are sitting on the ground on 'picnic rugs'... WTH!?
I saw pictures of the venue where they will be playing, it looks more like a venue for someone like elton john than for deep purple. Anyway its good that it's indoor and like you mentioned its got chairs.
I can't bear the thought of sitting down and watching a rock band , its just downright stupid.
I watched iron maiden with a crowd of 30,000 sweaty people hell it was great, there were a low cloud of weed hanging over the crowd
