Missed Five and the Red One, we arrived approx. 10mn after Whitesnake had begun. I was never really into Whitesnake, and apart from a nearly 10mn guitar solo from both guitarist (which I always wanted to see live), the concert was boring. David Coverdale couldn’t sing properly and used a lot of effect on his voice (or playback ???) or let the public sing when the parts were too difficult. Since the public was also apparently pretty bored, it didn’t turn out really well. They played around 1h30.
As far as Alice Cooper, I was never really motivated to see him live, although I love some of his cd, and although I had plenty of occasions. I guess I was wrong, the concert was really great, he still sings very good, the band was also really good (with a nice drum solo involving both guitarists) and the show was pretty entertaining (since it was the first time I see him). They also played around 1h30.
