Doesn't matter who's on vocals, David Coverdale, Ian Gillan, DIO.... Ritchie Blackmore makes music sound brutally awesome! DIO was the best though.
Miika Suominen
This... This is EPIC. How can anyone say anything negative on this. To me, Ritchie will always be number one guitarist EVER. Doogie also fantastic singer, in this and also overall (people listen Cornestone).
Dimo Kumanov
Steve Morse couldn't play this way even if he had ten hands
Richie sounds and looks great 👍 rocks with the best and always sounds like Richie! Truly an original and his height of playing ! He is tremendous
Emrah Gundogdu
Ritchie's on God mode in this concert.
Ritchie is King of the Kings
Walter Mueller
There are some excellent guitarists - just solid craftmanship. But in Ritchie's playing you can feel the genius.

Ritchie the best guitar player from all Time 👍👍👍👍👍👍
Ричи как всегда великолепен.
I saw Rainbow on this tour and Blackmore was simply awesome, as is demonstrated in this clip.
What a song and what a guitarist!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I saw it in the same tour and Blackmore was always the best!!!
Rich Humus
...and then, at 2:54 - 3:00, all other guitarists went "WTF!".. :)
Ritchie, you're a legend!! You're the best !!
Dmitry Chernenko
He shook my hand at the concert in Kiev in 2013. I didn't wash it for a week )
jacob wang
Ritchie still the Best !!!
Geir Andreassen
Blackmore's up there with Clapton and Page....well,thats an understatement. Let's say lightyears past.

Blackmore is my Special Guitar Player !
Hong Jin
Richie Blackmore you are my Guitar Hero...The flying fingers genius
V Anderson
OMG I  LOVE Ritchie Blackmore!!!
Blackers is easily up there with Clapton and Page. No problem, but he is always overlooked in history. Same with Coverdale. He has still the best voice EVER in rock, but all you hear about is Plant or Dickinson.
I saw him in 86 with Purple.. great concert.. Then saw Purple in 99 with Morse.. his guitar sound spoiled Purples music.Ritchie is on fire here.. playing his best.
never tire of watching this performance ,brilliant !
Joachim Sudergat
The vocal is a great voice. Blackmore, normal, he`s great. All here sounds gooooooooooood.-:)
Randy Shoai
Jaw-dropping performance! Ferocious yet soulful. The sign of a master!

Ritchie is fantastic
Amazing Ritchie ! !
Ritchie was 50 in this gig, amazing!
This band, and particularly Blackers , are something else entirely.
Awesome Ritchie Blackmore !! The best 
Denis Fomin
Вот он вот он балалайщик Ричи! Класс! Молодца! отлично жгёт!
Willem Sterk
This was, to me, but who am I, by far the best line up of Rainbow and this song stands out as one of the best rock songs ever aswell as the other songs on " The stranger in us all" my fav. Rainbow album.
Dmitry Chernenko
As to me he has always been the best. The vocal is also perfect. 
Nina Vulcheva
Ritchie Blackmore - the God of Rock!
Александр Невский
Весь концерт хреначит мимо ударки. Ни разу не попал
Joachim Sudergat
Worlds First Class. Respect.
Humberto Lima
Doogie White's such a great singer!!!!
Mico Wikström
Probably the best excecution of all time in rock'n roll hstory? So perfect playing.
Stunning guitar work!
Ben Adam775
This is more Deep Purple than that crap Gillan and Morse put out now under the DP banner!
Alexei Popkov
Sounds sweet as honey. Magically
fj gonzález
Máster Class for the rest of guitarristas

Hunter Cazador
Ya hacia barridos, antes que Malmsteen.
Александр Алекс
Edward Kohv
самая великая рок группа!!
Charles Edward Renshaw
I hated this Rainbow line up. Dougie White is just so banal and mediocre and has absolutely no discernible qualities in his voice to differentiate him from a million other 'bedroom into the hairbrush' vocalists using up far to much oxygen in the earth's atmosphere.
Lightning Brigade
It's so awesome to read all these great comments about my all time favorite guitar player. Keep rockin Blackmore fans and God Bless.
Vladimir Faminsky
The best performance by Ritchie!
Je suis FAN !!!
Vashti Ayla
I miss my entire album collection of Dio that I collected from a young age on!  I still remember some of the great cover art!  I wore my Long Live Rock N Roll and Straight between the Eyes tshirts to shreads!  I also had a difficult to cure one which I did not wear as often because it just was not as Cool!
For this time and era, Doogie did a great job & Ritchie was on fire. Really great stuff!!
Benoit Vanhees
The outfit and r"n'r attitudes are a strange mix of Bruce Dickinson and your average caveman, the vocals are less powerful than Dio's or even Bonnet's, but it's certainly an OK performance. I'm not convinced that after 8 Rainbow albums with Dio it would not have become too much "too old wine in new bottles". Now we've gotten excellent Dio -solo albums and a more adventurous Rainbow. I can live with that, pity for the silly looks and stage attitudes of the singer, but well, nobody's perfect, not even dear Ritchie :)
Frank Mathiesen
Dio is the best best rainbow line up but this is still much better than the Joe Lynn Turner years.
kostas di
.......Let the darkness surround you The game that we play is the black masquerade.....
This is definitely one of the best live performance from Ritchie!
Fun than watching malmsteen running over his fretboard
R.B flying high again here. Underrated song from a somewhat overlooked album: Stranger In Us All . Its another masterpiece.
Christophe Pellier
Certainly the best song of rainbow
Kathy Debrouwere
Blackmore = god ? yes ...
probably the best solo from ritchie
thonny sanchez
