I saw Steve Morse and Gilmour. I was in the first row when seeing Deep Purple and Morse's guitar amps were right in front of me. He sounded louder than the rest of the stage including Gillan. On the Gilmour concert it was a big stadium so I got to hear his guitar through the PA. I've never heard a guitar so clear yet pleasant. His guitar echoed through the stage as if I was surrounded by it. His sound had that watery texture that is so hard to duplicate.
