Deep Purple have begun their post-album recording series of dates over in Russia. They have decided against airing new material – the band have spoken of the problem of material being distrbuted over the web before – so it’s a mix and match collection of mostly golden oldies with a four track nod to the reunion (and flipping Well Dressed Guitar – again!).
Rehearsals were held in Ekaterinburg in Russia (so expect a 5CD boot any day!) and there are some great atmospheric pics on the web (links at bottom of page).
Fireball / Into the Fire / Hard Lovin’ Man / Maybe I’m a Leo / Strange Kind of Woman/ The Battle Rages On / Contact Lost / Guitar Solo / Wasted Sunsets / The Well-Dressed Guitar / The Mule (with Drum Solo) / Lazy / No One Came / Keyboard Solo / Perfect Strangers / Space Truckin’ / Smoke on the Water / Highway Star / Hush / Bass Solo / Black Night.
