The Purple Tour

November 8, 2017

Yes, that one.  Anyone following the U.S. tour set lists with dismay will be happy to learn that the Stockholm show on the 6th November saw FOUR songs from the current album return, so with one track off the previous album and two from Perfect Strangers, the set is a touch over 50% reunion (plus the encore). Which is nice. I’ll stick the full set list (minus solos etc) below the photo, so don’t look if you’re trying to hold out for the shows in a couple of weeks! You’ll never manage. We were at an antique fair earlier this year and wanted to watch the F1 highlights when we got home, some sod announced the result over the tannoy.

U.S. tour set list spoiler

August 15, 2017

The double-header American tour (dates on the site) kicked off last Saturday, and finds Deep Purple clipping back the set a bit to allow for Alice Cooper (and their crew, and Edgar Winter). They have also dropped some of the new album and the show includes just two numbers from Infinite, one as the first encore. It’s hard to know how much of an issue this is as the tour is more ‘three classic bands’ sort of evening out, but dropping Birds Of Prey is a shame and we hope this gets brought back when they return to Scandinavia and Europe in November. One report says they did rehearse Woman From Tokyo for the US leg but not seen it logged yet. Anyhow here’s the set so far, look away now if you want it to stay a surprise!

Deep Purple Smoke On The Water

Highway Star / Fireball / Strange Kind Of Woman / Contact Lost / Uncommon Man / Lazy / The Surprising / Don Airey Solo / Perfect Strangers / Space Trucking / Smoke On The Water. ENCORE Back To Bedlam / Hush

Thanks to Tim Summers and others. One U.S. site lists the dates along with the exact number of unsold tickets! So we know that as of now there are just 391 left for the show in Atlanta, but 1660 for the mad looking open air Jones Beach Theatre in New York State…

Infinite set-list spoiler!

Well the wait is over and the Infinite tour set list is now doing the rounds after Saturday’s opening show.  And no fewer than four songs from the new album have made it, including what seem to be the top three judging from most people’s feedback on the album.  And interestingly two songs from Now What have also stayed the distance. However this does mean that there is only one other reunion era track left, and the other half of the set is much as before.

If you do not want know the details look away now!

Time For Bedlam / Fireball / Bloodsucker / Strange Kind of Woman  / Johnny’s Band  / Uncommon Man  / The Surprising  / Lazy  / Birds Of Prey  / Hell To Pay  / Perfect Strangers  / Space Truckin’ / Smoke On The Water. Encores : Highway Star / Hush / Black Night

Seems a bit of a shame to break up the two new ‘epics’ with Lazy on the face of it, but we’ll have to wait and hear how it sounds.

All The Time In The World has turned up in the band’s set-list, the rest is as normal. We’ve added the list to the tour dates page if you want to look. Thanks to Mike Richards.
