This was my first time seeing Deep Purple and let me say they were great! First off, I had really good seats (front row on the 2nd Mezzaine) and the sound and acoustics in Radio City Music Hall were awesome. The band played great as well, especially for being in their 50s and 60s. The only downer was that Thin Lizzy, who were scheduled to open cancelled and The Original Vanilla Fudge replaced them. Now I'm not too familiar with all that many Deep Purple songs, I only know about 10-15 or so; so I'll do my best with the setlist. I'm sure of most of the songs and a few not too sure...

The Battle Rages On
Hush

I left halfway though Hush because I wanted to beat the crowd and my parking meter was about to run out, so I don't know if they played anything after it. Overall it was a great experience and I am definetly happy that I went. Great show!
By the way the lighting effects were very cool and well done and I was very impressed by Steve Morse's solo/Well Dressed Guitar...

First encore song was The Battle Rages On.

Great show. Too lazy to actually review.

Oh and after Lazy, it was Knocking at Your Back Door.

Oh thanks. I'm not too familiar with that song but I've seen that they have played it before in recent shows. What was the other song called that I put as The Battle Rages On? It sounded familiar but I can't figure out what it is. And, did they play anything else after Hush? Thanks.

I was originally planning on seeing this tour when I saw Lizzy were on the bill too, but when they dropped off so did I :D

Nothing after Hush. I was expecting Black Night, but alas, no. :(

No Child in Time?

I think Ian Gillian's lungs would leap out of his mouth, sprout legs and run the fuck away if he tried that.

Too bad, since it's the best non-Coverdale Purple song.

That. Although Lazy comes ridiculously close, in my opinion.

Oh and just because I felt like mentioning it:

After Vanilla Fudge were done with their opening set, this one guy sitting next to my party asked "The show is over, right?".

I replied, "No. There's still more. :D"

Then he asked "But that was Deep Purple, right?"

:eyes:

Wow. x100.

Last time I saw Maiden my friend was sitting next to a guy that asked "what song is this?" during the song Iron Maiden.
