Deep Purple -- Radio City, NYC -- August 7th, 2007

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...

Pictures Of Home
Things I Never Said
Into The Fire
Strange Kind Of Woman
Rapture Of The Deep
Woman From Tokyo

Well Dressed Guitar
Knocking At Your Back Door
*Don Airey keyboard solo*
Perfect Strangers
Space Truckin'
Highway Star
Smoke On The Water
The Battle Rages On

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...
