I dont want DP to be "theaterical" band.... thank god they arent. They are about their music and virtuosity, not about theaterical stuff - they arent Kiss. emoticon



Hi ptr - first of all, let's celebrate the fact we are in agreement here!:-)

On a serious note, and repeating I agree 100 pch with you, I have to add that I saw Kiss on a festival in the late Eighties and was predicting I would not like them at all, but got out of said festival feeling they surprised me in a positive way - not just the theatrics, but the entire mood of the gig were very entertaining. So on a level, I understand the approach, even if it's not my cup of tea.

No fan of Kiss myself but did see them a few years ago at Download and they were OK, certainly put on a show for the audience. By the same token I am no fan of Alice Cooper but he has been putting on a show on this latest tour and getting excellent reviews.
It is not an exclusive arrangement, bands who are excellent musicians can also put on great stage shows (Pink Floyd, Genesis always had great shows)....it is nice to have both but if pushed I would prefer musicality.
However if it is too much to expect some virtuoso performances these days, a bit of excitement would be nice, or maybe even the odd surprise? Concert tickets are more expensive than ever these days, surely it is not unreasonable?

Of course it isn't unreasonable. There's nothing more boring than a concert in which everything happens exactly as expected.

Re: I saw DP in Mansfield, Mass on Sunday


Do not agree on having no good songs to shake up the setlist around 87

Ofcourse they did not want to do it but already could have done some oldies like POH, Place in Line, Fools, Fireball, WABM.

Dead or alive or gypsies kiss both rocked and had the great lord/Blackmore soloing.
bad Attitude and Unwritten law came out fantastic at the tour.
DOA even better.
I always felt that they should have extended Strange ways, re arrange it maybe.

Unfortunately even then Gillans voice ws so deteriotated they would not have been able to play stuff like HardLoving Man because of him.

Never could respect the choice to abandon great stuff from purpendicular, could have done several good tracks from Bananas.

It is all too late now.

They re dragging themselves to the graves. Well, they ve been doing that for years actually.

Here is the problem. While I own, and listen, to the new DP albums, and they are decent, when you put it in a set list with the far stronger original material, it pales by comparision. It is far more mid-rempo, not uptempo like the other material. It is not as heavy, not as hard. It brings the set down. If the material rocked as hard as what preceeded it, it would not have that effect.

On its own, it is fine. But it just didn't hold up on the mix.




But that new material should NOT be as heavy or as hard as the old one. That´s the point - Deep Purple changed a bit, they are not band with that In Rock type of sound anymore - which is good thing actually! Black Sabbath´s 13 perfectly showed why, it´s one of the most boring second rate "let´s recreate our old style" type of records I´ve ever heard.



It doesn't have to be heavy or hard. It just has to be exciting, which almost all of the new Purple isn't, especially live. They are basically a nice listen, but not much else. I think that some of the tunes off Purpendicular could be good live as well as a tune or two off Bananas or ROTD. For the most part, though, no. emoticon



I am not sure exactly what was off, but I have seen DP play new material. I saw the Abandon tour, they played new material with the old, and it was one of the greatest shows I ever saw. THAT was the DP I now and love. I saw them touring with Bananas, and the material worked. Everything blended well and the energy level stayed high. Its not solely about new material, or being hard. I think the exciting comment applies, as does the idea of energy. The energy on the new stuff wasn't there, the audience just deflated. Am I glad I saw them? Yes. Are they a shadow of the band I saw in 1998? Yes.
