DP S&M Tour 1991 - Revisited


If you listen to the JLT era live performances now to me it sounds quite fresh and acceptable, a unique set list in that those S&M tracks have never been played live before or since. Ditto Burn obviously, will never be played live by the touring band ‘Deep Purple’ again, unless by some form of mk3 reunion at the RRHOF!

Furthermore, a change compared say to the 1988 tour and the remorseless (no pun) re shuffling of mk2 classics/Ted/Silver tongue etc by Mk Morse/Airey since.

I still have different feelings about the 1991 shows. From the instrumental side it was great, much better than the shows in the 1980's. But Joe Lynn Turner - as much as I rate him as a mainstream AOR singer - simply didn't fit in this band. If they had chosen another vocalist, it could have worked out great and lasted longer. For me, it was one of Blackmore's biggest mistakes ever to think that JLT was the right singer for this band.

I have 2 shows on bootleg from that tour and they both are pretty boring. Maybe some of the other shows were great. JLT really butchers the PS songs(of course he sounds great on the S&M material and does a fine job with the MH songs).

Re: DP S&M Tour 1991 - Revisited


I was at the Freiburg show then which is regarded as one of the best shows on this tour. Some songs were played pretty well (during HS I noticed that this song doesn't necessarily need a singer to get me hooked), there were some nice improvisations in between - but the overall feeling was just wrong. I was so bored that at times I was more thinking about the physical effects of the lasers from the lightshow than tuning in to the music. Record and tour of Mk V gave nothing to me.

Re: DP S&M Tour 1991 - Revisited


I had a friend , he has since become a real pos prick , who had a friend at the time , who was able to grab me great seats to see the band in Concord , CA. The guy at the time , worked at Ticketron which became Ticketbastard .My boy was probably 12 at the time .Wanted badly to see Ritchie [sign in to see URL] the time the show was getting close , they pulled the plug on all remaining U.S. dates .I suspect there were weak ticket sales and or the band deciding they sucked .Big disappointment for my son .

Ticket sales were weak in the States. I saw them in Detroit and drove to Cleveland to see them. We called our BMG rep the day before to make sure everything was still good and they assured us it was. We get to Richfield Coliseum and bam! We find out not only is that show canceled, but so is the rest of the U.S. tour. They did S America and Japan after that.

I m not sure but wasnt it so that Americains fell in large numbers for the latest fad called Grunge and dismissed many older bands because of that?
I think only Sabbath profited off that

That and the fact that we don't seem to be willing to accept any other singer in DP other than Gillan anymore.
