Alice Cooper is literally kicked DP's behind on this tour


I saw Edgar Winter, Alice Cooper, and Deep Purple at the BB&T Pavilion in Camden New Jersey last night.

I have to say that Edgar Winter and Purple did a nice job. But it is clear that Alice Cooper out did them both.

Purple could not keep the momentum that Alice Cooper started, nor could the band match the props he uses including fire works.

I am very sad to say that the current set list Purple is using is not the right one for this tour.

They should drop Strange Kind of Woman and add in Bloodsucker.

Also, why did they play the Surprising which is a bit of snore fest, when they could have played something a little more interesting like Birds of Prey. I could tell people were getting a bit bored during Morse's long guitar intro to Uncommon Man, as nearly everyone sat down. They did not do so during Alice Cooper. And I really hate to mention it, but Gillan's voice is clearly diminished. Don't hate me but I couldn't help but notice he was speaking at several moments, and he totally avoided screaming majic woman during Fireball.

Plus, Purple did not turn up the volume of the songs until Perfect Strangers, so the band appeared to be the weaker act in comparison to Alice Cooper when they played their first few songs. Highway Star should have been saved to the end for the wow factor rather than playing Hush. It was wasted as the opener played at a lower volume at the beginning of the set. Maybe they should have opened with Time for Bedlam or Fireball instead. However, Perfect Strangers and Uncommon Man (once in the song proper) were majestic.

Since this is Purple's last tour, I expected more from them. Due to the fact that there was three bands last night, there was no encore from Purple. Rather, I was disappointed that Purple could have been better. Don't get me wrong, Purple were good. But clearly they were not the headliners at the concert last night. I should have avoided seeing them as they sounded fantastic the last time I saw them in concert during the orchestra tour.

Re:


Plus, I'm getting the feeling that, when I see Purple, I've been there and done that. Purple are sounding the same now to all of the live albums I have from their time with Morse. They don't sound fresh, but rather, the same. I'm glad I got to say goodbye last night though ... for the first time since Ritchie left last night, I wanted him back in the band. Because I felt that Blackmore possibly could have brought more power to the band last night.

Other bands have been kicking DPs butt for many years now I can remember as far back as the SECC in Glasgow in 2003 and Lynryd Skynryd blew them away!!! The fire and excitement left long ago sadly

I understand this post - my friend was in Atlanta and IG suffers with throat infection or very serious case of cold (aka UK Feb 2002 tour; obviously caused by difference between very hot and humid weather and cold air-conditioned places) - heard he was unable to speak before gig. In case of solo tour of DP they would possibly cancel these affected gigs, but in case of multiact gig its not that easy... emoticon Also, shortening the set compared to EU tour is bad - these double acts are wrong decision. emoticon

They should have repeat 2015 way of touring - they performed full gigs there.

19th August - IG relatively fine:

21th August - Atlanta - stricken by cold in full power:

Obvious difference I think. It will take some time (and few gigs) to get from it. emoticon

UK weather in February 2002 is not hot and humid. Whatever caused this "throat infection or a cold was not hot and humid weather.

Yep as far as I remember, Jon said that illness got through whole band on that particular tour and despite IG tried as much as possible to go on, they had to cancel the tour at the end. Whole band was sick step by step and IG was the last one.
