Only 4,5 tracks from Bananas?


In Brazil they played House of Pain, Silver Tongue, Contact Lost, Haunted, I Got Your Number and Bananas, but then dropped Bananas and played Space Truckin' instead. Only 4,5 tracks (I count Contact Lost only as a half...) from the new album? I think in Europe they have to play more new stuff and maybe some surprises, too. They have been playing so many times before, that we need something very different now! What do you think?

Re: Only 4,5 tracks from Bananas?


I answered Hodge yesterday the same I'll answer you. I only can hope that there are any Banana-tunes left when they arrive here in Denmark. Am bored of the everlasting repetation of the setlist.

and here comes something new emoticon
If I hear all the wellknown stuff without any surprises and new tracks it's time for me to visit Purple only all 5 years once.

I know there are many out who like only to hear the old stuff, so what Purple ever do it will be the wrong thing. No easy decision.

I hope they play Silver Tongue and House of Pain and maybe Picture of Innocence and then we will see. I would like to hear songs like Strange Kind of Woman and Fools again and No No No! And I would like to start them with SOTW and play Watching the Sky and SIFLS as an encore - but so it is you can ask 100 hundred people what they want to hear and you will get 100 different setlists. But what I hope is, that they change the setlist more often! dd

Would be more than happy to hear 'Bananas' played thru' tracks 1 - 12 as set list with 'WDG'/'Doing It Tonight' as encores. Enough of the 'Greatest Hits' Tours!

me too!

But 4 songs from the new album was very much standard douring the reunion, remember the bit on CHOHW where Big Ian talks about being happy to have 4 songs that worked live for them from the new album. Of course more new ones was played when Steve was a new kid to reflect on his playing / songwriting. But Don isn't as big a change ( in sound ) as Steve was, so they don't need to focus as much on the new kid as they have in the past. Shame really.

But then they soon begun to drop the new songs in favour of the oldies again. I can see the same thing happening again. They will play maybe four or five from the new album and in a year or two, they wont play any, just the usuals. Thats if they follow their usual trend.

Doesnt everybody?

Ive never seen a band that keeps 5 songs from the CD before last - its always a collection from the latest release, and the best of the rest.

Speed King, Woman From Tokyo, Black Night, Smoke, Perfect Strangers, Ted the Mechanic and Space Truckin' RARE??? To me "rare" means, that they haven't played these songs a thousand times already (or at least not during the last tours).

What about Flight of the Rat, Rat Bat Blue, Demon's Eye, Living Wreck, Strangeways, Anya or '69? My dream list would contain about 6 such songs together with about 6 songs from Bananas and some classics.
