Purple smokes with Norum

At Deep Purple’s show in Ystad, Sweden last, guitarist John Norum from Europe (who supported Purple) got onstage to jam on “Smoke on the Water”.


Steve Morse and John Norum preceded the song with a lengthy jam – with Ian Paice and Roger Glover looking on – before tearing into the Purple classic.


The show’s setlist was:

Into the Fire
Strange Kind of Woman
Rapture of the Deep
Kiss Tomorrow Goodbye
Contact Lost
Sometimes I Feel Like Screaming
Wring That Neck
Well Dressed Guitar
The Battle Rages On
Perfect Strangers
Space Truckin’
Highway Star
Smoke on the Water

Black Night

    Well, as many ones expected, Sometimes I Feel Like Screaming finally certainly ‘permanently’ made its way into the set list as this tour goes on. It’s absolutely classic and fan favorite, isn’t it? That’s a pity they(DP) did not realize that since the beginning of this tour. Agree?
    John Norum is a very talented underrated guitarist from my favorite band, Europe(beside DP of course). Remember solo from The Final Countdown? Uh, wish I could be there watching two of my guitar heroes in action. Oh God, it can’t be better in the real world!!!

    have followed dp from their beginings,for me there will be only one guitarist “jimmy page” and only one singer”ian gillan”
    there other line up have been great but…..there’s only one purple line up for me.
    have listened to “blackmoors nights”they are great but…..just wish he would do one more tour with the original purple,just to complete their standing as one of the best rock bands of all time.
