    We will hear more of these major events in the comming months as a sure bet that this will be their farewell tour.

    Farwell tour – yes, but only if the new CD is not a 5* rock CD, that can bring new life to the Blackmore set they are touring with the last 10 years – or since Blackmore was around.
    I find it strange that Morse has played more Blackmore tunes with Purple than Blackmore himself. It says it all. New energy on the guitar = new man. Im sorry, but can it be different?

    I think you’re totally missing the point here, if you remember Ritchie was a member of Purple in their MK1, MK2, MK3, and MK5 days.

    What shows the fact that Ritchie still played more Ritchie tunes in his career with Purple then Steve did and that’s a fact.
