Geneva shoreline success

This time was excellent, stranger than perfect even, just fantastic.

Last time I had seen Purple was in Lyons, France, at the start of the Rapture tour, and I must say I felt a bit apprehensive this time, because Lyons had been, well, great of course, but without much soul.

Geneva set list:
Pictures of home
Things I never said
Into the Fire
Strange kind of Woman
Rapture of the Deep
Fireball
Wrong Man
Steve Morse solo and Well Dressed Guitar
When a Blind Man Cries

Don Airey solo
Perfect strangers
Space Truckin’
Highway Star

Encore:
Hush with Ian Paice solo
Roger Glover solo
Black Night

Deep Purple are welcome back to Geneva any time, the crowd was huge (by our standards), very enthusiastic.

The first three tracks were behind us before Ian Gillan talked to us, and he kept the chatter to a minimum, which was great, it means that we had solid music all evening.

There were some great intros to some tracks, keeping us guessing what was going to be played. Loved every second!
