[ d e e p P u r . p l e ) The Highway Star

Oklahoma setlist...

Deep Purple did a great show in the heat of Oklahoma. It was probably close to 100F (38C).

The setlist was as follows:

-"woman From Tokyo"
-"Ted The Mechanic"
-"Knocking At Your Back Door"
-"No One Came"
-"Perfect Strangers"
-"When A Blind Man Cries"
-Steve's riff raff ("Tush", "Purple Haze", "Sunshine Of Your Love", "Day Tripper", "Pretty Woman", "La Grange")
-"Smoke On The Water"

-"Highway Star"

It was a wonderful show but unfortunately too short (70 min). I wish they would have played at least one song from "In Rock": "Child In Time", "Speed King" or "Black Night". I would have liked to hear more recent songs as well ("Anya", "The Battle Rages On") or Coverdale-period songs ("Burn", "Stormbringer").

PS: At the merchandising booth, I was thrilled that they were selling the "Smoke On The Water" shaped CD and the program of the "Concerto" tour.
