What tracks from Whoosh would you like to hear live when the band resumes touring? You can choose up to 4 (yeah, we know, we know, but let’s be realistic). The poll closes in a week, on September 15, just before midnight UTC.

    The Long Way Around is a definite opener to my ears, reminding the drive, power and fun of Ted the Mechanic, I also love the chilled interlude of Ian G & Steve somewhere inbetween the song.

    Remission Possible would take the turn of instrumental part of the show followed by the magnificient Man Alive – I’d die to hear that sound of time tickling live.

    No Need to Shout has the power, and Don’s piano part would drive fans crazy.

    Throw My Bones and Nothing At All – well, the hits – obviously, yes!

    And The Address can be perfectly coupled with Hush as an encore,

    The Long Way Round-Should’ve been the album opener.Would work well on stage.

    Nothing At All- Seems to be the best of the singles.A catchy concert tune.

    No Need To Shout- Retire Hell To Pay.Here’s the new sing-a-long chorus chant.

    Power Of The Moon-Would be a great lead-in to Birds Of Prey

    Nothing at all is absolutely amazing. The guitar and keyboard combination is stunning.
    The Long Way Around has the energy to become a live classic.
    The Power of the Moon: the deep of Deep Purple: classic song.
    Drop the Weapon has the energy for the live set.

    Drop Hush as an encore and replace it with And The Address and after that Remission Possible (with Steve’s amazing guitar).

    George Martin says:

    Yes drop Peter Gunn or Green Onions before Hush and do the complete And The Address
    instead of about 45 seconds of it like they with Peter Gunn or Green Onions. I’m Kinda suprised there aren’t more votes for What The What. It’s a great rock and roll number and that’s what Deep Purple is all about. Throw My Bones, Remission Possible & Man Alive should be there too. Right now I just want touring to happen!

    D'ablo Bicasso says:

    Honestly the album in its entirety would be awesome

    Ivica says:

    “Nothing At All” and “Throw My Bones” two classic album must be setlist , third song one faster sequel to “Time For Bedlam” is “The Long Way Around”, the fourth? … “No Need To Shout” or “Drop The Weapon” “, and of course” And the Address “as 00 song intro in concert or an ancore ” Hush “.

    I can’t agree more with Giorgi!

    why do you have to pick at least ons??. the album is very weak and certainly no live material. specially considering they tend to stay very close to the studio version these days. no extended solos no surprises….too bad.

    Andy Bennett says:

    Would like to see them play mainly the stuff off last 3 albums if possible.

    Blackwood Richmore says:

    @1 Giorgi, you’ve echoed my thoughts exactly!.
    But hey, wouldn’t it be sweet if they also played that unreleased song called “Long time gone” from 20 years ago?.

    Gary O Kane says:

    Like them to play live full album live in Japan

    Martín Correa says:

    As i take a look to the early results, i’m worried about Step by Step not getting the love it deserves. It’s, in my opinion, the greatest track in the album. I’m also aware that it may be difficult to pull that out live for the band.

    Fernando Mattedi says:

    It will be great to hear some tunes live from WHOOSH, but anything that comes will be replacing Infinite songs, so it will be 3 songs, if so, making the setlist.

    Probably the singles – Man Alive, Nothing at All and Throw my bones.
    My wishlist would be Power to the Moon and the Long Way Around …

    Cheers !!!

    None thank you

    Rost says:

    The problem is just limitation to 4 songs. I’m personally would prefer at least 6 songs (of cause Step by Step in).
    My personal thought the current DP should play at least half of the set list Morse era songs.
    I’m tired from almost the same set list over last 15+ years. Gillan unable to sang Mk2 songs any more, Morse never played it well due to his lack of improvisation compare to Great Ritchie.
    Highway star as an opener, smoke, Speed King would be nice return (drop out completely black night, skow and hush), I would like them play something from HOBL, maybe something from PS (but not PS itself) and the rest Morse-era songs from 1996 to 2020.

    Rick Kidd says:

    Play it All!

    mike whiteley says:

    @ 17 Rost- Since we are in a highly theoretical area, I’d even go so far as to suggest an All Morse-era set. 12-15 songs in the running order of your choice. Now that we have 7 albums to pick from, it would not be easy to decide what to leave out.Another poll for a rainy day ??

  20. 20
    Jeogger Matthews says:

    Agreed. They should do an entire tour with Morse era songs only.

    Keyboard Solo
    Perfect Strangers
    Guitar Solo
    Remission Possible
    Man Alive

    Highway Star
    Living Wreck
    The Long Way Around
    No One Came
    Throw My Bones
    Pictures Of Home
    The Battle Rages On
    Woman From Tokyo
    Sometimes I Feel Like Screaming
    Nothing At All
    The Power Of The Moon
    Knockin’ At Your Back Door
    And The Address/Hush
    Perfect Strangers
    Smoke On The Water

    Speed King (with Bass & drum solo)
    Black Night

    Dr. Bob says:

    You can’t do a cover of your own song and not put it on the setlist. I always felt like you can’t separate And the Address & Hush. That tandem has to be the encore.

    Long Way Round and Throw My Bones are my other choices.
