    Mistreated

    Encore:

    Highway Star

    Burn

  • I'm going to Barcelona [from UK] next week...Any reports on the merch yet or is it the same as the previous run of the Classic DP tour?

  • What I was hoping for this tour was that Glenn and his band would play the complete Burn album, including lesser known classics as Lay Down Stay Down, What’s Going On Here and A 200. Maybe later in the tour?

    It’s a great band with oustanding Ash Sheehan on drums :)

    Yes, I too thought that that was the plan. Was surprised to see CTTB songs and Highway Star in setlist.

    ...can we get TDD back? ;)

  • Having now watched this show in its entirety it is clear that Glenn overdoes the falsetto screams in a big way. I wish someone would say to him, try to leave them out for one night and see how it goes down. Let the music speak for itself. Less is sometimes more. His singing voice is still so good that he doesn't need to resort to screaming to get his point across. He would still be the VOR, so to speak. Hopefully the next tour will feature "Glenn - the artist". Imagine a setlist empty on DP but instead covering Trapeze and his solo catalogue, with just his voice in focus and no screaming. Songs like Seafull, Coast to Coast etc. I think it would go down just as well.

    When the third vocal improv segment starts in Mistreated, it has overstayed its welcome. Again, less is more.

    On a happier note, Soren really nails Ritchie's tone. Clearly the right guy for this tour.
