A brand new first glimpse of the band’s upcoming live CD/DVD releases has been revealed.
A clip of ‘Black Night’, a cut from From The Setting Sun (in Wacken), is now available for fans to watch. The full release will arrive as a 2CD set on 28th August, the same day the band is set to release another double-disc live set – To The Rising Sun (In Tokyo). Both titles will also be made available on DVD and Blu-ray, as well as triple-LP vinyl.
From The Setting Sun (In Wacken) will be of particular interest to Purple fans, as the concert was filmed using nine HD cameras, meaning any fans out there with a high-end home theatre set up will be available to watch the performance on Blu-ray 3D!
Watch the clip of ‘Black Night’ below to get an idea of how it all came together:
Talking to Ultimate Classic Rock about the double release, bassist Roger Glover said, “It was the record company’s idea to pair them together like that, but it’s kind of an interesting project. I don’t think anyone’s ever done that before, but it kind of highlights what we in the band go through. Every night we play is a different place, a different audience and a lot have similarities, of course. You know, most of it’s the same, but those two shows are kind of the extremes of one end to the other, I think.”
Glover also revealed that the band had started to think about their next project and had even managed to fit in some studio jamming sessions in between tour dates.
