Later on this summer and after their Toronto concert, Deep Purple plan to release two live recordings of the band in action. “From The Setting Sun…” captured in Germany at the Wacken Open Air festival and “To The Rising Sun” which was captured in Tokyo Japan using multiple HD camera at both shows…which will be available on Blu-Ray with the Wacken concert available in Blue-Ray 3D. Both titles will be available as two CD/DVD’s or three LP sets as well.
Deep Purple’s Roger Glover commented on both releases saying, “In the sunset, we were treated to a great welcome from the sea of tattoos and black leather facing us”, and about the Tokyo set he wrote, “…young and old, sitting patiently or chatting quietly — the embodiment of civility. It’s almost like the respectful hush one might find in a cathedral. But they’re here to rock. And rock they do. They may be quiet while they’re waiting but far from shy during the show. They gave us an unforgettable evening. Thank you, Tokyo.”
Q107 presents Deep Purple at the Molson Canadian Amphitheatre July 20th and the live recordings drop August 28th.
