Deep Purple – Perfect Strangers Live Tour Documentary

by Jon Bloggin' Rogo

Here's a tour documentary featured on the new Deep Purple DVD, Perfect Strangers Live:

Released last month, the project captures the 1984 long-awaited reunion of the classic Deep Purple Mark II lineup of Ritchie Blackmore, Ian Gillan, Roger Glover, Jon Lord and Ian Paice. It was the first time they had been together since 1973.  The lineup recorded a brand new studio record titled Perfect Strangers and headed out on tour to promote it. The band's show in Melbourne, Australia was professionally filmed and is the only full-length concert recording of Deep Purple at this time.  The Perfect Strangers Live DVD mixes then-new tracks from the Perfect Strangers album with favorites from the early 70's.  This spring, Deep Purple released their latest record, NOW What?! and are nominated to be inducted into the Rock N' Roll Hall of Fame spring 2014.
