Deep Purple are an English rock band formed in Hertford in 1968. Along with Led Zeppelin and Black Sabbath, they are considered to be among the
pioneers of heavy metal and modern hard rock, although some band members believe that their music cannot be categorised as belonging to any one genre.
They were once listed by the Guinness Book of World Records as "the loudest pop group", and have sold over 100 million albums worldwide. Deep Purple
were ranked #22 on VH1's Greatest Artists of Hard Rock programme.
Info about album
If Wacken shows Deep Purple's performance in front of a huge rock audience, playing as if they had to leave all their habits behind, the Tokyo
show is presenting Deep Purple completely at ease with their history and themselves. On the very same venue where the band has written rock history
with the album “Made In Japan”, Deep Purple went on stage without nostalgia and with the attitude of a band that is physically led by the music,
making playing a perfect show look as the most natural thing one could do. Song after song, Purple play a flawless show going back and forth in time.
Deep Purple's many sides are at their best here: the energy but also the groove, the great solo moments by Don Airey and Steve Morse. The soft
sides and their energetic heavy counterparts. Filmed by 12 HD cameras and recorded by a top mobile studio, the show offers one of the most magical
performances of the NOW What?! tour. Every member of the band is in fantastic form, the band being strong from a full tour together, and the
performance seems to be driving the band through the songs as if audience and band were suspended in time.
