1984 saw the 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. They recorded a brand new studio album, Perfect Strangers, and headed out on tour. The band’s show in Melbourne, Australia was professionally filmed and is the only full-length concert recording of the band at this time.
The Perfect Strangers Live DVD is due out October 14th via Eagle Vision and is a stunning concert with the band in incendiary form. The setlist mixes then new tracks from the Perfect Strangers album with favorites from the early seventies culminating in the brilliant Smoke On The Water finale. This is without doubt one of the finest Deep PURPLE concerts ever filmed and a must have for their legions of fans.

Although, Jon Bon Jovi has publicly said that guitarist Richie Sambora can return to the band at any time, behind the scenes it’s a different story, RadarOnline has learned.
Sambora, who was born and raised in Woodbridge, N.J., is eager to take the stage with the band Thursday night in East Rutherford, but that homecoming is not going to happen, and Jon is the one blocking it, a source tells Radar. Not only that, but he’s also blocking Sambora from rejoining the band on its Because We Can world tour.
“Jon won’t allow Richie to come back for that show,” the source said. “And Jon won’t even pick up the phone and talk to Sambora. Sambora has tried to end this feud but Jon won’t respond.”
Richie believes Jon has been trash talking him, the source said, and has asked him to stop.
“Every attempt he has made at rejoining the band has been blocked by Jon,” the source added.
Sambora left the tour in April after feuding with Bon Jovi over money and Richie’s objection to his belief that Jon was belittling him. One source says the guitar player and lead singer are fighting over money.
“It’s very apparent Jon wants to get rid of Richie,” the source says. “Jon is raking in the money. And what about the fans who want Richie back?” The source says Jon doesn’t care.
“Jon is and has been focused on accumulating as much money as possible to accomplish his lifelong goal of buying a NFL football team. Bon Jovi took a serious look at the NY Jets years ago as a partner but now wants his own team and money is the only thing stopping him.”
Meanwhile, without Richie the band had to cancel an appearance in Cleveland because of lackluster ticket sales. Other venues have not sold out and also suffered from lagging sales without Sambora.
On July 23rd, 2013, Eagle Rock Entertainment will release Rock For The Rising Sun by Aerosmith. This is a simultaneous release on DVD, Blu-ray and digital formats [Pre-book Order Date June 28th, MSRP $19.98 Blu-ray, $14.98 DVD].
This is the band’s first live video release in 9 years, since the release of You Gotta Move in 2004 and it offers a unique portrayal of life on the road with Aerosmith combined with superb live performances, as the band toured Japan. Rock For The Rising Sun features the classic tracks: Love In An Elevator, Livin’ On The Edge, Last Child, Walk This Way, Draw The Line, Sweet Emotion, Hangman Jury, and many more, with material drawn from shows throughout this tour. As bonuses, the DVD includes extra live tracks, Lick And A Promise recorded at the Hiroshima Green Garden Arena and One Way Street taken from the Tokyo Dome.
In March 2011, Japan was beset by a huge earthquake, a monstrous tsunami and the subsequent meltdown of the Fukushima nuclear plant. In the autumn of 2011, despite advice to the contrary, Aerosmith brought their Back On The Road tour to Japan, a country with which they’d always had a special relationship. The Japanese fans came out in droves and Aerosmith responded with some of the finest shows of their distinguished career. This film follows the band on that tour combining full-length live tracks with behind the scenes footage, which is at times touching and emotional and at others humorous and insightful. More than anything else it demonstrates the Japanese fans’ love affair with Aerosmith and their music.
Aerosmith are truly one of the great rock acts of all time and this incredible concert film brings together tracks from across their storied career. A live band par excellence, Rock For The Rising Sun shows them rolling up their sleeves and doing what they do better than anyone else.

Viewers will witness the band’s camaraderie and spirit, which have kept them together for 35 years despite many challenges and temptations.”
The series will include performance footage along with scenes which will show a side of the band fans have never seen before.
It’s set to be the first in a series of similar shows. AEG president John Meglan says: “This is sure to set a precedent for a new genre of TV custom-made for the ultimate rock fans.”
