deeppurple2011 Deep Purple will release their Live In Verona DVD and Blu-ray on October 20th through Eagle Rock Entertainment.

Filmed in the spectacular surroundings of the Arena di Verona, a Roman amphitheatre originally built in 30 AD, this concert from the summer of 2011 sees Deep Purple joined on stage by the German Neue Philarmonic Orchestra for performances of all the band’s classic tracks.

Deep Purple remains one of the finest hard rock bands on the planet and is undoubtedly at its best when performing live.

  1. 2014 and Deep Purple are still kicking butt! And they look like they’re having a great time on stage. I saw them for the first time on the tour for Perfect Strangers and Ritchie Blackmore looked like he wanted to be anywhere but on stage. The vibe on stage with Ritchie seemed weird, although they sounded great back then. But they just look like they’re having so much fun now.

    In the words of Eddie Trunk, “Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame, are you kidding me?!”

  2. Looking over the setlist above.. wow Steve Morse must feel like Tommy Thayer, 3/4 original era songs,no one cares about Non Mk2 DP songs.. no Ritchie no purchase
