Deep Purple preview Graz 1975 live package

Deep Purple are sharing a trailer for their forthcoming live release, “Graz 1975”, one of the final concerts by the Mk III lineup of the band.

Due September 23, the set features guitarist Ritchie Blackmore, frontman David Coverdale, bassist/vocalist Glenn Hughes, keyboard player Jon Lord and drummer Ian Paice captured live on April 3, 1975 at the Liebenauer ice rink, located on the outskirts of mountain-cradled Graz, Austria’s second largest city after Vienna.

After Graz, the Mk III lineup would play just two more shows - in Saarbrücken, Germany and Paris, France - before Blackmore left to form his new band, Rainbow.

The remaining band members would regroup quickly with American guitarist Tommy Bolin.

“Graz 1975” will be available on CD, 2LP and digital audio.

Deep Purple recently wrapped up a month-long series of dates across North America.

The band have also been working on new music for the follow-up to 2013’s “NOW What?!” album.
