Deep Purple are sharing previews of classic tracks from a pair of forthcoming live albums, “From The Setting Sun… (In Wacken)” and “…To The Rising Sun (In Tokyo).”
Due August 28 (September 18 in North America), “From The Setting Sun… (In Wacken)” sees the group captured in concert at Germany’s Wacken Open Air Festival in 2013, while “…To The Rising Sun (In Tokyo)” presents the group live at the Nippon Budokan in Tokyo in April of 2014.
Deep Purple are previewing video of “Space Truckin’” compiled from both packages and “Perfect Strangers” from the Tokyo set.
“One band, two crowds, two countries – a tale of two cities indeed,” says bassist Roger Glover. “From Germany’s Wacken Open Air Festival, one of the biggest metal festivals in the world – and a city unto itself – to Japan and the stately Nippon Budokan, the most revered venue in Tokyo. Each with its own distinct personality.”
“From The Setting Sun… (In Wacken)” and “…To The Rising Sun (In Tokyo)” will be available on 2CD+DVD, DVD, Blu-ray (Tokyo performance), Blu-ray 3D (Wacken performance) and 3LP Gatefold.
Deep Purple will wrap up a summer tour of North America this weekend.
