Deep Purple have issued a performance clip of “Knockin’ At Your Back Door” as they release their new DVD, “Perfect Strangers Live”, today (and October 15 in North America).
The project captures the 1984 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.
The lineup 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 Deep Purple at this time.
The “Perfect Strangers Live” DVD mixes then-new tracks from the “Perfect Strangers” album with favourites from the early 70s.
Watch a performance of “Perfect Strangers” from the DVD here and of “Black Night” here.
This spring, Deep Purple released their new album, “NOW What?!”; the band launched a fall UK tour at the Manchester Apollo last Friday.
