Are You Ready To ROCK WITH US???!!!

Whitesnake’s New Live Collection Highlights Singer David Coverdale’s Time In Deep Purple With Performances Of Deep Purple And Whitesnake Classics

Multiple Versions Available for Pre-Order NOW!

Whitesnake revisited the music that singer David Coverdale recorded with Deep Purple in the Seventies when they released The Purple Album two years ago. The album, and the tour that followed, offered fans new modern interpretations of Purple classics like “Burn” and “Mistreated.” Highlights from the historic tour will be featured in a new live collection, including double-disc versions that feature audio, video and a selection of bonus material.

THE PURPLE TOUR (LIVE) will be available as CD/DVD ($24.98) or CD/Blu-ray ($26.98) sets. Additional formats include a double-LP ($29.98), single CD ($15.98), and digital version.

On THE PURPLE TOUR (LIVE), Whitesnake puts their distinctive spin on several songs from Coverdale’s studio albums with Deep Purple – Burn (1974), Stormbringer (1974), and Come Taste The Band (1975). Highlights include: “You Fool No One,” “The Gypsy” and “Soldier Of Fortune.” The double-disc collection also includes video footage of the concert mixed to 5.1 Surround Sound, plus a new music video for “Burn,” band interviews, and a number of bonus performances not available on the CD or vinyl versions.

The Whitesnake line-up that appears on THE PURPLE TOUR (LIVE) includes: singer David Coverdale, guitarists Reb Beach and Joel Hoekstra, bassist Michael Devin, drummer Tommy Aldridge and keyboardist Michele Luppi.

Coverdale says there was never any intention to compete against the original recordings. “We just wanted to play the damn songs. Each member of the band. brought their incredible individual talents and a real band identity to this music. We’ve all done the best we can with this project with respect to the music, and the legacy of Deep Purple Mk3 and Mk4.”

In addition to songs originally recorded by Deep Purple, THE PURPLE TOUR (LIVE) also features performances of killer Whitesnake tracks like “Fool For Your Loving” from Slip Of The Tongue (1990), “Love Ain’t No Stranger” from Slide It In (1984), plus “Still Of The Night,” “Bad Boys,” “Is This Love” and the #1 smash “Here I Go Again” from Whitesnake (1987).

      The links are being worked out between Warner and Amazon, and there was a mess up which wasn’t caught until we’d already posted here and Facebook/Twitter. The links will be updated just as soon as we get them!

    It’s advertised as The Purple Tour. Yet out of 13 tracks, there’s only 5 Purple tracks.

    No Lady Double Dealer and Stormbringer? Those songs sounded f’n righteous when they were played in Tacoma!

      Stormbringer is included as a bonus live song on the DVD/Bluray

    As William Lee points out, a purple tour, yet just 5 tracks from the purple era. So what’s with Coming Home? It’s my favorite, and the best track on the Purple Album in my opinion, yet not played wasn’t played live so not on the live album. It just doesn’t make sense to me that Coning Home is ignored.

    Amazon.co.uk has changed the release date for the CD/DVD to 19th January 2018 but the CD/Bluray is still saying 24th November 2017
