1984 saw the long-awaited reunion of the classic Deep Purple Mark II line-up of Ritchie Blackmore, Ian Gillan, Roger Glover, Jon Lord and Ian Paice. It was the first time they had been together since 1973. They recorded a brand new studio album, Perfect Strangers and headed out on tour. This show was filmed in Melbourne, Australia and is the only full length concert film of the band at this time.
A taste of the show has been released – check out ‘Perfect Strangers’ below:
Perfect Strangers Live – due out October 14th via Eagle Vision – is a stunning concert with the band in incendiary form.
