This comment is going to upset people but this show was filmed at a time when Ian Gillan still had his voice. Gillan gave it his all and Blackmore reciprocated. It was only later that Gillan's drinking/smoking and all night parties cost him his voice (and subsequently Blackmore's respect. "Come Hell or High Water) I know, I can see the comments coming on how Blackmore did this and did that. For me after seeing the band many times, Blackmore was right.
The good news is that Gillan and Blackmore in particular are just incredible on this DVD! Of course the rest of the band are great too,..especially Paice, but it's the Gillan/Blackmore show on this night.Read more ›
A MUST!!!!! What a great show from a GREAT BAND! I will only say this once more, WHAT TOOK SO LONG!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I remember the band blowing the roof off the joint that night, and this DVD MUST be played in it's entirety to be fully experienced and appreciated. The DTS 5.1 mix, magnificent video and audio quality, and high-energy performance will chew you up, spit you out, blow you away, and leave you wanting more...Lol! :)
...I kid you not.
This lineup's unique chemistry is clearly evident here, while they were still having fun together—The show opens with "Highway Star", or course, and the first half will keep you captivated, no doubt...Then the second half, beginning with "Child in Time", with the echo-delay and timed harmonizer vocal effects done just right lends an atmosphere to the song like no other version you have heard or seen...unless, of course, that you saw them on that tour, as I did...
From there, the intensity level and top-shelf musicianship, tightness, cohesiveness and brilliant showmanship is sure to impress, as it builds and builds and finally explodes in audio and sonic majestic magnificence...
The bonus features a nice documentary on the tour, along with some interesting interviews and video clips...
This is to DVD concert films what "Made in Japan" is to records and CDs. IF you're a Deep Purple fan, and don't have this yet, what the heck are you waiting for? You just aged another day, fer cryin' out loud, heh heh...This one is essential. If you're NOT a DP fan, you WILL be after viewing this one.
Get the friggin' DVD, crank up the volume on your system, and

I saw this tour in 1985 in Houston TX and it was great. Glad to find a DVD of the show. I wish all the bands would release their concert films so we could relive the event.Published 1 month ago by EJW
I was a Junior in college when they got back together and gave us a very good new album in Perfect Strangers, followed by the tour that I thought would never happen. Read morePublished 1 month ago by Roger Brewer
No, this isn't from the Glory Days of "Made In Japan"..........but it's acceptably close. The video isn't bad at all for the year recorded, and 5. Read morePublished 3 months ago by Matthew Hartman
This is a very good concert, but they were better when I saw this concert live in the Twin Cities. As I remember Gillan was spot on that night and it was awesome. Read morePublished 4 months ago by SteveO
