Speaking of Deep Purple live, earMUSIC is gearing up to release two “must own” Deep Purple live releases from two different kinds of nights!

From the Setting Sun… (In Wacken) and …To The Rising Sun (In Tokyo) will be made available on 2CD+DVD, Blu-ray (Tokyo performance), Blu-ray 3D (Wacken performance), and 3 LPs on September 18 via earMUSIC.

The festival shows capture Deep Purple in their natural habitat — on stage.

From the Setting Sun… (In Wacken) was filmed by 9 HD cameras at Wacken Open Air Festival 2013. For the first time in Deep Purple’s history, the band will release a 3D version of their performance on Blu-ray, filmed at Wacken.

…To the Rising Sun (In Tokyo) was filmed by 12 HD cameras at Nippon Budokan, Tokyo in April 2014.

The audio of both shows has been mixed in Hamburg, Germany by Eike Freese and Alex Dietz (Heaven Shall Burn) with the supervision of Roger Glover.
