After exactly 45 years Deep Purple were hosted by famous BBC Radio2 program, simply titled “In Concert”. Although it’s fairly strange that the band were guests last time in March 1972 when they were introducing their upcoming album “Machine Head”, which became a sheer rock classic to this date.
Even the most interesting thing was that featured the very first performance of “Smoke On The Water” in front of any audience. This time around Purple performed a subtle set of songs including four tracks from their latest “inFinite” album, with some interesting classics by the likes of “Bloodsucker” and “Fireball”.
Deep Purple continues to rock all over the world, promoting their latest album “Infinite”, you can see below an awesome animated video for the track “The Surprising”.
With many with many references from the group’s discography, the video shows Ian Gillan, Ian Paice, Roger Glover, Don Airey and Steve Morse in a fantastic journey through the snow.
The video was directed and illustrated by Matt Rooke, alongside director Peter Rogers, who also produced the video together with Craig Hooper and Collin Games, known from the Deep Purple movie documentary “From Here To inFinite”.
The documentary will be released in November and It shows the history and origin of “inFinite” and provides a deep insight into the workings of the band for the first time on Blu-ray.
