    Great performance by Purple. Morse was amazing. Iam Paice was on fire. Lots of fun to watch again.

    Showing Montreux 2006 live, isn’t enough for promoting the upcoming US Tour of Purple, because TicketMaster says that ticket sales are critically low.

    for example, look at this one: http://www.livenation.com/event/02004672A3E8732A?crosssite=TM_US:734897:16839

    or this one: http://www.livenation.com/event/1C004695E28F6DDB?crosssite=TM_US:734897:229503

    Unfortunately I think they’ll have to cancel most of the shows, if they’re not going to play in the nearly empty amphitheaters of course.

    Really great performance from the band @ Montreux. Disc two is my favorite though, a live performance @ the House Of Blues in Atlantic City New Jersey was just fantastic.

    @10 yes 1996 montreux dvd show is probably one of the best deep purple gig ever…a lot better than the 2006 one…incredible energy by the band and Gillan in wonderful shape…with nec 2002 my favourite dvd!

    @George – I am having a hard time finding any sales information on the pages you linked. Can you please point out where it says they’re ‘extremely low in sales’ -because I don’t see anything about that. Deep Purple and the US have nothing to do with each other, they were fed up on the tour in 2007, because of the cancellation of the 2006 proper Rapture tour they had planned with Aerosmith. My friends, it’s over for this band in America for touring and they can care less, and so can I. 2004 is likely the last time I will ever see them unless I go to another country AGAIN. I just don’t see them giving a flying flip about it.

    @Roberto, the Montreux 96 would be a much better video if they kept the introduction with Claude Nobs on it where he and the band were on stage together. A good copy of the bootleg is worth seeking out for this.

    About 2 yrs ago I mailed one of the top dogs on the ‘Sky Arts’ channel & asked for this concert to be featured.

    Some months later it appeared several times over a few months.

    Coincidence? Hmmmmmmm
