Whitesnake revisited the music that singer David Coverdale recorded with Deep Purple with the release of The Purple Album two years ago. The LP, and the tour that followed, offered fans new modern interpretations of Purple classics like “Burn” and “Mistreated.” Highlights from the historic tour will be featured in a new live collection, including double-disc versions that feature audio, video and a selection of bonus material.
The Purple Tour (Live) will be available on January 19 as CD/DVD and CD/Blu-ray sets. Additional formats include a double-LP, single CD, and digital version.
Coverdale told Ultimate Classic Rock about the “Burn” clip: “It is un-fucking-believable. It’s a full-production video. We worked with a young, hip gunslinger Canadian director called Tyler Bourns. And he’s kick-fucking-ass. He did all of the videos with us on The Purple Album. He’s the head of our video creative ops and a great guy as well.”
