Deep Purple: Don Airey Video Interview From Germany conducted an interview with Deep Purple keyboardist Don Airey on July 23rd in Dresden, Germany. You can now watch the chat below.

Deep Purple recently completed its first tour of North America in four years. The pioneering rock band - featuring classic members Ian Gillan (lead vocals), Roger Glover (bass) and Ian Paice (drums, percussion) - performed for the first time in the U.S. and Canada with a symphony orchestra in each city (except San Francisco). Fans were able to hear the band's trail-blazing iconic hits - including "Smoke On The Water""Highway Star", "Hush" and "Space Truckin'" - plus other favorites achieve a new dimension of sound with the added heft of a symphony orchestra. 

"This one isn't going to be orchestra-based so much as: It's the rock band Deep Purple playing, with strings and horns being added for some color textures," Deep Purple guitarist Steve Morse recently told The Star-Ledger. "We're not going to change the songs - I mean, there'll be a few little cameos and features - but the basic idea of the show is: We're doing what we do, and having more texture where it's appropriate."
