Deep Purple: "Live at Rockpalast, 1985"; Complete Concert

This recording took place on the 9th of July, 1985, in the Palais Omnisports, in Paris. The editorial staff of Rockpalast were the only ones in Europe that were given the possibility of recording a concert from Deep Purple.

In 1984, Deep Purple Mark II reformed itself for the second time, released an album and went on a world tour lasting from November '84 until July '85. There were sold-out stadiums and enthused audiences everywhere . Likewise, the band also had fun and thanked their fans, giving them a complete mixture of favorites and new songs in a two-hour concert. At these concerts, it was probably also clear that Deep Purple certainly was a lot more than just the sum of it's five band members.

Deep Purple toured almost constantly until 1987; afterwards, after releasing the new album, "House of the Blue Light", they went on a world tour again. In 1990, another studio LP was released with Lynn Turner replacing Gillan; however, Gillan returned in 1992. During the tour in 1993, Ritchie Blackmore left the band, after having problems. He was replaced with Joe Satriani until Steve Morse took the place as a guitar player.
