Rhino EntertainmentIn 2015, Whitesnake released The Purple Album, which featured new versions of songs from singer David Coverdale‘s mid-1970s stint as Deep Purple‘s frontman, and also mounted a tour in support of the record. On November 24, Whitesnake will put out a CD/DVD and CD/Blu-ray set titled The Purple Tour (Live) that features performances from the trek.

The album and video discs feature live renditions of such Deep Purple gems as “Burn,” “Mistreated,” “Soldier of Fortune” and “The Gypsy,” along with such Whitesnake classics as “Here I Go Again,” “Still of the Night” and “Is This Love.” The DVD and Blu-ray also include interviews with some of Whitesnake’s members, an official music video for “Burn” and bonus high-resolution audio recordings of four concert performances.

Regarding what motivated Coverdale and his current group to revisit the singer’s work with Deep Purple, David says, “We just wanted to play the damn songs. Each member of the band brought their incredible individual talents and a real band identity to this music. We’ve all done the best we can with this project with respect to the music.”

Coverdale joined Deep Purple in 1973 and recorded three albums with the band — 1974’s Burn and Stormbringer, and 1975’s Come Taste the Band. He formed Whitesnake in 1978.

The Purple Tour (Live) also will be available as a single CD, a double-LP set featuring one bonus track and a digital download.
