Notes:

First of a series focusing on the British rock band's last three decades of concerts around the world: an explosive show from Newcastle, Australia. With 120 million albums sold worldwide, Deep Purple are also one of the most loved British bands ever. Recently inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, they have inspired and shaped the taste of generations of hard rock musicians and fans with milestone albums like 'In Rock' or 'Machine Head' which are essential chapters in rock music history.

Some of these shows have previously been released as very rare fan club editions and others will be there for the first time. All of these recordings were remastered in 2019 to ensure optimal audio quality.

Roger Glover comments on the first chapter of this series: "After touring Australia in the early '70s, we returned in 1999 with Steve Morse on guitar. Australia welcomed us in 2001 with open arms. That's why we came up with something very special for this evening: we invited several singers and a few brass players. It was a very special and unique gig."
