Eagle Rock Entertainment is releasing yet another new live Deep Purple recording this summer.

Deep Purple: Live at the NEC will be released Friday, August 26th.  It will be available on DVD ($14.99) and digital formats.  Originally recorded on September 14th, 2002 the hour and forty-nine minute concert was meant to pay tribute to founding member and keyboardist Jon Lord.  That is because earlier the same year, Lord had announced his retirement from the band.  After his announcement the band enlisted the help of Don Airey, who also joined the band at the concert along with Lord.  Airey served as principal keyboardist throughout the course of the concert.  Though, Lord made a very special appearance on ‘Perfect Strangers.’  The concert featured the lineup of Ian Gillan, Roger Glover, Steve Morse, Ian Paice, Jon Lord, and Don Airey.  The set list features a number of the band’s biggest hits including: ‘Highway Star,’ ‘Smoke on the Water,’ ‘Woman From Tokyo,’ ‘Space Truckin’,’ ‘Speed King,’ ‘Lazy,’ ‘Hush,’ and many others.  The concert’s full set list is noted below.  Along with its main feature, the DVD also features interviews with Ian Gillan and Roger Glover as bonus material.
