Deep Purple Shares Previously Unreleased Live “Demon’s Eye” Video
The unreleased 2005 performance of Deep Purple’s 1971 classic, “Demon’s Eye” is the latest addition to their series of remastered videos put up for streaming.
The band claimed that this version has not been released on any Deep Purple CD or Video. They stated on the video’s description:
“From the Vault: this restored video, filmed during the ´Rapture of the Deep Tour´ (3 September 2005 at Polo Express, Düsseldorf, Germany) was used for the album TV promotion in Europe.
“We hope you enjoy it!”
“Demon’s Eye” originally appeared on the group’s fifth studio album Fireball. This is a self-produced project, which secured Deep Purple their first UK No. 1 record, while also topping the charts in multiple European countries.
Currently, Deep Purple is on a break from their 2022 tour. However, it will be resumed on September 23 with an appearance at Spain’s Stone Music Festival, with dates scheduled in late November.
The iconic rockers recently updated their supporters that their guitarist, Steve Morse, has left the band after more than 25 years to care for his wife who is battling stage 4 cancer. The singer and guitarist Simon McBride stepped in to cover for Morse earlier this year before the change became permanent.
Deep Purple’s latest album is the 2021 covers collection, Turning To Crime. Stream the song below.
