Thanks to Fran from Rabbit Attack PR for the interview series. Here is Part III and IV of an Exclusive face to face Interview with the legendary Deep Purple Front Man Ian Gillan
Was it harder or easier to start in the music industry when you did?
How do you deal with any anticipation before going on stage?
Written by Roger Glover: One band, two crowds, two countries – a tale of two cities indeed. From Germany’s Wacken Open Air Festival, one of the biggest metal festivals in the world – and a city unto itself – to Japan and the stately Nippon Budokan, the most revered venue in Tokyo. Each with its own distinct personality.
“From The Setting Sun… (In Wacken)” has been filmed by 9 HD cameras at Wacken Open Air Festival 2013. For the first time in Deep Purple’s history, the band will release a 3D version of their performance on Blu-ray, filmed at Wacken.
“…To The Rising Sun (In Tokyo)” has been filmed by 12 HD cameras at Nippon Budokan, Tokyo in April 2014.
The audio of both shows has been mixed in Hamburg, Germany by Eike Freese and Alex Dietz (Heaven Shall Burn) with the supervision of Roger Glover.
