Deep Purple Share ‘Rapture Of The Deep’ Performance Video

Deep Purple have shared a video of a previously-unreleased performance of the English hard rock band’s 2005 track, “Rapture Of The Deep.”

In a statement announcing the video, Deep Purple said the restored video was filmed on September 3, 2005, at Polo Express in Düsseldorf, Germany.

The video was recorded for the TV promotion of the band’s 18th studio album of the same name, Rapture Of The Deep.

“The title track was played live nearly every night during this tour and it became a solid presence in the band’s repertoire for many years to come (right up to today). This live version hasn’t been released on any Deep Purple CD or Video. We hope you enjoy it,” the statement added.

“Rapture of the Deep” was released as a promo single in 2005.

The album peaked at No. 43 Billboard’s USA Top Independent Albums chart. It also made the top 20 in several European charts.

Deep Purple will resume their 2022 tour on September 23 at Spain’s Stone Music Festival.
