Reunion Deep Purple concert on VH1 Classic cable station


I just got off the phone with an individual in programming concerning the possibility of showing one of the DP shows from '84-85. Either Sydney '84 or Providence RI '85. He was quite knowledgeable about Purple. Basically he said that they don't have the resources to track down the shows and who has the rights but it is the band label or the management that normally will contact them to promote the bands due to a upcoming tour or DVD release. It was quite an interesting conversation and I understand a little more how some of this stuff works. Anyway, if I could find out who actually holds the rights to these 2 shows maybe I can start there.

I am only a fan who wants to see these shows. And I am willing to do what I can to see them aired after all these years.

Don´t really care if it´s aired or not, as long as it´s available in trading circles. And if that guy is right, it will be a cold day in hell, before Gillian and innmates ask´s for a Blackmore era show as promotion for an upcoming Machine Head tour.

I saw a concert clip of Under the Gun and Nobody's Home from around that time on VH1 and they are awesome . If they plan on airing the entire show that'll be great. The sound and coverage is very good.

Providence,RI is about 25 minutes from here. That is a rather small venue (Providence Civic Center,) which would make for nice filming.....that would go nicely with my collection!!

 I was just wondering if anything ever turned up, RIJIR...?

No. Not yet. I am still trying to track down some information regarding broadcast rights on the shows. Maybe if I have that info it will help.
