Also included in this amazing package will be the first time ever seen backstage videos. Go behind the scenes with Rainbow. Special interviews exclusive to this video set with Ritchie Blackmore, Ronnie Romero, Jens Johansson, Bob Nouveau, drummer David Keith, the lovely backing singers Lady Lynn and Candice Night – as well as the phenomenal crew that brings these shows to the fans; production managers, lighting director, guitar technician etc. Over 1 hour of special backstage interviews and impromptu footage. This is the most unique Rainbow package ever released!
The set-list, combining classic tracks from both Deep Purple and Rainbow, was exactly what the fans have requested most and will be found in this double CD package. A few of the highlights are “Spotlight Kid”, “I Surrender”, “Mistreated”, “Man on the Silver Mountain/ Woman from Tokyo”, “Perfect Strangers”, “Black Night” and “Smoke on the Water” – each with Ritchie Blackmore's stellar performance on guitar and solos executed to perfection by the master. His brilliant fret work can never be duplicated and is clearly a highlight of each track of this double CD package.
