"Around The World Live" is British hard rock band Deep Purple's four DVD box-set. It was released on May 19, 2008. The box-set includes four live performances of Deep Purple World Tour (1996-2008), two full time documentary films about the band and rare footage, including interviews, after-show parties and the band on the road, during the tour.Live performances are from Purpendicular and Abandon tours.

Two DVDs from this box-set have already been released: Bombay Calling and .

The NEC 2002 show contains exclusive live-material, when Deep Purple former organist and keyboardist Jon Lord joined the band on stage, for several songs, playing with current keyboardist Don Airey

Access All Areas DVD is the definitive documentary of Deep Purple from 1968 to 2007, emphasising the Steve Morse era. [ [ The Highway Star — Around The World Live ] ] DVD4 in the upcoming box set, listed below as "Documentary film about the Steve Morse era" is a 90 minute edit of a fly-on-the-wall 'Access All Areas', which has been in production for some years.

Following the Total Abandon tour of Australia in 1999, it was decided to document life on the road with the band. Collated primarily over a four year period and starting in Japan 2000, Ian Gillan, Ian Paice and Drew Thompson collected vision from the tours.

According to Drew: "it's an amazing insight into life on the road, and takes a look at elements of touring never really seen. It was never meant to showcase the performances from this period, but shows life on the road as it really happens; the fun, the humour, the politics and the camaraderie. The transition period of Jon Lord leaving the band and Don Airey reinvigorating proceedings has been captured at close hand, beautifully complimenting the live NEC performance. This is a must see for any fan of the band."

The full "Access All Area" documentary runs to beyond 3 hours, and has been edited down for the new DVD package. Drew expects that later in 2008 a full length version will be released. If it is, that may leave the NEC 2002 show as the only disc exclusive to 'Around The World'. The new documentary leans heavily on material which first appeared on the Gillancam feature on Ian Gillan's 2007 effort Highway Star. [ [ Deep Purple Mk8 - news ] ]
