Live at the Rotterdam Ahoy is a live album recorded by Deep Purple on the 30th of October 2000 and released in 2001. It includes most of a concert performed in Rotterdam, Holland during the 2000/2001 "Concerto Tour". The Concerto for Group and Orchestra itself was performed, but it does not appear on the album due to "legal requirements" (according to the liner notes). Some tracks are solo compositions by members of the band, two are songs originally recorded by guest Ronnie James Dio, and the remainder are a mix of new and old Deep Purple songs.
