Live in Europe 1993 (alternative title: On Tour MCMXCIII) is a live box set containing two concerts recorded by Deep Purple in 1993.

The first recording is from a show on 16 October at the Schleyerhalle in Stuttgart, Germany. The second is from a show at the National Exhibition Centre in Birmingham, England on 9 November, which would be the final show Ritchie Blackmore did with Deep Purple in England.

The live album Come Hell or High Water from 1994 was recorded at this Stuttgart show. The Birmingham show was released on DVD as Come Hell or High Water in 1994.

The second concert was subsequently re-released in 2007 under the title Live at the NEC. Ian Gillan advised fans not to buy this release, describing the performance as one of the band's worst.[1]
