Total Abandon: Australia '99 is a double live album and DVD by British hard rock band Deep Purple, recorded at Melbourne Park in Melbourne, Australia on 20 April 1999. Initially the album was available only in Australia (from Sept 1999). From 12 October 1999 it was made available as a mail order merchandise in Europe and later was also sold in music stores. In USA the album wasn't released until 2012 (this edition was cut to only one disc).

The album was accompanied in Australia by two collector edition singles: "Smoke On The Water" with disc cut into shape of the Australian continent, and "Black Night", which disc was manufactured in shape of the DP logo.
