Paris Moon is a long-form concert DVD/CD shot released by the band Blackmore's Night in 2007. This release celebrates the band's 10 year anniversary with a concert in the legendary Paris Olympia in 2006.

The band runs through a number of cover songs, including Jethro Tull's "Rainbow Blues," Joan Baez' "Diamonds and Rust," Joan Osborne's "Saint Teresa," and a couple songs from Ritchie's previous bands: Deep Purple's "Soldier of Fortune" and Rainbow's "Ariel" (though this song was actually written by Night and Blackmore).

Also included is a photo gallery with photos from the show, set to "Streets of London", sung by Night in French.

Included with the DVD is a CD containing nine tracks from the concert, as well as a studio version of "The Village Lanterne" and a radio edit of "All Because of You".

Paris Moon was nominated to the New Age Reporter Lifestyle Music Award in three categories: Best Vocal Album, Best Album and Best Celtic Album.[1]
