Ian Gillan Sings Deep Purple – Live in Skopje

Just wanted to share a couple of shots from a recent Ian Gillan concert. “Papa Le Gál” opened the night with Grace Gillan (Ian’s daughter) behind the mic and brought some cool funky, hippy vibes. Gillan, supported by Don Airey’s band and Skopje Symphonic Orchestra, performed some of the classic Deep Purple, few less expected ones and a few from his solo records. It was great to hear songs that I was very used to hearing, but arranged slightly differently and played with the orchestra. My favorite one would have to be Anya, but I also really enjoyed how they combined the epic Perfect Strangers riff with the orchestra.
