Deep Purple's Ian Gillan has shared video footage of a live rendition of 'Smoke on the Water' in Warsaw while accompanied by a full orchestra.

The special orchestral performance is lifted from Gillian’s three-part audio-visual live album ‘Contractual Obligation’, which came out via earMUSIC last month.

Released on Blu-ray, 2CD & digital and 3LP, each respective format features a full performance three Eastern European cities featuring a different local orchestra each night.

The formats are as follows:

Contractual Obligation #1: Live In Moscow (On Blu-ray)
Contractual Obligation #2: Live In Warsaw (On 2CD & digital)
Contractual Obligation #3: Live In St. Petersburg (On 3LP).

Alongside being flanked by an orchestra, Ian Gillan was accompanied by the Don Airey Band, which features the mercurial guitar talents of Simon McBride.

The setlists each night featured Deep Purple classics (and rarities (including ‘Razzle Dazzle’ and ‘Anya’) together with Ian Gillan solo tracks.
