Photos from the concert of Deep Purple, Montreux, 2016-07-16. A great example of vitality and longevity: it's truly amazing Deep Purple are still on stage in full force 45 years later at the same place where Smoke on Water was written and recorded (1971 in Montreux).
Smoke On The Water lyrics - Deep Purple:
We all came out to Montreux
On the Lake Geneva shoreline
To make records with a mobile
We didn't have much time
Frank Zappa and the Mothers
Were at the best place around
But some stupid with a flare gun
Burned the place to the ground
Smoke on the water, a fire in the sky
Smoke on the water
Drummer Ian Paice has recovered from the TIA he had in June 2016.
