Jon Lord in Jim Capaldi tribute show

Jon Lord will take part in an all-star celebration of the late Jim Capaldi, solo musician and member of Traffic. The show will take place Jan. 21, close to the second anniversary of his death, at London`s Roundhouse. Tickets go on sale Dec. 18.

The Dear Mr. Fantasy concert, named for one of Traffic`s best-known albums, will celebrate the life and work of Capaldi, who died of cancer Jan. 28, 2005, at the age of 60. The event will raise funds for the Jubilee Action Street Children Appeal, a charity in which Capaldi and his wife Anina were active.

The show will be presented by BBC Radio 2`s Bob Harris. Already confirmed to appear are Steve Winwood, Capaldi`s longtime collaborator both in and out of Traffic; Pete Townshend, Paul Weller, Bill Wyman and other such performers as Joe Walsh, Gary Moore, Simon Kirke, Dennis Locorriere, the Storys, Andy Newmark, Ray Cooper and keyboardist Paul ‘Wix’ Wickens.
