Durham Concerto in Hagen

Jon Lord official website has announced his first public performance this year — a special presentation of Durham Concerto in Hagen, Germany on July 6. Yes, the usual (under the circumstances) disclaimers apply. This will be almost exactly a year since the date of his last public performance. Tickets are on sale.

Update (Jun 28): this show has been cancelled:

Unfortunately, due to on-going medical treatments Jon will not be able to perform in Hagen, Germany on July 6th. […]

Jon wishes to assure everyone that this is not a matter for concern, but it is a continuation of his regular treatment that has just taken longer than anticipated. He and the Hagen Philharmonic Orchestra hope to be able to reschedule the concert for later in the year.

    This fantastic news and this monumental event needs to be recorded and taped for a DVD release. As a matter of fact, pretty much everything all of our Purple heroes do at this point in their lives should be well documented and archived. This situation with Mr. Lord should be an eye opener regarding the mortality aspect of ALL.

    Cheers

    I guess none of the guys above read the update. The show is postponed. It might be re-scheduled later in the year. Fingers crossed.
