Remembering Jon

December 4, 2018

There was a fascinating concert in Athens, Greece the other week (Nov 16) done as a tribute to Jon Lord’s music. With a big orchestra backing, they performed the three movements of “Concerto…”, “Sarabande” and an encore of “Hush”, “Lazy” and “Child In Time”.  In some ways this points the way to how Deep Purple and Jon might be part of the world’s musical heritage in decades to come.  You can read a review of it on the Greek rock site rockpages (in English!). My thanks to Sakis Nikas for the details.  And what a fab ticket design too!

Jon Lord Concert online

September 17, 2013

A wonderful project to present a Jon Lord show from Norway in 2010 has gone live. It’s something of a first for any of the Deep Purple musicians, a dedicated web experience is all I can describe it as, with the concert at the heart. You can either steam straight over and immerse yourself (although I would set aside a couple of hours to get the most out of it) at http://trondheimexperiment.com or read our comments and review and then steam over.
