Deep Purple Legend Jon Lord's Live Return Sidelined By Cancer Fight
Last summer, Lord announced that he was fighting cancer and would be taking a break from performing while getting treatment. Jon recently scheduled his first concert appearance since revealing his health news: a special performance of his 2008 release, the "Durham Concerto," was set for July 6 in Hagen, Germany.
Jon's camp has posted the following update: "Unfortunately, due to on-going medical treatments Jon will not be able to perform in Hagen, Germany on July 6th. He was set to perform his Durham Concerto and a selection of other pieces.
"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." Read the rest of the statement here.
