Deep Purple Legend Jon Lord's Live Return Sidelined By Cancer Fight

(hennemusic) Former Deep Purple keyboardist Jon Lord has had to postpone his return to the live stage.

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.
