Deep Purple's Jon Lord To Play First Show Since Cancer Announcement

(hennemusic) Last summer, former Deep Purple keyboardist Jon Lord announced that he was fighting cancer and would be taking a break from performing while getting treatment. Now, Lord has scheduled his first concert appearance since revealing his health news.

A special performance of his 2008 release, "Durham Concerto," is set for July 6 in Hagen, Germany.

The concert is rounding off Jon's stretch as this year's 'composer in residence' with the Hagen Philharmonic Orchestra near Dortmund. To this end, the orchestra has been performing several of his pieces over the past few months, most recently a breath taking performance of "From Darkness To Light," which was broadcast by German radio WDR3 on May 15. more on this story
