In 2003 Jon Lord did a short Australian club tour with the band, which resulted in a live album and DVD.
While in Australia to perform the ‘Concerto For Group And Orchestra’ at the Sydney Opera House and premier ‘Boom Of The Tingling Strings’ at Melbourne, an accompanying club tour of Jon’s solo material had to be changed when a small injury in Sydney put his piano playing abilities out.
He found he was able to play organ, so The Hoochie Coochie Men came to his rescue and the agenda for the solo dates were changed from strings and piano to Hammond tinged blues rock.
