On June 23, Jon Lord will appear at a free big band concert in Luxembourg.
Performing with local group Big Band OPUS78, the concert will include a selection of Deep Purple and solo tracks featuring Doogie White and Kasia Laska on vocals.
The Big Band OPUS78 was established in 1978 and is a traditional big band with trumpets, trombones, saxophones and a rhythm section. Kasia Laska sang with the band last summer – see photo.
During the second half of the evening, Jon Lord will appear with the band to perform these pieces (though not necessarily in this order):
Highway Star, Perfect Strangers, Black Night, Pictures of Home, Child in Time, Soldier of Fortune, Pictured Within, Evening Song, The Telemann Experiment and Bouree.

One thought on “Jon Lord + Big Band in Luxembourg”
This will be one of the shows of the year . I remember DP having been at the same place during the Concerto tour in front of some 20.000 people ( to note that extracts of that show with comments can be found in the ” around the world live ” dvd ). This show will be a must for all Luxembourg and surrounding DP and Jon Lord fans.DO NOT MISS and let’s pray that the weather god is in a good mood on that day
