Jon Lord’s touring calendar is filling up for the rest of 2010.
Until November, Jon Lord is planning concerts in Ukraine, England, Luxembourg, Sweden, Hungary, Czech Republic, Germany and Bulgaria.
On June 16, Jon Lord will perform a very special concert with the Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra in their hometown. This is the orchestra that recorded Jon Lord’s two most recent albums, To Notice Such Things and Durham Concerto.
The concert will feature To Notice Such Things in its entirety along with Concerto For Group and Orchestra and a couple of other surprises.
Most of the other concerts also feature orchestral performances of Concerto For Group and Orchestra along with selections from Sarabande, Pictured Within and other solo works.
But one or two shows are different.
On June 23, Jon Lord will appear with a big band in Luxembourg to perform a special selection of Deep Purple classics and solo pieces – sung by Kasia Laska and Doogie White (ex-Rainbow). This show should feature plenty of Hammond organ.
In July, Jon Lord returns as special guest to Robert Wells’ Rhapsody In Rock in Sweden. Last year, this show included rocking versions of Lazy and Burn.
In September, he will team up with some old friends for a rare appearance of Daddy & The Steamers, a rock’n’blues outfit featuring Pete York, Maggie Bell, Miller Anderson and Zoot Money.
Towards the end of the year, Jon Lord will again appear with Hagen’s Philharmonisches Orchester in Essen, a concert that is part of the “European Capital of Culture 2010” programme.
Check out the complete list of confirmed Jon Lord concerts.

Hi Jon, May I wish you every success for your concert tomorrow with the Liverpool Phil. I’m very sorry not to be able to be there!
I’m trying to get in touch with you after 50 years!! I am sure you are the Johnnie Lord I sat next to at Wyggeston Boys grammer in 1957/8. It would be great to hear from you again. I love your latest CD To Notice……
Very best wishes
Although the upcoming concert in Essen is in Germany, it is the closest to my hometown (my attempts to convince concert halls in the Netherlands to send you an invitation to play have not (yet) resulted in any action). For many concerts, including some that are later on the agenda, tickets are already available, but for Essen there is no link on the “Upcoming Concerts” page. Is the concert in Essen uncertain or different? If not: how, where and when can I lay my hands on tickets for that concert? (I still have to change that XXXL-size Jon Lord-T-shirt which appeared to be a bit ambitious…)
