Perfect strangers pictured in Luxembourg

June 24, 2010


On a warm mid-summer evening, Jon Lord headlined Luxembourg’s national day celebrations with local big band/orchestra OPUS 78 and Kasia Laska and Doogie White on vocals.



Set in Luxembourg City’s historic Square Guillaume, the evening’s first half comprised a handful of rock classics arranged for strings, horns, band and sung by Kasia Laska and Doogie White.

Jon Lord joined for the second half and a storming selection of his solo material and Deep Purple songs – only interrupted by the nearby cathedral’s chiming bells.

The Maestro charmed and rocked the crowd with enthusiasm, and Doogie White and Kasia Laska mesmerized everyone with their vocal supremacy. Perfect Strangers and Pictured Within provided a double-up highlight of the evening.

At the end, Child in Time, held the square breathless for a thunderous climax to a captivating show.

Live and Let Die (Kasia Laska)
Pinball Wizard (Doogie White)
All By Myself (Kasia)

  1. Great Concert yesterday in Luxembourg where I had the pleasure to be….

    Well, the first song played by Opus78 has nothing to do with James Bond, but was the “Mission Impossible” soundtrack 🙂

    Kasia, you’re the best
    Doogie, you too

A great choice of songs and good to hear Jon’s Organ on Perfect Strangers. Both Kasia and Dougie contibuted superb vocals. Looking forward to the Blues festival in Lahnstein.
