Jon unavailable for Hagen concert

June 28, 2012

Unfortunately, due to on-going medical treatments Jon will not be able to perform in Hagen, Germany on July 6th. He was set to perform his Durham Concerto and a selection of other pieces.

Jon wishes to assure everyone that this is not a matter for concern, but it is a continuation of his regular treatment that has just taken longer than anticipated. He and the Hagen Philharmonic Orchestra hope to be able to reschedule the concert for later in the year.

He apologises to everyone for any inconveniences this may have caused, particularly the wonderful people of Hagen, their terrific orchestra and all those who may have bought tickets, and he looks forward to seeing them all soon.

For ticket refunds, please contact Hagen’s Theaterkasse or your Eventim ticket agent.

  40. Dejen de decir que “Jon Lord PERDIO contra el cancer. Jon Lord sufrio una enfermedad tremenda, y lucho contra algo casi imposible.
    Todos nos vamos de una manera u otra, sin perder nada, solo nos vamos por asi es la vida. Jon Lord fue un ganador en TODO. Un Maestro inolvidable,irrepetible.

  41. Not that it matters because of what a joke it has to be, but Deep Purple never inducted into the R&R Hall of Fame, at least not during Jon’s life. What a sad, rude, ugly insult. I shall never forgive the idiot bastard morons that decide whom to allow into that shallow rat hole. Really, not Deep Purple??? Ugh. God speed Jon, you blazed the hard rock keyboard trail eternal.

  42. may jon rest in heaven

  43. I miss Jon,but,he is in a far better place.I envision him up in heaven,playing a huge grand organ,and God is grooving to the music! (I know it sounds silly,but that’s what’s in my head. I hope to be there someday,to see the this organ maestro!
