  1. Great initiative! If only I could be there! I hope some recording will come available afterwards!

  2. It’s wonderfull there’s so many music events that remember DP incredible neverending music and performing, tribute bands or others, while DP are still strongly playing everywhere in the world and making records… And expecially, in this (and many other!) case, in my Country and an evening in honor of the great Manster , unforgettable Jon Lord.

  3. Itis jhust great! I am so glad to see that the work of Jon Lord is still performed. I was a little afraid that with the master gone, the work wouldjhust be listened on DVD and CD……….now, i hope, and i am sure that the furture generations can hear te work of Jon in live performance like it is for beethoven, Bach and Mozart……
