Jon Lord’s Concerto for Group and Orchestra at La Filature, Mulhouse, France (with video clips).

The 1.200 capacity ‘Grande Salle’ at La Filature was sold out, so the show started for a packed house. As always, it was first the orchestra – this time it was L’Orchestre Symphonique de Mulhouse – that entered the stage, to be followed by ‘the band’. On the drums Steve White, on bass Patrice Guers, and Patrick Rondat on guitar. Both (orchestra and band, that is) were greeted with a friendly applause which rose considerably in volume and enthusiasm as soon as Jon Lord joined the protagonists on stage.
