According to a posting at JonLord.org, former DEEP PURPLE keyboardist Jon Lord will be back in Trondheim, Norway on Sunday, May 23. He will perform an intimate church concert at Vår Frue Kirke with a small string section consisting of members of the Trondheim Soloists.
The evening's program is still not finalized, but expect to hear Jon Lord on piano playing some of his solo pieces, possibly even from his new album, "To Notice Such Things".
Jon Lord has a long history with Trondheim and the nearby Hell Blues Festival. In 2003, he was made Ambassador of Hell, and at his most recent visit to Trondheim he performed his (yet-to-be-recorded) string and choir piece "From Darkness to Light" at Trondheim's imposing Nidaros Dome in 2007.
His return visit to Trondheim coincides with Trondheim Rock 2010, which will feature GLENN HUGHES, GARY MOORE and others.
