Celebrating Jon Lord on April 4 2014 - Glenn Hughes joins the all star line-up

We always like to be able to give good news!  The wonderful team at The Sunflower Jam  have  announced that Glenn Hughes will be performing at ‘Celebrating Jon Lord ’ at London's Royal Albert Hall on April 4th 2014.

                                                                Glenn Hughes

. It’s a pretty exciting announcement for Deep Purple fans who will be certainly rubbing hands with glee   - we know we at Classic Rock Radio  certainly are!

Deep Purple,  Iron Maiden frontman Bruce Dickinson, Rick Wakeman , Paul Weller and a host of other fine  musicians will appear in what is guaranteed to be a truly unique night of music, a night to come together to honour  and celebrate the life and work of the late, great Jon Lord.

The concert will give fans a chance to relive Jon Lord's remarkable and extensive musical career, remembering music from  Deep Purple, his later classical compositions and everything in between.

Tenor Alfie Boe was due to appear but has unfortunately had to cancel due to 'due to conflicting commitments' He tweeted 'Sad to announce I cannot take part in this years Sunflower Jam due to work commitments in the US. I hope my fans will keep supporting'

(This is  sad news because Alfie was absolutely superb at the Sunflower Jam's SuperJam in 2012 when he joined Bruce Dickinson, Brian May, Alice Cooper, Sandi Thom amongst others for what proved to be one of the best shows (and totally unforgettable) that I  have ever attended - see my review  here      )
