‘Celebrating Jon Lord,’ the memorable concert held in honour of the late Deep Purple keyboard player at the Royal Albert Hall in April, is to be released on DVD, Blu-Ray and CD.

This year’s edition of the Sunflower Jam charity concert, a series started by Jacky Paice and featuring her husband, Purple drummer Ian, was dedicated to Jon, with the participation of an all-star cast. Featuring Paice, Purple colleague Don Airey, Rick Wakeman, Paul Weller, Bruce Dickinson, Glenn Hughes, vocalist Steve Balsamo and many others, the show will be released on all three formats by earMUSIC on September 26.

“It was like no concert I have ever played,” said Paice. “To a person, everyone in the Hall was there for a common purpose: to honour a wonderful man and a great musician. The Royal Albert Hall is fairly large venue and can be intimidating, but that evening it was more like a gathering of friends at their local (if slightly oversized) pub than a regular show.

“I believe all the artists, the people in the audience and even the crew helping to make the show work, felt the difference that night.”

    It was an amazing night worthy of the great man.
    A very special moment in my life, of all the concerts I have been to it was the one that truly took my breath away.
    I hope that it can become a yearly event there is still so much of Jons music that needs to be given life by the artists who helped make it so special.
    So great to see Deep Purple and friends join together for this unforgettable concert.

    It was a very emotional night. Everyone was there for the same reason and it was very special.
    I look forward to the DVD in anticipation to be able to relive the night in all it’s variations, quirks and music.
