Jon Lord, legendery organist from Deep Purple and Whitesnake, has honoured Jakob Samuel with an invitation to join him on his own show ”An Evening with Jon Lord and New Symphony Orchestra” in Sofia, capitol of Bulgaria, the 30th of october 2010.
The repertoar will be Deep Purple-songs in symphonic arrangements, mixed with solo material that Jon Lord has written and released. Since he left the band in 2002 Jon Lord has toured the world with specially invited soloists.
”The first real concert I saw was Whitesnake, 1984. I was fourteen years old and Jon Lord entered the stage and tipped the organ, the thunder filled the hall and he played like a god, he still does!
It’s of course a great honour and pleasure to sing with your childhood hero, a musician who kept his vitality and quality over the years.
The Poodles toured a lot of the European countries but Bulgaria is a blank spot on the map so it’s very exiting” says Jakob Samuel.
