Bruce Dickinson + Glenn Hughes Perform Deep Purple’s ‘Burn’ at Jon Lord Tribute Show
This performance is absolutely breathtaking. Two of hard rock / heavy metal's loudest sirens have teamed up for the new concert film and CD, 'Celebrating Jon Lord.' Iron Maiden singer Bruce Dickinson and former Deep Purple bassist / vocalist Glenn Hughes tag-teamed the classic track 'Burn' with the Orion Orchestra backing them up live at the Royal Albert Hall.
Deep Purple, who we recently endorsed for a long-deserved induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, have paid tribute to late Jon Lord, who performed the organ, keyboards, backing vocals and composed string arrangements for Deep Purple for nearly three decades. Lord passed away in 2012 from a pulmonary embolism after being diagnosed with pancreatic cancer in 2011.
The phenomenal musician deserves nothing less than an epic sendoff, which was filmed at the Royal Albert Hall. The packed house were treated to a marathon of three sets, the second of which features Bruce Dickinson and Glenn Hughes both wailing along to 'Burn.' It's a must-see performance, so check it out in the video above.
'Celebrating Jon Lord' is set for a Sept. 26 release. To pre-order the tribute in a number of different bundles, click here. Check below for the full 'Celebrating Jon Lord' setlist.
