JON LORD, GLENN HUGHES Perform Together At 'ChildLine Rocks'; Video Available

Former DEEP PURPLE members Jon Lord and Glenn Hughes are among the musicians who performed at the ChildLine Rocks concert this past Monday (June 1) at the IndigO2 in London, England.

Francesco at Deep Purple Italia, who attended the show, tells BLABBERMOUTH.NET: "Jon Lord hit the stage first, performing a version of his 'Pictured Within' song with guest vocalist Steve Balsamo. He then played a version of PURPLE's 'Child In Time' with Balsamo singing and THUNDER playing. Glenn Hughes came on stage shortly after and played 'You Keep On Moving' (from the DEEP PURPLE 1976 album 'Come Taste The Band') with Jon Lord (and THUNDER). After this song, Lord left and Hughes performed another PURPLE classic ('Mistreated') and his solo hit 'Soul Mover'. The duo was back together on stage for the 'grand finale' — a version of 'Smoke On The Water' played by all the bands and artists that attended the event."
