Glenn Hughes will join a host of fellow musicians to celebrate the life of good friend and fellow Deep Purple MK III / MK IV member, the late Jon Lord, at the The Sunflower Jam charity’s event, ‘Celebrating Jon Lord‘, to be held at The Royal Albert Hall in London, UK on Friday, April 4th, 2014.
Glenn states: “Jon and I were very close at the end of his life. I’m so glad to announce that I will perform at Jon’s tribute show in London at The Royal Albert Hall. My manager and I have been working with Jon’s manager, Tarquin and Jacky Paice and Vicky, Jon’s wife, so that I could clear my schedule to appear ~ to thank Jon and our MK 3 & 4 fans for their love… so glad to announce this to you.
I will play with Paicey and the guys for Jon at the Royal Albert Hall. I had to move some things around to make it happen. When Jon joined me onstage at the O2 / Childline show in ’09 / the hairs on my arms were raised… the greatest rock Hammond player of the 20th/21st century!”
Other performers on the bill for the evening of celebration include Paul Weller, Bruce Dickinson, Rick Wakeman, Alfie Boe, Joe Brown, The Orion Orchestra conducted by Paul Mann and many, many more.

Kings of Chaos are an all-star touring project that features Glenn Hughes (Black Country Communion, Deep Purple), Corey Taylor (Slipknot/Stone Sour) and Steve Stevens along with Velvet Revolver/ex-Guns N’ Roses members Slash, Matt Sorum and Duff McKagan. Their only North American show of 2013 will be November 18th in Los Angeles at Avalon Hollywood for a benefit gig called ‘Tokyo Celebrates the Dolphin’.
In addition to the band members above, the show will include special guests including Juliette Lewis, Les Stroud (from TV’s ‘Survivorman‘) and actor Gary Dourdan. Kings of Chaos will play a two hour set of hits from its various members. Tickets for the show are available here.
Proceeds from ‘Tokyo Celebrates The Dolphin‘ will go to Ric O’Barry’s Dolphin Project, an international organization dedicated to saving dolphins from slaughter and exploitation. “This is a rehearsal for the BIG one,” says O’Barry. “We plan on taking ‘Tokyo Celebrates The Dolphin‘ to Japan. We’ll add a few Japanese friends to our lineup and rock the socks off Tokyo.”
“There isn’t a better way to bring Westerners and Japanese people together than rock and roll and the world should also know about the wonderful relationship between Japanese people and dolphins in the Tokyo Islands,” O’Barry continues. “Dolphins are respected and protected in this part of Japan. It’s the opposite of Taiji, but very few people know about it. ‘Tokyo Celebrates The Dolphin‘ will hopefully change this by bringing positive, international media attention to what is right about Japan.”
“I’m thrilled to bring a bunch of superstars together for a fun night with fans,” adds Sorum. “The main thing is to keep creating awareness for the Dolphin Project and everyone involved.”
The band toured South and Central America last year under the moniker Rock ‘N’ Roll All Stars. As Kings of Chaos they played in Australia earlier this year, and will be touring South America in November.
Glenn Hughes will perform a song with a string quartet at the Wedding of former Guns N’ Roses and current Velvet Revolver & Kings Of Chaos drummer, Matt Sorum later this month.
Sorum will marry his longtime girlfriend Adriane “Ace” Harper on Saturday, October 12th, 2013 in Palm Springs, California.
