UG Newsbites: Lord's Swan Song, LCD Soundsystem and Kiss
Jon Lord's final studio work, a new version of his Concerto For Group and Orchestra, will be released on September 25. It was recorded in Abbey Road Studios and features the Royal Liverpool Philharmonic orchestra plus Bruce Dickinson of Iron Maiden, Joe Bonamassa and Deep Purple guitarist Steve Morse. Lord, who died last month at 71, said of the album: "Over the years since leaving Deep Purple I've played it over 30 times, and in 2000 I did it well over 30 times with Purple on tour. I've been honing the piece. It's a marvellous and exciting prospect to have the definitive recording of the definitive score." [ClassicRockMagazine] LCD Soundsystem's "Shut Up And Play The Hits" is coming to home video by October 9, according to the defunct band's label, DFA Records. The film, documenting the indie act's Madison Square Garden retirement concert, will come in a three-disc package including footage of the entire April 2011 performance. The lengthy set included fan favorites such as "Daft Punk Is Playing At My House" and "All My Friends," as well as the Nike collaboration "45:33." [Billboard] Kiss are on the road this summer with Motley Crue as the two classic rock acts perform across North America. Kiss were set to enjoy a day off this Monday, August 13 between shows in southern California, but now they've been confirmed to appear on the nationally syndicated radio show "Rockline" with host Bob Coburn. The 90-minute program airs on Monday at 8:30 p.m. PT / 11:30 p.m. ET. [Hennemusic]
