Acts confirmed for Zermatt Unplugged
Taking place from April 9th until April 12th 2008, Zermatt Unplugged looks set to wow those skiing in Zermatt after a host of big name acts were confirmed for the festival.
Artists performing on Wednesday April 9th include founding member of legendary rock band Deep Purple Jon Lord, who will be taking to the stage with his Gemini Band.
"It was the longest hardest decision of my life, to leave the band that I founded and loved for nearly 35 years," Lord said on his 2002 departure from Deep Purple.
John Lord and Gemini Band will perform a mixture of jazz, blues and R&B with a "stylistic variation".
Those enjoying Zermatt skiing holidays on the Thursday will be treated to a feast of glamorous stars.
Canadian rocker and seven-time Grammy winner Alanis Morissette will be providing her own vibrant angst-filled charismatic vocals and will help make Zermatt Unplugged "an unforgettable experience".
Other stars performing include Glen of Guinness, Lingworm, Gotthard and Gabrielle.
