In other news, Jon played a special one-off concert on August 8th at the Sadler's Wells Theater in London, which was by all accounts a smashing success! This was the first time Jon had performed in the UK since his tour with Rick Wakeman in 2010. “The concert in London was with the Slovakian Chamber Orchestra with the help of my good friend composer Peter Machajdik plus a semi acoustic group I performed with a couple of years ago in Bratislava,” says Jon. In honor of the UK 2012 Olympics, Jon recorded a vocal version of the Vangelis song "Chariots of Fire" titled "Race To The End", with lyrics penned by Jon. The song can be purchased at: http://www.amazon.com/Race-to-the-End/dp/B008PNX14Q/ref=sr_shvl_album_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1345046374&sr=301-1 Also, Jon is featured on four tracks on the new CD by Dennis Haklar called 'Lizard's Tales'
