Keyboardist Don Airey Launches His Pre-Sale Campaign For “K2 – Tales of Triumph and Tragedy” Limited Edition Box Set

Iconic keyboardist Don Airey, known for his work with acclaimed rock band Deep Purple has launched a pre-sale campaign on PledgeMusic for a very special limited edition Deluxe Box Set of his progressive rock solo album “K2 – Tales of Triumph & Tragedy,” to be released on Gonzo Multimedia in June 2017.

“K2” was recorded in 1988 at Sarm East Studios, London, and originally released worldwide on MCA Records. The album was inspired by a news article written by climber Jim Curran about his stressful experiences on the 1986 expedition to K2 in the Himalayas that claimed the life of 12 climbers. The music was finalized after Don met Jim at his house in Sheffield where he talked of his friends Al Rouse and Julie Tullis, who both died in a snowstorm at the peak.

The album also features guest appearances by celebrated rock musicians Gary Moore, Cozy Powell, Colin Bluntstone, Chris Thompson and other artists.

There will only be 100 of this deluxe Box Set manufactured and each will contain a signed and numbered certificate. There will also be additional signed items and exclusive merchandise as part of this pre-order campaign.

You are going to get something that will please everyone and hopefully you’ll like the music too!,” says Don Airey.
