Black Country Communion will release its first concert DVD, “Live Over Europe“, on October 24th, 2011 (Blu-ray to follow November 15th) on the J&R Adventures imprint.
The two-DVD live set was filmed with 14 HD cameras and 5.1 Surround Sound during the band’s debut tour in the Summer of 2011. Over three nights, playing to packed venues in the German cities of Hamburg, Munich and Berlin, the 18-song set list (17 originals and one cover) hits on both of Black Country Communion‘s albums – 2010’s debut and 2011’s sophomore release “2“.
Bonus features include an exclusive 28-page collector’s booklet and DVD with a 20-minute “behind-the-scenes” featurette and photo collection.
Producer Kevin Shirley explains:
“We saw that this live act could be an awesome force of nature to behold; one that promised legendary performances like those of our heroes of classic rock. The plan was to get them out there for the entire world to hear. Records allow a certain musical finesse, but live performance promises so much in the very transient nature of a gig; chances are taken, boundaries are crossed and the most exciting performances explode. Two studio albums built a repertoire big enough for a full concert which allowed us to unleash the monster for all the world to see and feel.”
