Icon34 CANCELLED - BCC Live In Wolverhampton 2013

Black Country Communion will play their first UK show since the Summer of 2011 at WOLVERHAMPTON CIVIC HALL - deep in the spiritual homeland of the band.

The gig takes place on January 5th, 2013 and it will be a very rare opportunity to see the band live.

So we went from no touring to a scheduled show already! Well hopefully they are able to do a short run at least. This is simply too good a band not do some shows.

I can't imagine that they can't all come to some kind of understanding here. Something that would work for all members.

Great news!!
I can't get the link to work and have searched on the Planet Rock site but cannot see anything yet.
I was at the last (first!) Wolverhampton show and woundn't want to miss this one for the world!
Thanks for the heads up

I am certainly glad they are playing at least one show with the new album, yet very disappointed that we seem to always get the short end of the stick in the States. JB tours he constantly; how about you tour with BCC and maybe you'd enjoy it just as much as touring yourself and opening the eyes of thousands more fans

At least Glenn shows up in the states at SOME point every now and then. He never plays in Montreal, or anywhere else in Canada for that matter

As you've said before, its US the fans that get the short end with these things. Always is

Exclamation Wolverhampton show cancelled!!

According to Planet Rock, the band has released a statement that the December 5th gig has been cancelled due to unforseen circumstances.

This isn't good. I wonder what these "circumstances" are?

Official press release can be found here:

www.noblepr.co.uk/Press_Releases/blackcountrycommunion/ukshow2013.htm

Quote:
For immediate release, London, England –

Black Country Communion, the Anglo-American rock group featuring Joe Bonamassa (guitar, vocals), Glenn Hughes (vocals, bass), Jason Bonham (drums), and Derek Sherinian (keyboards), today announced that their only UK concert at the Wolverhampton Civic on Saturday January 5th has been cancelled due to unforeseen circumstances.

Planet Rock Radio launched a 48-hour ticket pre-sale on Wednesday 19th September. Customers who purchased tickets will receive a full refund, however if you have any queries, please email customerservice@eventim.co.uk.

The one-off concert was originally intended to be Black Country Communion’s only UK appearance in 2013. The band chose Wolverhampton due to their geographical and spiritual ties to the area (Glenn Hughes was born in Cannock, Jason Bonham was born in Dudley).

In 2011, Black Country Communion’s last studio album, “2”, scored the No.1 spot in the Official UK Rock Album Chart. The band’s upcoming third album Afterglow, produced by Kevin Shirley, will be released in the UK by Mascot Records on Monday October 29th.

I just got the news from "Classic Rock" and left a comment there, trying to controll my frustration about the "politics" of BCC. I was going to visit that concert from Berlin and I'm glad now I waited a bit with the booking (especially the flight from Berlin to Birmingham and back). Now I'm gonna save a lot of money and hope there will be a clear decision about BCC in the near future.

If Joe can't commit any touring time anymore he should call it quits or the band should do so and look for another guitar player. No more "maybe" and "this must not be the end" etc. and all the fans keep hoping and getting even more disappointed in the end. If this side project has become so less important to JB, then please let him go his way and look for another great guitar player who would burn for this band! I'm sure there is one out there who would be pleased, available, enthusiastic and a good mate as well. Get him in and hit the road again under a new (but similar) name. I would try to see as many concerts as possible...

Q: Will Jimmy Page be ready, willing and - most important - ABLE to perform during the tour schedule Glenn has often mentioned? I have my doubts

Why can't I get Soren Andersen out of my mind?

Very interesting quote indeed. I really think he is saying that its not over and done with. That would be great news. This band has that certain something you just don't find but once in a generation.

It would be nice if they could all do their own things but come together every now and then and do a record and at least some shows. This would be good for all concerned including us the fans.

Time as always, will tell the story!

I'm not on facebook and my eyes just popped out when I read the quote of KS that he promises there's more to come of BCC. Had to check his fb account immediately and found another interesting comment of him:

Quote:
“A bend in the road is not the end of the road…unless you fail to make the turn.” ~Unknown

Well, I really thought the road is dividing and not bending. If the Caveman should get two angry boys back at the table again to sort some things out I definitely know why I love him...

But I'll stop any speculations before I get disappointed again and in the moment I'm just looking forward to the release of "Afterglow" and can't wait to hear it in its full length...
