Black Country Communion – “Live Over Europe” DVD video stream…
Saturday, October 22nd, 2011 – 9:00AM PT / 12:00PM ET / 5:00PM GMT / 6:00PM CET
RSVP now to be first to hear the live songs and watch the Official preview.
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.”

GLENN HUGHES – “The Voice of Rock” – examines his own back pages on this historic in-concert recording. Over two nights, June 6th & 7th 2009, Hughes’ enthralled hometown audiences with his unique brand of rock-funk when he packed out The Robin 2 Hotel in Bilston, Wolverhampton, UK.
The first night, billed as ‘Glenn Hughes with his Full Band’ saw him performing music from his glory days with Deep Purple in 1973 on to 2009. Songs including ‘Muscle & Blood’ (from the album Hughes/Thrall), ‘You Got Soul’ (from Music for the Divine), ‘Don’t Let Me Bleed’ (from Soul Mover) and ‘Crave’ (from First Underground Nuclear Kitchen) Hughes has rarely performed in the UK before.
The second night, billed as ‘You Are the Music’: An Evening of Trapeze’ saw Hughes performing a full Trapeze set for the first time as a solo performer. Dedicated to the memory of his friend and former Trapeze guitarist Mel Galley, who passed away in July 2008, Hughes delivered emotionally charged versions of songs taken from the albums Medusa (‘Touch My Life’, ‘Black Cloud’, ‘Medusa’) and You Are the Music… We’re Just the Band (‘Way Back to the Bone’, ‘Coast to Coast’, ‘You Are the Music’).
The music is often heavy, sometimes graceful and never less than riveting. Hughes’ soulful, distinctive voice is superlative throughout, pleading, powerful and always from the heart.
Beautifully presented with superb sound quality, this DVD is a must for the Glenn Hughes aficionado and fans of Classic Rock.
