The rock quartet supergroup featuring bassist/vocalist Glenn Hughes (Deep Purple, Trapeze, Black Sabbath), blues rock guitarist/vocalist Joe Bonamassa, drummer Jason Bonham (Led Zeppelin), and keyboardist Derek Sherinian (Billy Idol) will release their first concert DVD, a double disc live set called Live Over Europe, the following Tuesday, October 24 (Blu-ray to follow November 15, 2011) on J&R Adventures.
The DVD was taped using 14 HD cameras and 5.1 surround sound over three nights, playing to packed venues in the German cities of Hamburg, Munich and Berlin during their 2011 summer tour. The 18-song set list (17 originals and 1 cover) hits on both of BCC's chart-topping albums – 2010's debut and 2011's sophomore release 2, which The Sunday Mercury praised, "This is classic rock goes large, an album that lives up to its heritage. It may not be bettered this year."
Live Over Europe highlights include the songs "Black Country," "One Last Soul," "Save Me," "Man In The Middle," "Cold," and "Song of Yesterday." DVD bonus features include an exclusive 28-page collector's booklet and DVD with a 20-minute "behind the scenes" featurette and photo collection.
BCC recently completed their debut tour, visiting a select number of cities in North America and Europe. On June 10, the band played in Anaheim, CA where The Orange County Register exclaimed, "The four members of BCC truly recast the heavy rock of the '60s and '70s and yank it into the 21st century as well as anyone in recent memory." At the Wolverhampton Civic Hall, The Birmingham Mail called their performance "rip-roaring" and "breath-taking." This summer, BCC played the High Voltage Festival in London with other acts such as Judas Priest, Slash, Jethro Tull and Dream Theater. The Express & Star said, "Black Country Communion showed during their hour-long set that they have the chops and the sounds to make a huge impact."
VH1 CLASSIC's That Metal Show recently crowned Black Country Communion the "Best New Band of the Last Ten Years."
