Black Country Communion: "Live Over Europe" 2DVD; All The Details
Black Country Communion will release its first concert DVD, "Live Over Europe", on October 24th, 2011 (Blu-ray to follow November 15th). 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 ofBlack Country Communion's albums - 2010's debut and 2011's sophomore release"2", whichThe Sunday Mercurypraised, "This is classic rock goes large, an album that lives up to its heritage. It may not be bettered this year". Bonus features include an exclusive 28-page collector's booklet and DVD with a 20-minute "behind-the-scenes" featurette and photo collection. ProducerKevin Shirleyexplains, "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." Black Country Communionrecently completed its debut tour, visiting a select number of cities in North America and Europe. On June 10th, the band played to a near-sold-out crowd in Anaheim, California, promptingThe Orange County Registerto write, "The four members ofBlack Country Communiontruly 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 Mailcalled the band's performance "rip-roaring" and "breath-taking."
