Black Country Communion Cancels U.K. Show

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 the band's only U.K. concert at the Wolverhampton Civic Hall 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 U.K. appearance in 2013. The band chose Wolverhampton due to the geographical and ties to the area (Glenn Hughes was born in Cannock, and Jason Bonham was born in Dudley).

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

Black Country Communion To Release "Afterglow"

Black Country Communion, the Anglo-American rock group comprising vocalist/bassist Glenn Hughes (Deep Purple, Trapeze), drummer Jason Bonham (Led Zeppelin, Foreigner), Derek Sherinian (Dream Theater, Alice Cooper, Billy Idol) and blues-rock guitarist/vocalist Joe Bonamassa, will release third album "Afterglow" via Mascot Records on Monday, October 29th. The following press release was issued about the album:

"Like its two predecessors, ‘Afterglow’ was produced by Kevin Shirley, whose catalogue of hit records for Led Zeppelin, Iron Maiden, Aerosmith and the Black Crowes has made him the hottest producer that rock music has to offer. Shirley – who had the idea of putting Hughes and Bonamassa together in a band after seeing them jam onstage back in 2009 – is the group’s unofficial ‘fifth member’.

"The additions of Jason Bonham, esteemed son of Led Zeppelin’s John, who took his father’s place when the legendary group made musical history by reuniting at London’s O2 Arena in December 2007, and the in-demand Derek Sherinian, makes BCC a force to be reckoned with.

"Both BCC’s previous offerings (2010’s eponymous debut album and 2011’s '2) have gone straight in at #1 on the official UK Rock Album Chart. Embraced by the UK’s music press, Black Country Communion were voted “Best New Band” by the listeners of Planet Rock Radio and won 'Best Breakthrough' at the prestigious Classic Rock Magazine Roll Of Honour Awards in 2011."
