Black Country Communion cancel one-off show
Cancelled: Black Country Communion
Black Country Communion have cancelled the one-off show which could have been their last-ever appearance.
The band’s future is in doubt after frontman Glenn Hughes revealed his frustrations with not being able to tour because of guitarist Joe Bonamassa’s hectic solo schedule.
Last week they announced they’d play a single show in Wolverhampton, England, on January 5 next year.
Now they’ve said it’s cancelled “due to unforeseen circumstances.”
Hughes, Bonamassa, Jason Bonham, Derek Sherinian and producer Kevin Shirley will release third album Afterglow on October 29. The record heavily features Hughes’ songwriting since Bonamassa was again unavailable.
BCC had said about the cancelled show: “Given their geographical and spiritual ties to the area – both Hughes and Bonham were born and raised in the Black Country – when discussions arose about where in the world the band would perform this one-off show, there was only ever going to be one outcome. The band is very excited to come home for this performance.”
Hughes will take part in 50 Years of Loud, the tribute show to Marshall amps creator Jim Marshall, at Wembley Arena on Saturday. The event also stars Joe Satriani, Zakk Wylde, Corey Taylor and compere Nicko McBrain.
