Black Country Communion set to get charged-up at High Voltage and extra UK dates for 2011

Rock supergroups come and go, yet here's one that may stand the test of time. Black Country Communion has already set the rock world alight with a pretty decent debut album, issued last year. Their first UK dates in December were enthusiastically received (by those who fought through the ice and snow), one of which was actually in the 'Black Country' itself (Wolves). Glenn Hughes and the gang have now announced a brace of activity during the summer, including a slot at London's premier metal and rock festival.

The High Voltage Festival 2011, already starring Dream Theater, Jethro Tull, Judas Priest and Michael Schenker Group added Black Country Communion to the line-up recently and they are due to perform on the Sunday (24th July) on the main stage. This is set to be the band's only UK festival appearance - tickets for the weekend are still available for £99 (or £56.50 per day).

In addition, the supergroup will also be playing a few regional nights starting with Leeds on 26th July, followed by Newcastle (27th), Glasgow (29th) and finally (for the moment at least) Manchester (30th). Tickets for these four will go on sale this Friday at 9am.
