Following the phenomenal response to the bands 30th Anniversary tour which celebrated their third album The Seer, Big Country have now extended their celebration into 2017.
Famously, the album included an appearance by Kate Bush, joining the late Stuart Adamson on the title track and the single Look Away was the group’s biggest UK single, reaching number seven in the charts. The album itself reached number two here, with Rolling Stone reflecting; “One Great Thing, I Walk The Hill and Eiledon are stirring expressions of the desire for individual integrity and a future filled with peace”… a timely sentiment.
The band will perform the album in its entirety, as well as visiting their stunning catalogue of songs, taken from their multi-million selling and number one hit albums. Their classic hits and live favourites include Harvest Home, Fields Of Fire, In A Big Country (which sold two million copies), Chance, Wonderland, Look Away, The Teacher, East Oof Eden from such massive albums such as the triple Grammy nominated, The Crossing, Steeltown and Peace In Our Time. Big Country continue to look beyond the next horizon.
The band, Bruce Watson (guitars/vocals); Mark Brzezicki (drums, vocals); Jamie Watson (guitars/vocals) will be augmented on stage by Simon Hough and bassist, Scott Whitley.
