BIG COUNTRY

"Steeltown" 30th Anniversary Concert

Big Country were originally formed in 1981 by guitar playing founder members Stuart Adamson andBruce Watson.

Initially driven by a shared vision of widescreen guitar melody, harmony and lyric, the classic Big Country sound was further enhanced later that summer by the arrival of drummer Mark Brzezickiand bass player Tony Butler. This is the Big Country that (with producer Steve Lillywhite), recorded the classic debut album ‘The Crossing’ in 1983.

The band broke massively worldwide with the release of the album’s classic singles ‘Fields Of Fire’, ‘Chance’ and signature song ‘In A Big Country’, which went on to become massive worldwide hits, selling over 2 million copies.

The run of success continued throughout the 1980's with the release of the anthemic single ‘Wonderland’ and the second album ‘Steeltown’ (1984), which debuted at Number 1 in the UK and contained the hit singles ‘East Of Eden, ‘Just a Shadow’ and ‘Where The Rose Is Sown’ . In 1985,Big Country appeared at Live Aid in London.

In August 1998 they were once again invited to open for the Rolling Stones on their ‘Bridges To Babylon” tour of Europe prompting Mick Jagger to say that Big Country were “one of the best opening bands we ever had”.

On December 16th 2001, Stuart Adamson took his own life in Honolulu, USA. The remaining three members had no real thoughts of performing as Big Country again. But, Tony Butler, Mark Brzezicki and Bruce Watson re-united in 2007 to celebrate the band’s Twenty-fifth anniversary.

In April 2013, Big Country released 'The Journey' and toured across the globe in support of this highly acclaimed album throughout the year with Mike Peters of the Alarm joining the group as lead vocalist.

Coming into 2014, Mike Peters is now back with the Alaram and Big Country have been joined by Simon Hough to perform vocal duties. Big Country are to celebrate the 30th Anniversary of the release of the album, 'Steeltown' with the Steeltown Tour arriving at the Clapham Grand tonight.

I used to love these boys back in the day and was well pleased to see them both at V and Latitude recently. They were excellent and as Phil below says, Mike Peters is a top bloke and cracking front man. Sound is just like the album.

Yep Stuart died but you've still the got essence of the band with Bruce Watson. Still worth the trip up from Devon. Mike Peters is a great singer.

I went to see them last year and whilst Stuart can never be replaced Mike Peters did a great job with the songs, it was great to hear the songs again live and loud and I look forward to seeing them again at the Fleece.
