A comment from the late, much missed co-founder (along with Bruce Watson), recently recalled by drummer, Mark Brzezicki – these words hit home as hard and true now, as they ever did, as Big Country continue their particular journey, ever forwards.

Steeped in a stunning catalogue of proud and stirring hit songs such as ‘Fields of Fire’, ‘Chance’, ‘In A Big Country’ (which sold 2 million), ‘East Of Eden’ and their biggest UK hit ‘Look Away’, along with massive albums such ‘The Seer’, ‘Steeltown’, ‘Peace In Our Time’ and the triple Grammy –nominated, ‘The Crossing’, Big Country continue to look beyond the next horizon, as they turn the page from 2013 to 2014.

As they bid farewell after three years to Mike Peters, the band – Bruce Watson (guitars/vocals); Mark Brzezicki (drums, vocals); Jamie Watson (guitars/vocals) and former Simple Minds’ bassist/vocalist , Derek Forbes – begin a new chapter with December shows in Aberdeen, Dundee , Edinburgh, Glasgow (on New Year’s Eve) and Dumfries, on Burns Night 2014.

Big Country are immensely proud and excited to be introducing three very special friends as guests for these shows; Stevie Agnew (another one of Dunfermline’s finest – and son of Pete Agnew of Nazareth); Dave Sharp (Formerly of The Alarm) and Simon Hough ex-front man for Denny Laine (Wings), Eric Bell (Thin Lizzy) etc.

  1. I’ve just had a short but sweet chat to Bruce Watson; he’s looking forward to coming back to play in Aberdeen. Expect amazing opening sets from STEVIE AGNEW, DAVE SHARP and SIMON HOUGH. There will be the favourites as well as material from the latest album, The Journey. Bruce sounded in good form, but is about to use his extensive experience of dealing with large crowds as he heads to Edinburgh to do some Christmas shopping.
