“BIG COUNTRY are still undeniably Big Country.” – Musicomh
“the crowd went apesh!t.” – Live and Die in Music
“still playing with the energy they did in the eighties.” – Nottingham Post
“an experience to savour for some time to come.”
“They played like it was the most important show of their lives. They also had an wonderful mix of old and new songs. Truly a wonderful performance and night”
“a band for the ages!”
“They have lost none of their energy and are as vibrant as ever!”
“The floors rocked to the beat of each uplifting and empowering track!”
“Look Away blows the audience away. Their liveliest performance of the night gets the whole crowd dancing and jumping, lights flashing as the band screams out 'Hide your eyes from the land where I lie cold', which is sung straight back at them” – Louder Than War
“Classic” is the only way to describe the energy infused, foot tapping vibes of 80’s juggernauts BIG COUNTRY. Having never toured Australia and New Zealand despite a cancelled tour attempt in 1986, all that is about to change in 2016. The Scottish alternative rockers bring their Greatest hits tour down under performing all their trademark hits - In a Big Country, Fields of Fire, Chance, Wonderland, Look Away plus more fan favourites. The band cannot wait to bring their exciting power that they are renowned for to a stage near you!
Having been described by Mick Jagger as “one of the best opening bands we ever had,” the band continues to wow audiences around the world night in, night out with their iconically unique sound, which escalated them to the peak of greatness in the 80’s. Where other artists may have fallen to the wayside, the band’s musical credibility still stacks up and remains as fresh as it did decades ago, largely due to their critically acclaimed live performances. With a current lineup consisting of Bruce Watson (guitar, mandolin, sitar, vocals), Jamie Watson (guitars), Simon Hough (vocals, guitar, harmonica) and Mark Brzezicki (drums) who also appeared on The Cult’s iconic “Love” album, Australian and New Zealand audiences are in for an absolute live spectacle of nostalgic fan favourites that will get the whole room jumping.
With Allmusic claiming, “it's hard not to be riveted by the interlocking bass-and-guitar sound,” that the band delivers; when BIG COUNTRY step out in front of a packed audience the excitement around the room needs to be seen to be believed. With "fans of a certain age possibly bouncing along a little more furiously than is good for them.” - Get Ready to Rock, it’s inevitable that the slick playing, pumping rhythms and soaring melody lines searing out of the bands instruments will leave you “drenched in sweat due to plenty of mad pogo action.” – Louder Than War. Displaying the same energy and determination to win the crowd over as they did back in the day, the trailblazers of lush vibes are doing what they have always done – give it their all, get the room slipping and sliding around the floor dancefloor and provide a feel-good live show that will be talked about for years to come.
It’s been a long wait for Australian and New Zealand fans to witness the classic act that is BIG COUNTRY, but now fans finally have the opportunity to participate in a Greatest Hits spectacle. Remarkable, spectacular, phenomenal and mind-blowingly astounding – you won’t want to miss out on this one!
