Big Country, Brudenell Social Club, Leeds - 3rd November 2018

Go and see BC every year at Brudenell, it’s a great venue the bands love it and this 35th anniversary of The Crossing was unbelievable. It was a Hitfest . The band should be proud of the gig it was unforgettable.

Starting in Autumn, Big Country appear at O2 Academy Newcastle in September before playing The Welly in mighty Hull and Stylus at Leeds, plus The Live Rooms at Chester in November and then Exeter Phoenix and Gloucester Guildhall during December 2019.

Steeltown’ was the second studio album by Big Country which was recorded at ABBA's Polar Studios in Stockholm with production from Steve Lillywhite. Released in October, 1984 Bruce Watson remembers the time very well, amid the nationwide strife back in the UK, fully in the grip of the Miners Strike: “We started work on Steeltown back in June 1984 at Abba’s studio. My Dad was a miner, so what we did was knuckle down to hard work for six weeks”.

Regarded by many as a classic, the multi-million selling 'Steeltown' went straight to the #1 slot in the album charts.

Big Country will be performing songs from the album as well as the classic hits and live favourites including:
'Fields of Fire', 'In A Big Country', 'Chance', 'Wonderland', 'Look Away' and many more..

Big Country are: Bruce Watson (guitars/vocals); Mark Brzezicki (drums, vocals); Jamie Watson (guitars/vocals); Simon Hough (vocals); Scott Whitley (bass).

Artist Bio

Big Country was originally formed in 1981 by guitar playing founder members Stuart Adamson and Bruce Watson both native of the band’s hometown Dunfermline in Scotland.

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.

At the start of the 90’s ‘Through A Big Country’, featuring all the bands classic hits was released, followed by the fifth studio album ‘No Place Like Home’ (1991) taking the band’s total record sales to well over five million copies.

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”.

By now singer Stuart Adamson had relocated to Nashville, Tennessee and so his fellow bandmates decamped to America to join him in writing and recording the album ‘Driving To Damascus’. It would be the last album they recorded together.

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 the summer of 2010, Bruce Watson finally picked up the phone and asked Mike Peters of The Alarm to do what he had previously been reluctant to do and sing with Big Country officially. There was instant chemistry with the band also being joined by Bruce Watson’s son Jamie on guitar asBig Country again sought solace in the music and the freedom to express their love and admiration for their departed friend Stuart Adamson.
