Big Country
‘Classic’ is the only way to describe the energy-infused, foot-tapping vibes of ’80s juggernauts, Big Country. Having never toured Australia (despite a cancelled tour attempt in 1986) all that is about to change in 2016 when the undeniable hip-shakers of Scottish alternative rock bring their greatest hits tour to this side of the world for the very first time. Performing all their trademark hits, In a Big Country, Chance, Wonderland, Look Away along with more fan favourites set to ignite your aural senses and send your hands fist pumping into a frenzy. Big Country is set to bring the exciting power they are renowned for every night 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 iconic, unique sound which escalated them to the peak of greatness in the ’80s. Where other artists may have fallen to the wayside, the Big Country’s musical credibility still stacks up and remains as fresh as it did decades ago, largely due to their critically acclaimed live performances. With the current lineup consisting of Bruce Watson (guitar, mandolin, sitar, vocals), Jamie Watson (guitars), Simon Houghthe (vocals, guitar, harmonica) and Mark Brzezicki (drums)—who also appeared on The Cult’s iconic Love album—you are in for an absolute live spectacle of nostalgia that will get the whole room jumping.

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—giving it their all, getting the room slipping and sliding around the dancefloor and providing a feel-good live show that will be talked about for years to come.

It’s been a long wait for Australian 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!
