Big Country will be in Norwich this week as the Scottish rockers mark the 40th anniversary of their debut album.
The Crossing, which included In A Big Country, was released in 1983 to critical acclaim. Fields Of Fire and Chance also featured on that breakthrough album.
Since then, the Fife band have put out a further eight studio albums – nearly all of them coming before the death of founder Stuart Adamson in 2001.
Having got back together in 2007, the current five-man Big Country line-up includes founder member Bruce Watson on guitar and the virtually ever-present Mark Brzezicki on drums.
They’ll be at Epic Studios on Friday, April 14, with support coming from Spear Of Destiny.
Fronted by Kirk Brandon, Spear Of Destiny last played Norwich in November, when they headlined The Waterfront.
