Big Country are an Internationally renowned Scottish Rock Band originally formed in 1981 by guitar playing founder members Stuart Adamson and Bruce Watson.
The band broke massively worldwide with the release of the album’s classic singles ‘Fields Of Fire’, ‘Chance’ and their signature song ‘In A Big Country’, which went on to become massive worldwide hits, selling over 2 million copies and driving ‘The Crossing’ to 3 prestigious Grammy nominations in the USA.
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 No1 in the UK. The third album 'The Seer' included the No1 hit 'Look Away'. The band continued their success through the 90’s taking the total record sales to well over five million copies.
In the summer of 2010, to celebrate 30 years of Big Country, the band reunited and two years of intense and emotional shows followed with the ‘new’ Big Country fuelled by a renewed energy and once again revelling in the dreams and visions that had brought them together in the first place, finding instant and respectful acceptance by fans and critics alike.
Since then, the band have performed at many of the UK and Europe’s most famous festivals, including Isle Of Wight (Twice), V Festival, T In The Park, creating a new generation of fans and renewing the passion for diehards. The Summer of 2014 will bring Big Country to the Northumberland Countryside where they will headline the 4th Corbridge Festival.
