Big Country announce Best Of tour

Big Country have announced a widespread UK tour that starts next month and wraps up in December.

The band, who were fronted by Stuart Adamson until his death in 2001, have announced the new dates on the back of the success of their Steeltown 30th anniversary tour.

Big Country’s current lineup features Bruce Watson on vocals and guitar, Mark Brzezicki on drums, Jamie Watson on guitars and vocals and former Simple Minds member Derek Forbes on bass. They’re joined by singer Simon Hough.

Last year the band released remastered version of their albums The Seer, No Place Like Home and Peace In Our Time.
