Scottish rock band Big Country recently took to the stage and performed some of their biggest hits in Wrexham.
On Wednesday night at Central Station Big Country rocked a near sell out crowd with plenty of old favourites, as well as plenty of songs from their new album ‘The Journey’.
The performance was the bands second appearance in the town, who performed a sold out a gig in Central Station back in 2010.
The evening began with ‘The Wobbly Hearts’ from Abergele, who performed a set of folky, roots rock. The set was greatly received by the audience and set the standard for the rest of the night.
2013 has seen Big Country on the road almost constantly and the band have recently returned from three months in the USA.
Their current UK ‘Lands End to John O’Groats’ tour has already played to packed venues all over the country
The show finished with the band paying a special tribute to the area as they spoke about how the current album was recorded at Aerial Studios just outside the town.
There was a surprise on the night as Big Country and The Alarm singer, Mike Peters, announced the ’30 Years of Declaration’ tour. This tour celebrates 30 years since The Alarm released their debut album, ‘Declaration’. The tour will be coming to Central Station in Wrexham on Friday the 21st of February, and at The Live Rooms, in Chester, on Friday the 21st of March.
Tickets for these shows can be purchased at Yales Cafe in Wrexham, or via the Central Station website. There will also be an interview with Big Country founder and guitarist Calon FM’s ‘Back to the 80′s’ radio show on Wednesday from 2-4pm.
