Following their recent string of sell-out comeback dates, Scottish rock band Big Country come to the Pyramids in Southsea tonight.

The first show Big Country played with new lead singer, Mike Peters, from fellow Celtic rockers The Alarm, took place on New Year’s Eve at the ABC in Glasgow.

Approaching their 30th anniversary, the run of confirmed dates for April will continue to mark a period of celebration that will not only embrace Big Country’s illustrious past but also honour the life and times of original lead singer, guitarist and co-founder Stuart Adamson, who died in 2001.

‘I first met Stuart on stage at a U2 concert in 1983,’ says Mike Peters. ‘Stuart was literally passed up onto the stage by the fans and I shook his hand as I handed him a guitar.’

n Tickets to tonight’s show cost £20.43 from (023) 9282 4355.
