BIG COUNTRY
 
'The Crossing'
 
35th Anniversary Tour
 
The Crossing is the first studio album released by Scottish band Big Country, in 1983. The band broke massively worldwide with the release of the album’s classic singles Fields Of FireChance and 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 album reached #3 in the UK; overseas, it hit #4 in Canada on the RPM national Top Albums Chart and #18 in the US on the Billboard 200 in 1983. It went on to be certified platinum in the UK and Canada. 
 
Formed in 1981 by guitar playing founder members, Stuart Adamson and Bruce Watson, both native of the band’s hometown Dunfermline in Scotland. Initially driven by a shared vision of widescreen guitar melody, harmony and lyric, the classic Big Country sound was further enhanced later that summer by the arrival of drummer Mark Brzezicki and bass player Tony Butler.
 
Big Country are Bruce Watson (guitars/vocals); Mark Brzezicki (drums, vocals); Jamie Watson (guitars/vocals), Simon Hough(vocals/guitar) and Scott Whitley (bass).
