Big Country – 13th December, 1987

A gig which was part of the band’s Under Wraps tour when they were road testing some material from the upcoming Peace in Our Time album playing in smaller venues than they would normally do made for a fantastic concert. The set-list can be found here – https://guestpectacular.com/artists/big-country/events/1987-12-13/united-kingdom/newcastle/mayfair-ballroom.

Support band was And Lover Speaks who wrote the original version of the Annie Lennox hit No More I Love Yous.

The Peace in Our Time album came out in September 1988 with the best known tracks being King Of Emotion and Broken Heart(Thirteen Valleys). I would see the band at Newcastle and Edinburgh on the subsequent tour in January 1989.
