  • special guest support: MIKE PETERS from THE ALARM Steeltown was the second studio album by Big Country which was recorded at ABBAs Polar Studios in Stockholm with production from Steve Lillywhite. Released in October, 1984 Bruce Watson remembers the time very well, amid the nationwide strife back in the UK, fully in the grip of the Miners Strike: We started work on Steeltown back in June 1984 at Abbas studio. My Dad was a miner, so what we did was knuckle down to hard work for six weeks. Regarded by many as a classic, the multi-million selling Steeltown went straight to the #1 slot in the UK album charts. Big Country will be performing songs from the album as well as the classic hits and live favourites including:Fields of Fire, In A Big Country, Chance, Wonderland, Look Away and many more. Mike Peters is known primarily as frontman of the internationally acclaimed Welsh band The Alarm. Achieving over 15 Top 40 UK singles and over 5 million album sales worldwide along the way, Mike Peters musical journey has seen him sing with some of historys greatest performers such as Bob Dylan, Neil Young, & Bono.
