He is out of hospital now and is doing fine. Big Country would like to thank Chris Squires for filling at the last moment for Mark and doing so in such an admirable fashion.

NAZARETH & BIG COUNTRY
JOIN FORCES TO PERFORM HOMETOWN SHOW
IN AID OF
DUNFERMLINE ATHLETIC FOOTBALL CLUB
SATURDAY 30th MAY 2015
For the first time ever, Nazareth and Big Country will both perform live in support of Dunfermline Athletic at the club’s stadium on Saturday May 30th.
Pete Agnew of Nazareth and Bruce Watson of Big Country both live in Dunfermline and despite crossing paths and stages in countries all over the World, they have never played on the same bill.
As a massive fan of their local football team Dunfermline Athletic both bands thought of the idea to put on a Rock Show at the Stadium and perform free of charge to help their beloved club. Presented by DAFC and KingdomFM The LEGENDS OF ROCK show will see both bands perform sets and will also see Hurricane Road featuring Stevie Agnew who has been enlisted, along with some special guests.
Both Big Country and Nazareth are fully aware of the financial difficulties encountered by the Club over the last two years. They have also seen the tremendous efforts made by all the local fans to rescue the club and then through fan ownership sustain the club and attempt to return to the top level of Scottish football. It was only right that both NAZARETH and BIG COUNTRY who tour and play gigs all over the World, help raise money for the club to help it along the way to reach its goal.
Nazareth have completed more than 800 tours to every part of the World and have sold more than 20 million records. They play regularly to live audiences in excess of 1 million every year and they have just recorded their 28th Album.
Big Country appeared at Live Aid and have also toured extensively throughout the World. Their Album “The Crossing” received 3 Grammy nomination in the U.S. and their following Album “Steeltown” reached Number 1 in the U.K. Their signature song ‘In A Big Country” was a massive worldwide hit selling more than two million copies.
Both NAZARETH and BIG COUNTRY have earned the right to be called Legends of Rock.
Tickets for this very special show go on sale to the public from Friday 27th February at 9am – available at www.ticketmaster.co.uk.
