BIG COUNTRY are performing around the globe today (Saturday).

A pandemic hasn’t stopped the legendary Dunfermline band from announcing they’ll be performing live all over the world this evening.

Their ‘virtual’ tour will stop off in Scotland and then in different time zones across the globe, including South Africa, India, Australia, Brazil and the USA.

It doesn’t matter where you are in the world, they will have a live show streaming throughout the day.

The band said: “We are delighted to bring a one-off day of streams to show you our first full band electric set in over 12 months!

“We went into a TV studio in Scotland and have put together a live show with all the greatest hits including Chance, In a Big Country, 1,000 Stars, Steeltown and a load more. We had great fun filming this set and we cannot wait to share it with you all.

“The stream will be available eight different times throughout the day so wherever you are in the world you can sit back and enjoy our set at a time that works for you.”

Fans of Big Country can pay £15 online to watch the stream, which starts at 8pm GMT.

Calum Miller, of Weekend Revolution and Dunfermline venue PJ Molloys, was approached to help organise the stream by a Livingston production company, with Substation in Rosyth also involved in putting it together.

A similar event with The Skids is also planned for the future.

Miller said: “Between the three parties, we bring a wealth of experience in the live gigging sector and it’s great to continue doing some work with bands.

“The first stream in the new project is with Dunfermline legends Big Country and we have also filmed one with The Skids that will be going out at the end of April.

“Really excited for this and it is a great opportunity to see a band in a full electric gig setting at a time when social-distancing means we can’t do it in person.”
