Debut album tour for Big Country

Big Country, who formed in November 1981, will kick-off their 30th anniversary celebrations by performing their 1983 debut album The Crossing live in its entirety during a thirteen-date tour of the U.K. in February 2012.

With The Crossing an international best seller, it sold over 2 million copies in the UK, spawning 2 Top Ten hits and spending 84 consecutive weeks on the Music Week album chart, Big Country’s tour will coincide with Universal Music’s deluxe re-issue of the album on January 30th 2012, which is expected to include a wealth of previously unreleased recordings and footage of the band.

The Crossing tour will also precede the release of a new studio album, scheduled for release in autumn 2012.
