**Big Country – “Fields of Fire,” Live in Glasgow, 2010**
When the Scottish rock group Big Country released its watershed debut album The Crossing in 1983, it served as a bold statement. The band's unique sound—centered on traditional folk instruments, choruses born for chanting, and electric guitars engineered to evoke trilling bagpipes—was unlike anything else playing on the radio. The band packed up its e-bows and parlayed its UK success across the shores with the breakout hit and early MTV staple “In a Big Country.” Decades later, Big Country’s sound continues to evoke the amp-ridden atmosphere of the highlands with the talents of original members and new lead singer Mike Peters, former frontman of fellow UK hitmakers The Alarm. Touting The Journey, their first album in 14 years, the members of Big Country inspire euphoric bellowing and enthusiastic fist-pumping in an energized set mixing new anthems and fan favorites.
DJ [Richard Blade](http://www.richardblade.com/), the New Wave–loving host of Sirius/XM's 1st Wave, emcees the event. Portions of the proceeds go to [California Family Life Center](http://www.cflckids.org/site/Default.aspx), which supports children who have suffered abuse, and Our Nicholas Foundation, which educates the community about autism-spectrum disorders.
