After the completely sold-out shows in recent years, the Scottish legends will return to Switzerland in 2021!
They belong to the first generation of hard & heavy bands and after their foundation in 1968, together with bands like Led Zeppelin, Deep Purple, Uriah Heep and Black Sabbath, they had a decisive influence on the style of hard rock. With over 60 million records sold, they are (besides Simple Minds) the most successful rock band of all time in Scotland. In other words: Nazareth is a deserved headliner at UrRock 2021! When the rock dinosaurs make the UrRock stage tremble on Sunday, 14.11.2021 with classics like "This Flight Tonight", "Expect No Mercy", "Hair Of The Dog", "Dream On" or "Love Hurts", we will not only be transported back to the good old days of the wild 70s, but will also experience a band at first hand, which after more than 50 years is still bursting with joy of playing and is well prepared for the future.
This confidence is also due to the singer: Carl Sentance. With his gifted rock voice, the Welsh singer perfectly fills the big gap left by the original member and band co-founder Dan McCafferty, who had to take his hat off in 2013 for health reasons. Sentance draws on his many years of experience as front man of bands like Krokus or Tokyo Blade, as well as his collaboration with greats like Geezer Butler (Black Sabbath), Paul Chapman (UFO), Vinny Appice (Dio, Sabbath) or Don Airey (Deep Purple).
From 1971 until today Nazareth have recorded 24 studio albums. They have received platinum and gold awards all over the world. Their latest work "Tattooed on My Brain" - a record that every rock fan should have on their music shelf. Lots of rock, sometimes bluesy, sometimes groovy, sometimes Southern style, then psychedelic, but mostly British, brings back memories of the years when British rock music was at the top.
On the new record we hear a lot of vibes of 60s/70s rock music, yet the work sounds modern and fresh and not dusty. We are proud that Nazareth is representing Sunday's headliner slot and look forward to a great show!
