Scottish rock band Nazareth will hold a concert in Romania in April next year, as part of a tour to promote the band’s latest release, ‘The Neuz,’ which was launched in February this year.
The concert will be held on April 26, at Bucharest’s Arenele Romane, according to the organizers of the event, Kompas Events.
‘The Neuz’ tour, marking the 40th anniversary of the band, started in Sweden this year and has already included concerts in 18 countries.
Nazareth was formed in 1968 in Dunfermline, Scotland, by vocalist Dan McCafferty, guitarist Manny Charlton, bassist Pete Agnew, and drummer Darrell Sweet. The band moved to London, England in 1970, and released their self-titled debut album in 1971.
The second release, ‘Exercises’ gathered more attention and so did the band’s third album, ‘Razamanaz,’ in early 1973. This was followed by ‘Loud ‘N’ Proud’ in late 1973, ‘Rampant,’ in 1974, ‘Hair of the Dog,’ in 1975, ‘No Mean City’ and ‘Malice in Wonderland’ in 1979.
In 1999, while touring the U.S., original drummer Darrell Sweet died at age 51 of a heart attack. The current members of the band are Dan McCafferty (vocals), Jimmy Murrison (guitar), Pete Agnew (bass) and Lee Agnew (voice).
