After two successful concerts in Romania in 1993 and 2009, the British band Nazareth will be back in Bucharest this Friday at the Hard Rock Café, the organizers inform. The concert is part of the tour to promote the band’s latest album, “Big Dogz”, launched this spring, 40 years after their first record (Nazareth, 1971) came out. “Big Dogz” includes 11 new songs and was given a warm welcome in Europe, Asia and South America. Nazareth was “born” in December 1968 on Dunfermline, Scotland, out of the ashes of a semi-professional local band, The Shadettes, bringing together vocalist Dan McCafferty, guitarist Manny Charlton (ex-Mark V and The Red Hawks), bassist Pete Agnew and drummer Darrell Sweet.
Their signature ballad, “Love Hurts”, which went on to become a worldwide hit, winning the Platinum Record and the top position in European and US charts, remains the public’s favourite even 36 years on. Tickets, priced RON 90 to 400, are available online on www.biletoo.ro and www.blt.ro, in the “Adevarul” bookshop network, “Flanco” shops, the Unirea Shopping Center, the Palace Hall, the “Muzica” and “Victoria” shop, the National Children’s Palace and the Hard Rock Café.
