Nazareth in Poland
   
Scottish rock legends Nazareth are coming back to Poland to give a one-night-only gig at Warsaw’s Progresja Music Zone club Oct. 11.

Active for over 45 years, Nazareth have earned the status of one of the biggest acts in rock history, with more the 60 million albums and thousands of concerts under their belts. The band members teamed up in December 1968 in Dunfermline, Scotland, inspired by The Beatles and The Rolling Stones. They moved to London in 1970 and released their debut album the following year. Nazareth did not establish an international audience until 1975, when their album Hair of the Dog came out. Perhaps their best-known single to date is a cover of the ballad “Love Hurts,” originally recorded by American band The Everly Brothers.

The Polish concert is a date on Nazareth’s European tour, which is entitled Changing Times. The Warsaw show promises to be a classic Nazareth concert, with new vocalist Carl Sentance taking the place of Dan McCafferty. Sentance, 54, is a seasoned performer who previously fronted rock bands Krokus and Tokyo Blade and worked with such renowned musicians as Geezer Butler (Black Sabbath), Paul Chapman (UFO), Vinny Appice (Dio, Black Sabbath) and Don Airey (Deep Purple).

In addition to hits such as “This Flight Tonight,” “Holy Roller,” “Dream On” and “Love Hurts,” Warsaw audiences will hear several new tracks, as despite their long history, Nazareth are not looking back and have new material in the pipeline.
