The Scottish rock legend Nazareth is coming to Z7. With a huge repertoire of gritty rock songs and swooning heartache ballads, they have thrilled rock fans around the world in recent decades. On the "Full Steam Ahead Tour," Nazareth will once again showcase their greatest hits.

Founded in 1968 in the Scottish city of Dunfermline, Nazareth belong to the first hard 'n' heavy generation of music history, alongside peers like Led Zeppelin, Deep Purple, Uriah Heep, and Black Sabbath. In 1971, Nazareth released their debut album. Success came after a tour opening for Deep Purple, with the release of the album "Razamanaz" in 1973, which was celebrated by critics and fans alike. This was followed by a string of hit records including "Loud N' Proud," "Rampant," and the smash hit "Hair Of The Dog" (1975). This album includes evergreens like the title track, later covered by Guns N' Roses on their album "The Spaghetti Incident," and the mega ballad "Love Hurts." The album reached platinum status in the US. The band has since released 25 studio albums, various live recordings, and countless hit compilations. With nearly 60 million records sold worldwide, Nazareth is the most successful Scottish music group internationally, alongside Simple Minds.

After several setbacks, bassist Pete Agnew is now the only surviving member of the original formation. He tirelessly continues to nurture and maintain the legacy of Nazareth on stage and in the studio. Alongside Pete, Jimmy Murrison has been in the band the longest. The guitarist is celebrating his 30th anniversary this year and is the longest-serving guitarist in the history of Nazareth. Drummer Lee Agnew, Pete's son, has been with the band for 25 years. And Carl Sentance (Persian Risk, Krokus) has been the band's voice for nearly ten years. In this lineup, two albums have already been created. The latest, in 2022, "Surviving The Law," reached number 10 in the Swiss charts. Nazareth has modernized their sound significantly, giving it a much harder edge, making the band accessible to a new audience. The album was produced in the Scottish Sub Station by the Swiss Yann Rouiller, who has been working with the band since 2008. "Surviving The Law" is a collaborative composition of all band members and vividly demonstrates that the flame of rock 'n' roll still burns in Nazareth.
