This Saturday night at Electric Circus in Market Street Mike Peters, lead singer of The Alarm and singer with Scotland’s Big Country. makes a quick return to the capital after playing Hard Rock Cafe’s Pinktober in October.
In a solo show Mike will be playing tunes from The Alarm, Big Country and also some of his own songs in what promises to be an intriguing gig.
Mike Peters is in my view one of the most passionate singers that I have had the privilege of not only seeing live with the bands he fronts, but also of interviewing. It is easy to tell from speaking to Mike that he is very committed to his music. He is most certainly one of the hardest working men in the music industry. He has played at the top of Ben Nevis and at the now well-established “gatherings” in Wales too. Mike Peters is a prolific musician and songwriters and with songs like 68 guns, Rain in the Summertime and Spirit of ’76 he will come to Edinburgh with a most impressive set list.
However Mike has also battled leukemia and cancer and has set up his Cancer Charity Love, Hope and Strength to help others in the same position.
With tickets priced £14 (cheap considering the calibre of performer) and with support from Joe Silva it will be a rockin’ night!
