Nazareth - O2 Academy, Newcastle-upon-Tyne (UK) - 20th March 2012

They may not have received the adulation heaped on the likes of Zeppelin, Purple and Sabbath over the years but there`s no doubting the legacy of Scottish Rockers Nazareth is just as tangible. To those growing up in the `70`s Nazareth were just about the only Hard Rock act that featured regularly on Top of the Pops.

While most bands of that era were either glitter coated Glam bands who received the bulk of the airplay or the more album orientated Rock monsters who sold albums by the bucketful but never featured on mainstream television shows, Nazareth managed to cross that divide by producing a string of radio friendly hit singles yet retaining that gritty, streetwise Rock edge that ensured that their credibility remained intact.

Built around vocalist Dan McCafferty and Pete Agnew (bass) along with long time guitarist Jimmy Murrison and Agnew`s son, Lee on drums, Nazareth delivered almost two hours of dirty hard edged Rock`n' Roll. McCafferty in particular was impressive throughout with a paint stripping voice that makes Brian Johnson sound like Lionel Ritchie. Although their set is filled with crowd pleasing classics such as ‘Bad Bad Boy’ and ‘Hair of the Dog’, Nazareth didn`t rest on their laurels as they aired plenty of material from 2009`s ‘The Newz’ (‘See Me’) and their latest release ‘Big Dogz’, with ‘Big Dogs Gonna Howl’ being particularly well received. It`s clear that the new material has revitalised the band but they don`t ignore the hard-core fans either with the vintage ‘Whiskey Drinkin’ Woman’ and ‘This Month`s Messiah’ going down a storm.

The biggest surprise of the night, announced as a "world exclusive", was the appearance of two young Nazareth fans/Rappers who joined the band onstage after writing to the McCafferty telling him of their new Urban arrangement of ‘Enough Love’. This sounded like a recipe for disaster on paper but it actually worked and full credit to the guys for getting up in front of a crowd of Rockers and bringing a new slant to the Nazareth standard.

Rounding off the night with the quick-fire rampage of ‘Razamanaz’, the evergreen ‘Love Hurts’ and the sing-a-long ‘Broken Down Angel’ sent the crowd home more than happy and Nazareth showed once again why they are one of Scotland`s most loved musical institutions.
