Big Country Tour 2000

In early 2000 Mike Peters began an acoustic support for the Big Country “Final Fling” tour that is historic for morphing into an electric tour, which in-turn gave birth the modern day version of The Alarm, then named “The Alarm 2000) by Ian Grant the manager of Big Country who used the name on the tour posters. Eddie Macdonald joined the band for some of the electric dates on this tour.
