Nazareth in Prague. The British rock band will perform today at the Karlín Forum Company News Pražská Drbna
The British rock band Nazareth, which was especially popular in what was then Czechoslovakia in the 1970s, will perform in Prague today, thanks to the songs Love Hurts and Dream On. As part of a world tour to the fiftieth anniversary of their existence, they also presented their latest studio album, Tattooed on My Brain, from 2018. According to the organizers, the performance will also offer old hits by Nazareth.
The band will perform in the metropolis with singer Carl Sentance. In 2013, the original singer Dan McCafferty left the band due to health problems. In February 2014, he was briefly replaced by Linton Osborne. Since February 2015, Nazareth has been singing Sentance, a former member of Leading Star and Persian Risk.
Nazareth perform frequently in the Czech Republic
From the original line-up in Nazareth, only bassist Pete Agnew now works. Drummer Darrell Sweet died during a band tour in 1999, replaced by bassist son Lee Agnew. Guitarist Jimmy Murrison completes the current line-up.
Nazareth perform frequently in the Czech Republic, in 2011 they even recorded the album Big Dogz in the Central Bohemian studio Sono. Two years later, Miloš Šmídmajer shot the documentary Nazareth with them – an endless rock party that brings the band backstage. The shooting took several years. The guests of the premiere in Prague were also members of the band.
The ballad Love Hurts was created by reworking other songs
The group was formed in 1968 in the Scottish city of Dunfermline, then operated in London. She celebrated success with records produced by Roger Glover from the more famous Deep Purple. The album Tattooed on My Brain is the 24th in the studio discography of Nazareth. Recordings released in the 1970s during their “golden age” such as Razamanaz, Loud’n’proud, Rampant or Hair Of The Dog are considered classic works of hard rock music. The ballad Love Hurts, which was created by reworking the songs of the American singer Boudleaux Bryant, has remained performed by Nazareth in radio playlists around the world to this day.
