Nazareth, 40th anniversary gig, Alhambra

they played the Usher Hall in Edinburgh as part of their ‘No mean City’ tour,.

Catching them live 40 years on, in their home town, in front of a capacity 2000 crowd, was rather special.

Dan McCafferty’s vocals continued to define the band’s sound as they tore through their back catalogue with sheer glee.
