Classic rock veterans Nazareth play the Cultural Centre July 8.

Nazareth coming to Chilliwack tonight

The supergroup Nazareth performs Monday July 8 at the Chilliwack Cultural Centre, Chilliwack

With mega hits like Love Hurts and This Flight Tonight, Nazareth carved out a name for itself in the world of hard rock.

The supergroup Nazareth performs Monday July 8 at the Chilliwack Cultural Centre, Chilliwack.

Often copied and frequently covered, but never duplicated this band proves longevity is all about the music.

From angry young Scots raging against the machine to trailblazers of their genre, original members Dan McCafferty and Pete Agnew are still at it after 40 years.  When they hit the big league their image – long corkscrew hair, loud flares, and platform boots – did not always sit comfortably with the folks back home, but the music was setting everyone on fire. Over the years the image has changed, but the long roster of hits remains, including “Razamanaz”, “Beggars Day/Rose In The Heather”, “Hit The Fan”, “Hair Of The Dog”, “No Mean City”, “This Flight Tonight”, “Changin’ Times”, “Night Woman”, “Expect No Mercy”, “Light Comes Down”, “Too Bad, Too Sad”, “Right Between The Eyes” and the quintessential “Love Hurts”.

The band’s release ‘God of the Mountain’, a fantastic high-energy recording has been adopted by the Austrian Ski Federation as their official song for the 2012/2013 season.  This will include the World Championships in 2013.  Tickets $54.50 (Plus Facility Fee & Service Charges) available at Centre Box Office.  Charge by phone (604-391-SHOW (7469)) or online at www.chilliwackculturalcentre.ca.
