By the time the second Rockpalast concert by Big Country at the Biskuithalle in Bonn in 1991 rolled around, their performance at the Grugahalle in Essen had already become legend: At the 17th Rockpalast Night in March of 1986 Big Country made the grand finale to the first Rockpalast series. Stuart Adamson 's lyrics and his music (guitar partner: Bruce Watson) are above all what make up the character of Big Country. When both guitars imitate the sound of the bagpipes, their roots in Scottish tradition are clearly audible. "Chance" from the album "The Crossing" is an example of Adamson 's melancholic lyrics. At the same time, "Chance" live in concert was always an occasion for a boisterous and cheerful exchange with the public.
