Legendary Group Set to Headline Zurich’s
2013 International Country Music Festival, March 1-2  
MTB to Record Performances for Future Live Concert Album
Nashville, Tenn. (February 11, 2013) – It’s been more than 35 years since the legendary MARSHALL TUCKER BAND (MTB)
rocked the continent of Europe.  But even then, the iconic southern
band never had the opportunity to perform in Switzerland, a European
country that is one of the most widely recognized for its love of
country music.
early March, for the first time in 41 years, the MTB will travel
‘across the pond’ for its first-ever live concert performances in
Switzerland.  The MTB is set to perform March 1-2 in Zurich,
Switzerland, at the 2013 International Country Music Festival, held at the Schützenhaus Albisgütli Event
Center.  The two-month festival also includes performances from Lorrie
Morgan, the LoCash Cowboys, the Quebe Sisters, Della Mae and Aaron
Watson, among others. 
“We are so excited to have been asked to play at such a prestigious event,” notes MTB lead singer and founding member Doug Gray.
 “It’s been almost four decades since we last played Europe and even
then, we didn’t get to visit Switzerland.  We plan on arriving a few
days early so we can enjoy the city.”
The MTB plans to record the performances for a future live concert CD.
