Next year is a milestone in the Fischer-Z journey; the 40th anniversary of the band’s first show, the release of a 20th studio album and the pulling together of the Fischer-Z legacy in a continuous timeline from 1977-2017. The new album ‘Building Bridges’ includes songs about some of the major challenges of our time; to build bridges over religious divides, between political left and right, between rich and poor and conflicting attitudes toward global migration. It also has John Watts’ usual quota of people stories.
The Fischer-Z 'Building Bridges' live shows beginning in Spring 2017 will be in two parts. The first 30 minutes will feature songs from the new album and the rest of the show will be mainly hits from the first three Fischer-Z records – Building a bridge between Fischer-Z now and the classic period in the late 70's!
