Following a summer of festival appearances and their hugely acclaimed 5X5 tour, Simple Minds will be performing their Greatest Hits Live on 29th April at Colston Hall.
Simple Minds are one of the UK’s most successful rock groups to date. Having topped America’s Billboard chart, the Glasgow band have achieved six No.1 albums in the UK as well hitting the top spot in countless other territories including Germany, Italy, France, Spain, Australia and New Zealand.
Simple Minds are also arguably one of the best live bands in the world and over a thirty year career have been responsible for some of the most innovative and enduring anthems in rock music. Expect to hear songs from their extensive back catalogue including Alive and Kicking, Don’t You (Forget About Me), Waterfront and more.
The show will be in two halves with an interval and no support – a whole evening
of Simple Minds, who will be releasing their greatest hits collection Celebrate in March to coincide with the tour (and which will include 2 new tracks).
“When we started Simple Minds” says Jim Kerr, “our objective was to be considered as one of the great live bands. A band that had the desire to go all around the world – playing everywhere and anywhere. That challenge is ongoing and we will relish touring all over the UK next Spring, getting up close to so many who have supported us over the last three decades and more.”
