Formed in the seventies, Simple Minds are one of the most successful bands ever to come from the UK, having sold over 60 million records worldwide, collected awards, and shot straight to the top of the music charts with their singles and albums.

With five UK number one albums under their belts, Simple Minds have received glittering acclaim for their work throughout their career, and in more recent years have seen a resurgence in popularity with audiences all over the world gathering in their thousands to see the band perform their well-known hits including ‘Promised You a Miracle’, ‘Glittering Prize’, ‘Someone Somewhere in Summertime’, ‘Waterfront’, ‘Alive and Kicking’, ‘Sanctify Yourself’ and ‘Don’t You Forget About Me’, with the group consistently regarded as one of the best live outfits of their generation. Referring to their 2022 Wembley Arena concert The Times said ‘back in fashion and on thrilling form.’

Vocalist Jim Kerr commented “Concerts are the life blood of Simple Minds, it’s where we and our audience come alive and energised through music. Four decades on from when we first set out, this global tour will demonstrate that Simple Minds are still alive and kicking!”

Simple Minds have received universal critical acclaim for their recent albums, with MOJO Magazine describing their 2015 release ‘Big Music’ as ‘their best album in 30 years’. In 2018, Simple Minds performed on their largest US tour to date, and their 2022 release ‘Direction Of The Heart’ launched into the top of album charts in the UK and internationally.
