Debra RitchieJust AMAZING! Paula Amos & I think this was one of the best times we've seen you (over the last 30 years). So personal & the arrangements were awsum. My highlight was Waterfront but LOVED the whole show. Love you guys....always ❤

John McEvoyLoved the gig last night. Jim really worked the crowd and the whole band seemed to really enjoy the night. Sarah Brown was amazing and in particular I loved her singing Dirty old town which she made her own, think she should record it. This was my first simple minds concert but I hope if won't be my last.

Liz JohnsonLast night was sublime, of the five shows I've seen this tour London was hands down the best. I witnessed a band at the top of their game and the best frontman in the business show respect to their audience by rocking their arses off and giving them the night of their lives. People ask why I travel to see you again and again, last night was the reason, AMAZING 👍

Natalie GaleWhat an amazing night - thank you so much. From start to finish the music was truly fantastic, the singing awesome & the moves well I think it puts the rest of us to shame. Your ability to get the audience totally involved is just legend. You made a young(ish) lady dancing her socks off at the front an extremely happy person who was still buzzing hours later. Thank you ❤️

Tony ElfordNottingham is a great place to visit for a night out remember going to see Shakatak back in the 80s. Down here in New Zealand we missed out in the 5x5 tour for us early 80s fans booho, are we going to get a taste of acoustic down under or just blown away by your new Album down here first, just to see you down here yet again would be an answer to all our prayers.

John DeggNow that was one of the best! Crowd on their feet all night on an acoustic set is remarkable. Mandela Day, Chelsea Girl, Big Sleep in my top 3 from the night. Great nights where you can disappear into music for a few hours. Thanks Simple Minds!

Christopher MackayI don't really do Facebook, but as a longtime fan I just had to sign in and show my appreciation of a great great night. 18th time I've seen you all over the place down the years (smallfry compared to many I'm sure). It was also my first time I've managed to come see you since 2003 (that little thing called life and the upheavals it can bring getting in the way). I really have to say you sounded and looked good as you've ever done (with the exception of Jim's red velvet jacket - haha I jest - you looked all suave and sophisticamated, probably a look only Jim could pull off though!) What really took me aback was the new additions to the lineup over the last decade which seemed to have given the music a new lease of life and a new layer / dimension, and so I tip my invisible hat to all of you for what you bring to the table. Cherisse is like a stick of dynamite, she's amazing to listen to and watch, I'm sure my jaw was wide-open in awe more than a few times. Also my first time witnessing Sarah Brown what a classy powerhouse of a singer. Really enjoyed Gordy's input and his well-deserved time to shine in the limelight which he lapped up and quite rightly so, thank you for keeping the wheels on the Simple Minds train good man! Also really enjoyed Catherine AD, and will definitely be checking her out in times ahead. Am also really happy that you have Ged Grimes on board with you, he's a really good fit for SM and I've enjoyed his input in recent years. You guys still have Stephen Pollard doing your lights? Whoever it was, they did a noticeably grand, yet subtle job, and that chandelier looked fab, hopefully there will be no Delboy / Grandad type incidents with it! Got to say Jim was the most relaxed and chatty I've ever seen and heard him (and I've listened to hundreds and hundreds of those naughty live tapes down the years), and it was a joy to witness, I have a feeling he probably managed to look almost each and everyone of us in the eyes during the course of the night, not many artists can reach out that much and make everyone feel included and I hope you guys could feed off our enthusiasm. And I loved the fact that you walked out amongst the audience for a few minutes, it was a real nice touch, and thankfully all us SM nutters are mellowing with age and as such are just a wee bit more dignified than we may have been 25-30 years ago, so hopefully you survived it intact! And as for our beloved guitar hero Sir Charles of Burchill, you did an especially amazing job, almost in tears watching you play Chelsea Girl and Glittering Prize. Highlights, so many, but Dirty Old Town was a fabulous surprise - a song I got to know through my fandom of your Irish mates in U2 who've also played it live a few times down the years, a very fitting tribute and a lovely way to end what's been a very emotional week for any decent person on the planet who's seen the news this week. Have a great rest of tour! TLDR; Brilliant, you never disappoint! Looking forward to whatever you put together for 40th Anniversary celebrations, please come and see us in Nottingham again! I will be there, I will be there, I will be there!

Scott SimpsonA great night , any aspiring young drummer should check out Cherisse Osei she was absolutely awesome on the percussion , being hit in the chest by the kick drum from the beginning to the end with those lightning fast drum fills was an absolute pleasure to witness , she gives the gig a different dimension then again it's not a bad band to fall into ,

Thankyou for a very fabulous entertaining evening. Hope you come back to Nottingham! Or to sheffield city hall.
