No Andy, no Mel, that's a great shame, it was the best band dynamic since Mick left.

Great news Jim Kerr ! A little tempered by the announcement of the departure of Mel and Andy, but in any case, we trust you Jim & Charlie to delight our ears! If Simple Minds Official looking for a new drummer, I'm ready to follow you with the greatest of all the world's pleasures, in the style of Mel mixed with mine, I'm sure it would be great ! ! !

Mel is the best drummer in the world will be missed ,and Andy was outstanding ,a big chunk of simple minds gone sad news .

As a longtime Danish fan of Simple Minds since 1984 - can someone please explain/clarify why Mel Gaynor and Andy Gillespie do not feature in the line up for the upcoming tour??? I´m a bit bewildered....

Fantastic Album artwork. How to convince my wife that a SM gig in Manchester on Valentines day (on a school night) is romantic.... JK will you take requests?? Love Song, Let there be love, Stand by Love (which I'll be doing). Actually Stand by Love and Speed your Love to me, were fantastic on the Acoustic tour, any chance of releasing studio 'acoustic' versions of these???

Sad to see Mel and Andy leave but this line up was awesome on the acoustic shows. Cherisse is an amazing drummer, Catherine and Geordie also very talented. Welcome on board guys.

I`m sad Mel has left the band 🙁 Hope he will return someday as long as I`m waiting Mick would come back too...

is there no mel and andy?

Wow can't wait!!!!! Big Music was outstanding and can't wait for the tour next year! Thanks guys

Interesting pic... reminds me on the video of 'Promised' back in the 80s...

Brilliant news, bring it on.

Now this is what I call BRILLIANT news! 😍

Is that a young Jim? I'd love to know. MIND games....

Great news ('bout the new Album), sad 'bout Mel & Andy 😕

Loving the art work...alot!!! Hoping for alot of synths please....

Can't wait to here it, my friends .... Can't wait.

Hope we can get tickets to see you all then.

It's aaaaaaaall about the quality of the songs....

Great! SM for ever! See you hopefuly in Munich or I travel

Graeme Hogg, tour as well hopefully!

Absoultly love love love it!

Best place to buy the tickets? Is it only gigs and tours selling presage on wed ?

Gonna try for Manchester or Glasgow !!

Just gets better and better being a fan of the band ,

Looks like the pre sale is for the UK dates only?

Buy album to access tickets....what a cunning marketing ploy!!!! 😠

I remember the time when I first heard Belfast Child.I immediately fell in love with the band..and his music.Then I was a child, and now, after so many years Simple Minds are still playing !! Thank you for that !! I can hardly wait for a new album 👍

As much as I love Simple Minds, I cannot help being disappointed with yet another lineup change. Is there a need for a band to have constant lineup changes. I really want to be positive and am definitely excited about new music but the lineup issue has been one that's occurred so much in SM's history and clearly frustrated a large number of fans. It's not a criticism of the individuals because clearly they are all fantastic musicians. Maybe I just don't like change.

After the amazing sound and atmosphere of the acoustic tour, it’s no wonder that Cherisse and Gourdie are involved going forward. There’s nothing wrong with change to keep things fresh, and I think this tour is going to be pretty exciting. Maybe in a couple of years there will be a five piece doing another 5*5 type tour but in the meantime why not mix it up a bit?

Can we have a statement confirming Andy and Mel will be back or if this lineup is to stay. So hoping for a 40th anniversary tour with them all together and the big music sound again.

C’est pas croyable de ne pas voir Mel Gaynor faire partie du groupe pour le prochain album. C’est une perte immense pour les SM. Après la valse des bassites cela recommence avec le batteur. Un groupe de rock se forge un son et une identité avec l’ensemble des membres originels, Jim Kerr et Charlie Burchill ne suffisent pas à constituer les Simple-Minds. On veux revoir Michael Mc Neil, Derek Forbes and Mel Gaynor...👍

Just when the band had made a compelling album with Big Music which was better than a rival combo's Songs of Innocence and collectively got its Mojo back then it seems to go again feels like the early 2000,s again. Like the artwork so far though

A bit underwhelmed with the very few amount of tour dates obviously and hopefully more to follow and Dublin needs to be on any tour. There were hints that Mel would not be part of this with all the recent praise for Chrisie, Simple minds are Jim and Charlie but losing Mel someone that has been with them since 1982 is not easy to swallow, Mel was not involved in “Good News”album or tour but did return to fold. Excited about new music though.

That’s just it. Over Forty years people grow and change and so does music. People tend to explore new things I wish Mel and Andi the best. Jim and Charlie are Legends I’m looking forward to what’s in store. It’s always brilliant.

Ooh I've just ordered my cd, excited much!! Bit confused re presale dates, 15/3/2017 for London huh?!! x

Hoping an Australian tour again soon? Wonder how they've re imagined their sound this time...

Ohhhh.....'kak' ...I'm on the road on Friday. How to get tix for Paradiso?🤔😓

This is no real... i do hope there is a full band later with mel and andy...i do not understand this lineup.

Find it sad that we have not been given an official reason for the loss of Mel and Andy I'm gutted

are Mel Gaynor and Andy Gillespie playing on the record

That's my 34 th birthday <3 great day to release the new album

Can't wait to go back to the barrowlands after sooo many years 🙌

Oh yes, Paradiso again!! Please play the American!

Hope its got some big bass riffs😉 trademark Simple Minds.

Gotta get me one of those Barrowland tickets.....!!!

You will need to be quick for the barrowland in Glasgow as it only holds 2100 people
