15 Mar, 2007 Simple set for Australia !
Simple Minds have arrived finally in Australia and are already well under way with preparations for the opening night of their co headlining tour of Australia and New Zealand with Inxs which will take place on March 17th at the Western Australian Cricket Ground.
Jim Kerr said ” Yes, it feels great being back here so soon after our successful tour last year. The opening night will be special, we are expecting to be playing in very warm temperatures and of course the venue is open air, it means we will need much energy in reserve to cope with our return to the concert stage.But then again when have we ever lacked energy?
Last time in Perth we could see many longtime fans from Scotland, England, Ireland etc, many of whom are now living out here. They were an extremely appreciative audience and we always respond to that! This tour will surely help our on going rebuilding live reputation in this part of the world and that is the main aim behind deciding to come back so soon!”
