Press release:

Legendary Scottish band Simple Minds will headline the 600 Sounds music festival on the Broadwater Parklands as part of this year’s Armor All Gold Coast 600, October 21-23.

In their only Australian appearance this year, Simple Minds will play some of their biggest hits including their #1 worldwide smash – Don’t You (forget about me).

The band is currently on a Greatest Hits tour of Europe where they are receiving rave reviews for their shows, which have included other hits such as Waterfront, Promised You a Miracle, Alive and Kicking and Belfast Child

In a 34-year career, Simple Minds have played some of the biggest venues in the world and were a part of Band Aid in 1985 and headlined the Freedomfest concerts for the then imprisoned Nelson Mandela in 1988.

Simple Minds will close the Saturday Night portion of the two-night festival, which is part of the Armor All Gold Coast 600, which will this year incorporate 28 international drivers with local heroes in a round of the V8 Supercar Championship Series on the streets of Surfers Paradise.

The festival will open on Friday with some of Australia’s best hip-hop and dance artists, including Drapht, Potbelleez, Bag Raiders, Tonight Only and Illy.

Legendary Australia rock acts Hoodoo Gurus, Eskimo Joe and Masters Apprentices will blast out some homegrown hits before Simple Minds close the show the following night.

A three-day general admission ticket to the Armor All Gold Coast 600 gives you three days of racing action and admission to both nights of the 600 Sounds festival – individual concert tickets cannot be purchased.

Simple Minds front man Jim Kerr is a motor racing fan and knows several of the former Formula One drivers who will be competing at this year’s event.

“I think the whole rock and race format is great and we cannot wait to get down there in October,” said Kerr. “We hope many of our Australian fans will head to the Gold Coast to be a part of the whole weekend which has an enormous reputation around the world”.

While the Saturday night audience is set to be a more “mature” crowd, Friday’s list is aimed directly at a younger generation and a whole new audience of V8 Supercar fans.

The Potbelleez are tearing up the dance scene with hits such as ‘Hello’ and ‘Don’t Hold Back’. Regulars on the live music scene, they have crowds all over Australia dancing to their unique style of music.

Heating up the growing Australian hip-hop scene is West Australian artist, Drapht. His catchy and entertaining lyrics have caught the attention of not just the hip-hop audience, but the mainstream market.

His distinctive track Rapunzel is a witty commentary on society, filled with clever Australian puns; he is forging his own voice and pushing Australian hip-hop further.

Also putting his stamp on the Australian hip-hop scene is Illy, his current track ‘It Can Wait (ft. Owl Eyes) has also launched into the mainstream music scene, after breaking through in the ‘Triple J’s Hottest 100 List’.

The Melbourne artist is known for his live stage presence, and has gained a core following at his live shows, another voice growing the Australian hip-hop audience.

V8 Supercars Chairman, Tony Cochrane said that the $136 three-day general admission ticket again provided one of the best value for money buys in Australian entertainment.

“Fans will get three days of fantastic V8 Supercar action and two nights of some of Australia’s and the world’s biggest acts – I am not sure where you can get all that for $136 bucks,” said Cochrane.

“Simple Minds are a huge international act and we are delighted that they have accepted our invitation to come down and play a one-off show for us.
“So many of their hits are timeless and their headlining of the Saturday night show will be something pretty special.”

The Hoodoo Gurus are Australian rock royalty since they formed in 1981, hit’s such as ‘What’s My Scene’ still resonates with a new audience, ‘What’s my scene’ undertook a revamp for the National Rugby League ‘That’s My Team’ campaign.

They were given Australian music’s highest honor in 2007 when they were inducted into the ARIA Hall of Fame; they continue to perform to sell out crowds entertaining audiences with their classic hits and new music.

Masters Apprentices are an Australian sensation; Legendary Melbourne DJ Stan Rofe once proclaimed that they were Australia’s answer to the Rolling Stones.

They are a chameleon like band who moved through psychedelia and “bubblegum” pop, finally became one the first and best progressive hard rock groups of the early 70s and continue to have an impact on the landscape of Australian rock.

Eskimo Joe has exploded from its Indie Rock roots into one of Australia’s foremost bands; their 2006 album ‘Black Fingernails, Red Wine’ went four-times platinum.

They are credited as one of the most innovative bands in the country with their single ‘Foreign Land’ becoming the most played Australian song on radio in 2009.

Music fans and race fans alike will be guaranteed a host of exceptional racing and superb musical talent when racing and rock unite.

The Armor All Gold Coast 600 will be from October 21-23 on the streets of the Gold Coast and features a strong line up of International racecar drivers representing Formula 1, IndyCar, Touring Car, Sportscar and NASCAR categories from all over the world.

Type Of Show
Many of you will be wondering if Simple Minds will playing their critically acclaimed 5X5 LIVE! show or perhaps a compilation of hits from their entire career? Well there will actually be 3 types of show this summer, dependent upon whether they are festivals (in which case the festival promoter gets some say in what is played and also stipulates the length of time the band are on stage), and also whether they are indoor or outdoor shows.
The type of show is mentioned next to each date and hopefully this will give you some idea of what to expect:

5×5 Festival Set – Mainly comprising of songs from the 5X5 era plus a couple of surprises – set length determined by the festival
5×5 Full Set – These shows will have longer sets and will include more of the 5×5 tracks (but may also on occasion include some more recent hits)
5×5 + Hits – A mixture of 5X5 tracks plus hits from throughout the bands career

Type Of Show
Many of you will be wondering if Simple Minds will playing their critically acclaimed 5X5 LIVE! show or perhaps a compilation of hits from their entire career? Well there will actually be 3 types of show this summer, dependent upon whether they are festivals (in which case the festival promoter gets some say in what is played and also stipulates the length of time the band are on stage), and also whether they are indoor or outdoor shows.
The type of show is mentioned next to each date and hopefully this will give you some idea of what to expect:
5×5 Festival Set – Mainly comprising of songs from the 5X5 era plus a couple of surprises – set length determined by the festival
5×5 Full Set – These shows will have longer sets and will include more of the 5×5 tracks (but may also on occasion include some more recent hits)
5×5 + Hits – A mixture of 5X5 tracks plus hits from throughout the bands career

‘Live celebrations of 40 years of disruptions’
Virgin Records, the revolutionary British record label launched by Richard Branson in 1973 celebrates its 40th Anniversary this year.

To celebrate this landmark year a series of live shows will take place this autumn featuring some of the most prolific names in music past and present. The shows will happen at prestigious venues across London including Shepherds Bush Empire, KOKO, Brixton Academy and York Hall.
The Virgin 40th Anniversary Live Celebrations will run over a month from mid-October to mid-November.
