04 Oct, 2018 Simple Minds to Headline Newcastle 500 in Australia
Just announced, #SimpleMinds will play in Australia on the 24th of November. They will headline the Coates Hire Newcastle 500 alongside acclaimed Australian band #BirdsofTokyo at the No 1 Sports Oval, New South Wales.
The concert is free with any ticket for the Newcastle 500:
The mix of a signature international act and an Australian great is expected to draw a big crowd of locals and the thousands of visitors flocking to the Hunter for the Supercars grand final.
“To have such an iconic international act along with such a huge Australian band in Birds of Tokyo is the perfect combination,” Supercars CEO Sean Seamer said.
“These bands are playing to sold out shows, so to have them in Newcastle is going to make for a very special weekend.”
Simple Minds are one of the biggest bands to come out of the UK with five number ones and more than 70 million albums sold. They continue to tour with their biggest and latest hits.
“The concert stage is where Simple Minds do their best work, we give 100 per cent of ourselves every night, so Simple Minds are delighted to be coming back to Australia to perform at this event,” Simple Minds lead singer Jim Kerr said. “We’ll be playing songs from throughout our extensive catalogue, going right back to the start and bringing it all up to date. Hope to see you there.”
The album #WalkBetweenWorlds is available now!
