POST AMERICA - EN ROUTE TO AUSTRALIA

“We have this relationship with our audience. To us - it is increasingly kind of private - rarely relying on big mainstream media. Between us and them only, that is much more our reality.

If critics want to write, cynics want to talk. Good. So go ahead. Feel free. Spread the word please.
But truly, we do have our own thing. And nothing so far is able to break that.”

It can however be renewed from time to time. Reinforced even.
And that, for us, is what touring, night after night, is all about.

It is what these last two months in North America has been about.
Renewing and reconnecting the relationship - we have with our audience.

An audience that in turn, continues to give so much to us and our music.

This time next week im on the plane to Newcastle, and meeting Gillian Spencer for the first time although I feel I've known her forever 🙂 you bring us together and I'm forever grateful xxx cannot wait to see you again ❤

You have the best audience of the world!!! Thank you Jim for your kindness !!!

Words could be bad or good, life is made of bad or good moments...we all grow with bad or good, they make us thinking and try to do better.. So are Simple Minds, always on the wave and will stay...for many years I’ll be there🙌🏼 Enjoy Australia🇦🇺..the new world

Safe travels . Its ot too hot here atm this us Terrigal today

Fantastic year for Simple Minds music..Met loads of friends and been to new places..Thanks again for a brilliant N.A. tour! Enjoy Australia! ☆♡☆

Yeah! After Miami gig My batteries are recharged! Energy and joy! Paola came from Italy

Once you guys and girls hit Australia's shores, you won't want to leave. Safe trip and will be at the Newcastle gig in spirit 🙂

Thank you simple minds 😍 for coming to my country 🤩 hope to see you guys again in concert 🤩💞

Amazing tour please come back soon was lucky enough to see you guys play in New York and Miami just wonderful

Have to say that continuing to record and and invest in the future; rather than rest on your laurels, has seen you earn everything you deserve. Please play some UK shows soon.

Renewed and reconnected! Again, thank you for giving us your all with every single performance and for connecting with fans on a personal level ! You have many many fans in North America, as you well know, and we patiently await your return!!! I know I am waiting for that next DC show!

Right now I could have been on a plane, instead I'm lying in bed listening to Alex Harvey... Things could be much worse, I guess. A miracle can still happen, right? (the Faith Healer just played... I'll consider it a sign)

We think the relationship is special too....and you’ll be here in NSW very soon to reconnect with your audience in Oz. 👍

Charlie! Charlie! he's our man! If he cant help you Jim Kerr can!! Love this band♥️

En route to Australia, too, if only in my mind! 🙂 Safe travels, Simple Minds, and look forward to seeing all those wonderful videos and pics beamed back across the world. 😃

Keep doing your stuff, keep being who you are. Respect. 💙🧡💙🧡💙🧡

Cheers Minds!!! Loved reconnecting this time around and felt the power!!!!

That is what makes Simple Minds absolutely amazing, the love for your audience <3

So true-that was the pure magic of the Simple Minds concert: the heart-to-heart connection. We felt the love in your voices and your music! Thank you so much, from my heart to yours.

What a great experience it was in Portland, Oregon to meet Simple Minds. I got re-introduced to a great band, group of artists and feel appreciated. I will go see Simple Minds again.

Well said Jim. What a year it has been for you guys......and it isn't finished! Australia beckons. Have a fantastic journey. 🎸🎸🎸

Friends need not be near or around often to remain friends, Jim. We in America do wish you were closer and here more often, but never doubt the bond that is there. It is real and it is enduring.

Well said, great show. Have a good time in Australia.

Have a safe trip all. I wish you have a great gigs there

Ciao Jim già sveglio? in inglese ferma al semaforo faccio fatica 😁 belle parole e grazie! in bocca al lupo per Australia tvb Adri
