Simple Minds are back on the road in 2017 starting with a comprehensive tour of Australia & New Zealand. Australia was the first country in the world to embrace Simple Minds, giving the band its first ever hit single ‘Love Song’ and first Gold album ‘New Gold Dream (81-82-83-84)’. The love affair has continued ever since through countless chart-toppers like ‘Don’t You (Forget About Me)’, ‘Alive and Kicking’, ‘Promised You A Miracle’, ‘Glittering Prize’ and ‘Waterfront’ spanning eight Top 20 albums and hugely successful concert tours.
“It’s been said Simple Minds has a love affair with Australia and I think that’s true. It was the first country anywhere in the world to give us success and from our very first tours, we’ve always had a wonderful bond with Australian and New Zealand audiences. We have so many fantastic memories and can’t wait to be playing in both countries again.”
“We would like to remind all of our fans and members that despite hearing announcements elsewhere regarding possible concert performances etc, it is only when the date is announced here at simpleminds.com that you can be sure the information is 100% official and that contracts have been agreed”
