Simple Minds confirm Brighton 2022 date
Simple Minds have confirmed a Brighton date for 2022 as part of their rescheduled tour.
Spokeswoman Kara McCabe said: “Due to the ongoing coronavirus situation and uncertainty surrounding the easing of restrictions, Simple Minds’ August and September 2021 shows have been postponed. The rearranged dates will instead take place in March and April 2022. Customers are advised to keep hold of their tickets as they will be valid for the rescheduled dates.
“Simple Minds are fronted by founder members Jim Kerr (vocals) and Charlie Burchill (guitar) who in 2019 celebrated their 40th anniversary. Simple Minds have experienced a remarkable journey since releasing their debut album Life in a Day in 1979.
“Constantly evolving, the band’s rousing choruses and booming atmospherics made them one of the most iconic bands of the Eighties. Along the way, they’ve landed five UK #1 albums, topped the singles charts on both sides of the Atlantic, sold over 60 million albums and packed stadiums the world over.
“But the story didn’t end there. After taking some time out, they returned revitalised and resurgent with the 2014 album ‘Big Music’ and have maintained that upward momentum ever since. They claimed the Q Inspiration Award that same year, which was followed by an Ivor Novello in 2016. And when 2018’s ‘Walk Between Worlds’ album crashed into the UK charts at #4, it represented their highest position in 23 years. No wonder that the Manic Street Preachers, Moby, Primal Scream and many others cite Simple Minds as a vital inspiration.
“Simple Minds arena tour will see them perform iconic tracks from their extensive back catalogue. Final tickets for all shows are available now from www.simpleminds.com and http://gigst.rs/sm.”
