Glittering Prize

True Caledonian legends, Simple Minds have moved from humble beginnings in late 70s suburban Glasgow to transatlantic stadium superstars who provided the soundtrack to some of the biggest films of the 80s.

Leader Jim Kerr says he’s most proud that over their 35+ year career, their mission to stay one of the best live bands on the planet has remained unchanged.

In 2012 they revisited their first five albums on stage during the critically acclaimed 5x5 tour. This year’s Greatest Hits + album and tour has seen them playing classic hits and new material to the biggest audiences since their 80’s heyday.

Stand by for a rousing set from one of Scotland’s finest.
