Glaswegian rockers Simple Minds are back in their home town of Glasgow in the Hydro Arena this November!
Simple Minds are heading on tour, and will be playing Glasgow’s Hydro Arena on the 28th of November 2015!
Simple Minds are arguably one Scotland’s if not the worlds best live bands and with a career spanning thirty years, Simple Minds have been responsible for some of the most innovative and enduring anthems in rock music.
Simple Minds have topped America’s Billboard chart, achieved six No.1 albums in the UK as well hitting the top spot in countless other territories including Germany, Italy, France, Spain, Australia and New Zealand. Founding members Jim Kerr (vocals) and Charlie Burchill (guitar, keyboards), along with drummer Mel Gaynor, are the core of the band, which currently features Andy Gillespie on keyboards and Ged Grimes on bass guitar.
The Glaswegian rock stalwarts have been making brilliant anthemic music for three decades.
Simple Minds had their greatest worldwide popularity from the mid-1980s to the early 1990s. The band, from the south side of Glasgow, produced a handful of critically acclaimed albums in the early 1980s, and later went on to produce some politically inspired and critically praised work.
Simple Minds have secured a string of successful hit singles. Their best known hit may be their no. 1 worldwide hit single ‘Don’t You (Forget About Me)’ in 1985, from the soundtrack of the classic 80’s John Hughes movie, The Breakfast Club. But they have accumulated an extensive and formidable back catalogue of rock anthems in the years since. In fact, Simple Minds have sold more than 40 millions albums worldwide since 1979.
