Legends at the Concert Hall

Simple Minds
Simple Minds

Rock veterans are riding on the crest of a wave thanks to their acclaimed recent album Big Music.

They are currently touring the country and will be at Nottingham’s Royal Concert Hall on Sunday, May 3.

Big Music is their first album of new material in five years and continues the recent renaissance and reappraisal for the band.

The album is a swaggering collection that reiterates the band’s world-class credentials, a culmination of a decade of stealthy rediscovery that has seen the band make two albums, 2005’s Black & White 050505 and 2009’s Graffiti Soul, before reminding us all of their legacy with the acclaimed X5 boxed set and subsequent 5X5 Live album and tour.

With a touring cast that now sees Jim Kerr and Charlie Burchill joined by stalwart drummer Mel Gaynor, keyboardist Andy Gillespie, Ged Grimes, backing vocalists Sarah Brown and Catherine AD (additional keys and guitar). Simple Minds have a settled line-up that re-affirms their status as one of the great live bands.

They will also be playing some of the greatest hits from their glittering career.
