Simple Minds to play city gig

Chart veterans Simple Minds are to appear at Nottingham’s Royal Concert Hall for a performance there on Friday, April 12.

Simple Minds have been many things to many people over the last 35 years: sound scapers, sound-shapers, soundtrack makers, serial chart-toppers. They have influenced acts as diverse as the Manic Street Preachers, Primal Scream, Moby and The Horrors.

They have been sampled by Nicky Minaj, David Guetta, Joey Negro and Freddy Bastone.

They have provided memorable movie moments for directors Christian Carion (L’Affaire Farewell), Gregor Jordan (The Informers), Cameron Crowe (Elizabethtown) and, of course, John Hughes (The Breakfast Club).

They have topped the British charts half a dozen times, and now you can see them in action at the Royal Concert Hall.

Tickets to see them in action are £37.50-£49.50.

They are available from the box office on 0115 9895555 or by going online to
