Tickets are on sale on to see Simple Minds in concert at Nottingham’s Royal Concert Hall on Friday, April 12.

Simple Minds have been many things to many people: 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.

Tickets to see them at their Nottingham show next year cost £37.50-£49.50.
