Simple Minds Celebrate 30 Years.

Simple Minds recently announced plans to perform a number of UK shows to celebrate 30 years in the music business. The band will perform their legendary album New Gold Dream (81,82,83,84) in its entirety for the very first time. The second half of the concerts will focus on the bands more well known hits.

An excited Jim Kerr explained that they couldn't let this milestone go by without performing live. "Strangely enough, now that the time has probably come for us to maybe give a nod to the past and the journey that has evolved over three decades, I find that I am enthusiastically up for it."

The shows begin in November at the MEN Arena in Manchester.
