and KT Tunstall
Simple Minds celebrate the release of their new album ‘Walk Between Worlds’ in February 2018, in advance of the tour and prepare to deliver classic hits and tracks from the new album, certain to delight fans.
One of the most successful and influential British bands ever, Simple Minds have been creating their extraordinary, inventive, adventurous, and highly influential soundscape for almost 40 years. They have achieved six no.1 albums in the UK, as well as hitting the top spot in countless other territories including Germany, Italy, France, Spain, Australia and New Zealand. Since forming in Glasgow in the late 1970’s and named after a lyric from David Bowie's Jean Genie, the band have sold more than 70 million records worldwide and ‘Walk Between Worlds’ is their 17th album of new material.
On GRANDSLAM 2018, audiences will have the opportunity to see and hear Simple Minds revisit the many chapters of their storied career, taking in classic songs like Don't You (Forget About Me) and Alive & Kicking, Promised You A Miracle and Glittering Prize, Waterfront and Sanctify Yourself, and bringing things right up to date with the inclusion of tracks from the new album.
“When we started Simple Minds, our objective was to be considered as one of the great live bands. A band that had the desire to go all around the world – playing everywhere and anywhere,” says Jim Kerr. “That challenge is ongoing, and we will relish touring all over the UK next summer, getting up close to so many who have supported us over the years.”
