Simple Minds “Big Music” Tour 2015

Simple Minds, Glasgow’s pride and joy classic new wave rockers are embarking on a huge UK/European tour for their latest album “Big Music”, which was released in October 2014.

The Massive tour kicks off February 7th, 2015 at the Coliseum in Lisbon, Portugal and continues through May back in the UK. Then in November the band continues the “big music” with shows in Belgium, Germany, France, Amsterdam and Italy in November.

Simple Minds are one of the coolest bands ever. I have been listening to this band since 1982 and they have always been one of my personal favorites. They put on remarkable and amazing live shows, and front man Jim Kerr is such a delight and a great singer and performer.

It is so great that after all these years they are still going strong. I saw them when they came to Los Angeles in 2012, but they only played ONE SHOW on the whole west coast. I sincerely hope Simple Minds can come back to the USA. It amazes me how strong of a following the have in Europe but not in the US. These guys make amazing music and it is emotional and thought provoking. So let’s give it up for Simple Minds, a great European band, and let’s bring them back to North America soon! Someone, Somewhere, in Summertime…
