Simple Minded - A Tribute to Simple Minds
For the past five years Simple Minded have been thrilling audiences across the UK with their lively, exciting and authentic tribute to Scotland’s own Simple Minds. With highly accomplished musicians, the band recreate the original sounds and energy with breath-taking accuracy. Simple Minded pride themselves on delivering an entertaining show and giving the audience what they want; and that means the hits. Classics such as Don’t You Forget About Me, Alive and Kicking, Up on the Catwalk and Promised You a Miracle all feature in the set along with songs from the entire Simple Minds back-catalogue right back to 1979.
In recent years, the band have attracted accolades from current and former members of Simple Minds. Of Simple Minded, Derek Forbes (original Bass player) said “I listened to the band and was well impressed”. Brian McGee (original drummer) said “Simple Minded are the best tribute band I’ve seen”, and Bruce Findlay (Manager) said “They sound like they did twenty years ago”. Both Derek Forbes and Brian McGee have been known to join Simple Minded on stage for special guest appearances.
The line-up of the band has never been stronger, nor has the excitement about performing the music been greater. George, Dave, Paul, Stevie and Stuart are all gearing up to take their show around the country, and promise their audience a fabulous night of Simple Minds’ greatest music.
