SIMPLE Minds will play the hits of their career during their tour in May.

Simple Minds have been responsible for some of the most enduring anthems in rock music since forming in 1977, whilst achieving commercial and critical acclaim. They released the Simple Minds Acoustic album in November and will be taking their songs on the road to be performed acoustically for the very first time in some of the UK’s most intimate venues.

Fans can expect to hear classics such as Promised You a Miracle, Glittering Prize, Waterfront, Chelsea Girl, Sanctify Yourself, Alive and Kicking and the US number one Don’t You (Forget About Me).

Frontman Jim Kerr said: "The concert stage is where Simple Minds do their best work, it is where we forged our distinctive live reputation. For that reason we look forward immensely to taking Simple Minds Acoustic out on tour.

“Don't be fooled by the acoustic tag however, these shows will be as energetic and passionate as ever. With a great live line-up and a set-list full of iconic Minds’ songs, it is bound to be a unique and memorable experience for both band and fans. See you there.”

Support on the UK tour is provided by Welsh multi-instrumentalist, songwriter and author The Anchoress (Catherine Anne Davies), whose debut album Confessions of a Romance Novelist has been nominated for the forthcoming Welsh Music Prize.
