Simple Minds will be taking their new album Simple Minds Acoustic on the road, joined by special guest The Anchoress, including a special appearance at Brighton Dome Concert Hall. The gig will see them perform a career spanning collection of songs acoustically.
This follows several years in which the band has gone from strength-to-strength, becoming more relevant than ever; their 2014 album Big Music received across the board praise, with MOJO magazine declaring it “their best album in 30 years”. Simple Minds Acoustic continues the band’s artistic quest with a one-off album release of stripped down and re-imagined songs spanning their eclectic and illustrious career.
As a group who formed in the punk era and found their mojo through a shared love of Bowie, Kraftwerk and electronic dance, Simple Minds are not natural acoustic adventurers, but they have done a remarkable job here, adding fresh nuance to brilliant songs without trampling on sacred memories.
