Simple Minds brings new energy to the 02 arena with a hits laden nostalgic tour date. Back in 2020, the band was 10 days into a world tour when the rest of the tour dates were cancelled because of Covid, and now the band is back in full force.

I’ve been listening to Scottish stadium giants Simple Minds since the late 80s – admittedly only because my older sister played their songs on repeat – along with the likes of stablemates Texas and The Proclaimers. Fast forward 35 years and Simple Minds are still packing out arenas as they blaze a trail across the UK

Simple Minds were back at the Motorpoint Arena on Sunday night as part of their Global Tour and they managed to sell out what promised to be a night of pure nostalgia.

The 90s guitar riff and keyboard melody resonate throughout the arena and have many people standing in appreciation, something that does not wane during their concise ten song set.
