Eighties pop legends Simple Minds will play their greatest hits at Plymouth Pavilions and Colston Hall Bristol in 2013.

Following a summer of festival appearances and their hugely acclaimed 5×5 Tour, Simple Minds will be performing their Greatest Hits Live next year on a huge 28-date tour.

As one of the UK’s most successful rock groups to date, Simple Minds have topped America’s Billboard Chart, and the Glasgow band have achieved six number one albums in the UK as well as hitting the top spot in countless other territories including Germany, Italy, France, Spain, Australia and New Zealand.

Simple Minds are also arguably one of the best live bands in the world and over a 30-year career have been responsible for some of the most innovative and enduring anthems in rock music.

Expect to hear songs from their extensive back catalogue including Alive and Kicking, Don’t You (Forget About Me), Waterfront and more.

Speaking about the tour, singer Jim Kerr said: “When we started Simple Minds our objective was to be considered as one of the great live bands. A band that had the desire to go all around the world – playing everywhere and anywhere.

“That challenge in ongoing and we will relish touring all of the UK next spring, getting up close to so many who have supported us over the last three decades and more.”

Metro said ‘it’s official, Simple Minds are cool again’ while The Guardian opined ‘Simple Minds are suddenly alive and kicking again’.

Simple Minds hit Plymouth Pavilions on April 9, 2013, and Colston Hall Bristol on April 29, 2013. Tickets go on sale at 10am on October 26, 2012.
