Simple Minds, Orchestral Manoeuvers In The Dark, Eurogliders to play A Day On The Green

by Paul Cashmere on November 8, 2019

in News

The first A Day On The Green for the summer of 2020 has been announced. Simple Minds will tour to mark their 40th anniversary. In fact, its 40+ all around with Australia’s Eurogliders also clocking up 40 years since they formed in 2020 and Orchestral Manoeuvers In The Dark will also mark 40 years since the release of their debut album in 1980.

Australia was the first place outside the UK to get into Simple Minds. “I’m grateful for the career we’ve had,” Jim says, “but I’m mad enough to think we can still hit new levels.”

“The perception that we’re now gathering pace is down to our attitude to playing live,” guitarist Charlie Burchill adds. “A legacy can be a burden if you allow it to be – for us, it’s been empowering.”
