Simply Red Reform

Simply Red are reforming to celebrate their 30th anniversary.

The band, headed by Mick Hucknall, did a farewell tour in 2009-10 which the singer said “will be the last Simply Red tour.” Hucknall has gone on to record the album American Soul and did some touring with Faces but, as so many before him, “last” does not always mean “final.”

Hucknall announced the Big Love Tour on Twitter with a handwritten note.

“Am happy to celebrate with you our 30 years in music,” Mick Hucknall wrote. “We hpe you’re going to enjoy the shows as much as we are.”

Joining Hucknall are Ian Kirkham (sax­o­phone), Kenji Suzuki (gui­tar), Steve Lew­in­son (bass), Dave Clayton (key­boards), Roman Roth (drums), and Kevin Robin­son (trum­pet and flute).

Tickets for the tour go on sale this Friday at 8 AM for U.K. shows. Check the band’s official page for on-sale for other dates.
