Simply Red Reform For 30th Anniversary Tour

Simply Red will mark their 30th anniversary with a world tour.

The UK leg features 16 dates including two dates just added: a second night in Birmingham on the 15th December and third night at the O2 Arena on the 19th December.

Since they burst onto the scene in 1985 with their seminal cover of ‘Money’s To Tight To Mention’, Simply Red have made a string of classic, landmark albums, introducing a generation to the joys of soul music and Mick Hucknall’s iconic voice.

Now back in vogue, with countless young artists name checking their influence and with a performance at the Royal Variety Show on 8th December to come, Simply Red are going through something of a renaissance being re-appraised as one of the great British bands.

The band finished its initial, unbroken 25 year run with a concert at London’s O2 Arena in 2010, and now the time has come to get back on stage together. ‘I like an anniversary, and this is a big one’, Mick Hucknall says, ‘It feels like the right time’.
