Simple Minds celebrates 40 iconic years in music by embarking upon a major world tour in 2020.

– I’m grateful for the career we’ve had, but I’m crazy enough to believe that we can still reach new levels. This is what we do; write and records songs, and play them live, says front figure and vocalist Jim Kerr.

The British legends are due to release “Live In the City of Angels” this week, a live album that captures them on their biggest North America tour.

On 1st of November, they sum up their career so far with the compilation album “40: The Best Of – 1979-2019”, a collection of songs spanning a 40-year career, and a massive discography. The album includes goodies from iconic albums such as “New Gold Dream (81-82-83-84)”, “Sons and Fascination” and “Sparkle In The Rain”, the 1985 hit “Don’t You Forget About Me” and other hits including “Alive and Kicking” and “Sanctify Yourself” from “Once Upon a Time” – which reached first place on the album charts both in the US and at home in the UK – and “Big Music” from 2015, which MOJO named their best album in 30 years.

There is good reason to believe that many of these classics will be played live when Simple Minds makes the trip to Stavanger, Bergen and Oslo. With Jim Kerr at the forefront, they have the status as one of their generation’s greatest bands and have been described by BBC as one of the best live bands in the world. The audience will meet a band that is more popular than ever and sells tickets as never before as it is discovered by new generations.

The concert is played with a standing audience.
