An Evening with Simple Minds
Walk Between Worlds Tour
Scottish rockers Simple Minds are touring North America to celebrate 40 years of music history. Featuring iconic songs and tracks from their new album Walk Between Worlds, this will be an unmissable show at Reno's Grand Theatre.
Simple Minds are one of the UK’s most successful bands, having achieved six No.1 albums in the UK as well hitting the top spot in countless other territories including Germany, Italy, France, Spain, Australia and New Zealand. Simple Minds have been many things to many people: sound scapers, sound-shapers, soundtrack makers, serial chart-toppers. They have influenced acts as diverse as the Manic Street Preachers, Primal Scream, Moby and The Horrors. They have been sampled by Nicky Minaj, David Guetta, Joey Negro and Freddy Bastone. They have provided memorable movie moments for directors Christian Carion (L’Affaire Farewell), Gregor Jordan (The Informers), Cameron Crowe (Elizabethtown) and, of course, John Hughes (The Breakfast Club). They have topped the British charts half a dozen times, with the studio albums Sparkle In The Rain (1984), Once Upon A Time (1985) and Street Fighting Years as well as the Ballad Of The Streets EP (both 1989), the concert recording Live In The City Of Light (1987), and the compilation Glittering Prize 81/92, and returned to the UK Top Ten with latest albums Graffiti Soul & Big Music.
Simple Minds’ career has seen them responsible for some of the most innovative and enduring anthems in rock music. Jim Kerr is thrilled for the group’s return to North America offering, “the concert stage is where Simple Minds do their best work, it is where we forged our distinctive live reputation. A highlight of any touring band’s career has to be when they are given the opportunity to tour North America. Simple Minds will never forget the thrill of that, especially so during those glorious days of the mid 80’s. Magically for us, that thrill returns again as we excitedly announce our latest tour. Playing songs from throughout our extensive catalogue, going right back to the start and bring it all up to the current. It is guaranteed that we aim to give 100% of ourselves each and every night - as we look forward to performing in front our loyal fans throughout North America. Hope to see you all there!”
