Back together again; Simply Red mark their 30th anniversary with a world tour, the UK leg features 14 dates including two hotly anticipated shows at London's O2 Arena December 17th and 18th 2015.
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 that defined British R 'n B throughout the 1980s and 1990s, 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, 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'.
