SIMPLE MINDS have announced a run of shows in the UK and Ireland as part of their mammoth Global Tour 2024.
The dates, which form part of the Glasgow post-punk chartbusters' biggest tour since 1985, follow their previously announced dates in Australia and New Zealand and find the band still at a late-period peak following the global success of last year's Direction Of The Heart album, their first new studio album in four years and a Top 10 hit in eight countries.
Their UK and Irish dates kick off in Leeds on 15 March, taking in a London date at the O2 arena and climaxing with a hometown show at the 14,000 capacity OVO Hydro. More dates around the world will be added in due course. Full dates are....
