Aberdeen Exhibition and Conference Centre (AECC) is excited to announce that Simply Red have reformed and will be playing the GE Oil & Gas Arena on Sunday 6th December 2015.
Holding Back the Years… Simply Red have decided to mark their 30th Anniversary with a World Tour; including 14 nights in the UK in 2015!
Since bursting onto the scene in 1985 with their seminal cover of ‘Money’s Too Tight to Mention’, Simply Red have recorded a string of classic, landmark albums that defined British R‘n’B throughout the 1980s and 90s – 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’.
Having sold 60 million albums worldwide Simply Red have a timeless back catalogue that includes the hits ‘Holding Back The Years’, ‘If You Don’t Know Me By Now’, ‘Something Got Me Started’, ‘The Right Thing’, ‘Stars’, ‘Fairground’, ‘The Air That I Breathe’ and ‘Sunrise’.
Brian Horsburgh, AECC’s Managing Director commented: “It is great to welcome back Simply Red to the Venue as part of their Big Love 30th Anniversary Tour! Having last played here in January 1991, we are sure that fans will be delighted with this news.”
