Currently on their Big Love World Tour having celebrated a milestone 30-year anniversary, the band will perform their classic hits this summer from their timeless back catalogue.
Mick Hucknall will be joined by his long serving band mates Ian Kirkham (sax), Steve Lewinson (bass), Kenji Suzuki (guitar), Kevin Robinson (trumpet and flute) and Dave Clayton (keyboards) plus new drummer Roman Roth, who will thrill the audience with their canon of hits, including ‘Stars’, ‘If You Don’t Know Me By Now’‘Holding Back The Years’, and ‘Fairground’, to the backdrop of some of the UK’s most iconic locations.
As Mick completes one of the biggest tours of Simply Red’s career, as the band enters its fourth decade, his sense of purpose is clearer than ever. “We’re called Simply Red for a reason,” says the man with one of the greatest voices in soul music. “I want to keep it simple. Our fans know who we are. They have been loyal to us. Now I’m ready to go out there and give them what they want.”
