Simple Minds – Inverness
Simple Minds in Inverness – The Northern Meeting Park in Inverness will be the host for Simple Minds one and only Scottish gig on Saturday 16th July 2011. Big Country famous for the songs “In A Big Country” and “Look Away” have been scheduled as the support act.
Simple Minds are said to be the most successful Scottish rock band with over 40 million album sales and 21 UK top twenty singles with 8 reaching the top ten. Highland music lovers will enjoy hits like “Waterfront”, “Alive & Kicking”, UK chart topper “Belfast Child” and worldwide No.1 smash, “Don’t You (Forget About Me)” with the stunning Inverness Cathedral as a backdrop.
The event is being billed as Summer In The City 2011 and is being promoted by Inverness-based CK Events. CK promoted the Rod Stewart concert at Caledonian Stadium last July and they have also recently announced that Rod will be appearing at Pittodrie Stadium in Aberdeen on 5th June 2011 and Cawdor Castle has been earmarked for another event on 27th July 2011. Details of the artist has yet to be released but it is sure to be a big name following on from last year’s stars Westlife and the X-Factor Finalists.
Simple Minds have a hectic summer schedule as they play their Greatest Hits UK Forest Tour in England and Wales Forestry Commission forests during June and July plus European dates including Belgium and Germany later in July.
Simple Minds‘ current line-up is front man Jim Kerr and his fellow band founder Charlie Burchill plus Mel Gaynor and the most recent additions Andy Gillespie on keyboards and Ged Grimes formerly of Danny Wilson.
