Frontier Touring are delighted to welcome seminal Scottish band back to New Zealand in December 2020 as part of their 40 Years Of Hits Tour, playing at Christchurch’s Horncastle Arena on Wednesday 9 December 2020.
They’ll be joined by special guests Orchestral Manoeuvres In The Dark (OMD), who will be touring New Zealand for the first time in more than 30 years.
The band are touring in celebration of 40: The Best Of - 1979-2019, a brand new 40-song collection marking their 40th anniversary. The compilation features a cover of Scottish singer-songwriter King Creosote’s ‘For One Night Only’
SIMPLE MINDS, who have sold more than 60 million albums, have been musical pioneers for 40 glittering years. Catching the mood of the post-punk era, when the angry sounds of 1977 were splintering into a thousand different shapes, they emerged with a style ingrained in the art-rock of David Bowie and the electronic dance of Donna Summer. They went on to become one of the great bands of their generation, deploying rousing choruses and booming atmospherics to provide a soundtrack that has endured.
It was the release of New Gold Dream (81–82–83–84) (NZ Platinum) that set Simple Minds alight in New Zealand. A string of awards and more unforgettable hits followed, including lead single ‘Promised You A Miracle’, ‘Let There Be Love’, ‘Alive and Kicking’, ‘Sanctify Yourself’, ‘Belfast Child’ and the truly iconic ‘Don’t You (Forget About Me)’, recorded for the unforgettable John Hughes film The Breakfast Club.
