â€œWelcome to the final year of twenty five mind blowing years. What an adventure it has been! I could never have imagined my career would bring me so far. We want to share this closing anniversary with all the people who have enjoyed our sound through out the years. Celebrate it and gently move on to the second half of a musical story. We all hope to see you at a show some where soon. Best wishes from Mick and all at Simply Red.â€
