Simply Red are now back in vogue, going through something of a Renaissance, being rightly so re-appraised as one of the great British bands. The band will mark their 30th anniversary with a world tour, the UK leg features 14 dates including a return to Belfast’s Odyssey Arena. ‘I like an anniversary, and this is a big one’, Mick Hucknall says, ‘It feels like the right time’.
Since they burst onto the scene in 1985 with their seminal cover of ‘Money’s To Tight To Mention’, Simply Red have made a string of classic, landmark albums and singles 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’.
Simply Red are: Mick Hucknall (vocals), Ian Kirkham (saxophone), Kenji Suzuki (guitar), Steve Lewinson (bass), Dave Clayton (keyboards), Roman Roth (drums), and Kevin Robinson (trumpet and flute).
