On the eve of the album’s release, in November 2016, Simple Minds took to the stage of London’s famous Hackney Empire to perform a special show for BBC Radio 2’s renowned “In Concert” series. The band performed re-imagined acoustic versions of some of their greatest hits and best-loved tracks along with cover versions of some of the songs that influenced them including a stunning finale of “Make Me Smile (Come Up And See Me)” which sees them joined by Steve Harley. This is Simple Minds as you’ve never seen them before!
Simple Minds are about to embark on a huge acoustic tour of Europe, having proved once again that they are a class act, with hit after hit given a fresh twist that allows them room to breathe and the melodies to shine through. “Acoustic In Concert” is a must for any fan of this remarkable band.
