Simple Minds brings their big world tour "40 Years Of Hits" to Šalata Stadium. Scottish rock greats are returning to Zagreb to mark four decades of work with a concert that will contain absolutely all the most important songs from the rich opus.
"We're going to play two long sets," explains frontman Jim Kerr. "The tour has to be special, so we prepared very well. You will hear all the classics and all the great songs, and for hard core fans we will perform things we haven't played in a long time ". The celebration of 40 years of Simple Minds will be marked by a huge world tour, the European part of which has just been discovered. It will include more than 53 arenas and open air concerts in 16 countries, and the culmination is expected at performances at SSE Hydra in Glasgow and, as far as the local audience is concerned, at Zagreb's Salata, which will be the only date the band has dedicated to our region.
As an introduction to the anniversary action, the group released as many as two releases – the concert album "Live In The City Of Angels" and the compilation "40: The Best Of 1979 – 2019". The live release was recorded on a long North American tour, while the hit collection is by far the most detailed and comprehensive overview of the fascinating career of one of the island's biggest bands and includes 40 songs, from the megahits "Don't You (Forget About Me)", "Alive & Kicking". “Belfast Child”, “Mandela Day”, “Promised You A Miracle”, “Glittering Prize”, “Waterfront”, “Sanctify Yourself”, “New Gold Dream (81, 82, 83, 84)”, “War Babies” to a new song, a cover of King Creosote’s “For One Night Only”. All of them will be heard live by our audience on July 13 at the favorite Šalata stadium.
"Simple Minds are different today," said founders and active members Jim Kerr and Charlie Burchill. "We didn't change the line-up to be cool, but because it's great to have great musicians in the band." Confirmation that they are extremely good at the band's simple plan ("We compose, record and play live") are the criticisms that accompanied the last studio album, "Walk Between Worlds" released in 2018.
