Simple Minds are live ‘In Concert’ for Radio 2 at the Hackney Empire on Thursday. Radio 2 listeners will be given a sneek preview on the Ken Bruce show in the morning
The show is in support of the new ‘Simple Minds Acoustic‘ album and will be live on Radio 2. It’ll also be viewable on the BBC Red Button.
Recording the album with them was such a pleasure, and it’s great to see it enjoying early success. The new version of ‘Promised You a Miracle’ with KT Tunstall has already made ‘Single of the Week’ on Radio 2, as well as hitting the A-list. And with a UK and European tour lined up for 2017, the band look to be going from strength to strength.
Speaking of radio exposure, it was great to see the up-and-coming Nell Bryden make the Radio 2 B-List for the month.
And with spot plays for new artist Purdy on Jools Holland’s radio show, the music we’re making looks like finding its way well into the world…
