Simply Red have rescheduled their highly anticipated UK and Ireland tour for February 2022. The tour, originally planned for 2020, comes after the band’s acclaimed 2019 album Blue Eyed Soul. The wonderful Mica Paris is special guest on all dates.
Mick Hucknall has been Simply Red’s songwriter and bandleader since the very beginning in 1985, aided by long-serving saxophonist Ian Kirkham since 1986. The current line-up has remained consistent since 2003, and the new tour will play to the core strengths of this fantastic band.
“I want them to enjoy playing, for crowds to get up and move around, and everybody to put their heart into it. It’s all about capturing the groove.” says Mick.
The shows will see the band perform classic hits including Stars, Holding Back The Years, Fairground and Money’s Too Tight To Mention.
Mick Hucknall can’t wait to get back onstage. “I’ve spent most of my life going out and singing for people, so it feels strange not to have that.” he said.” I miss being able to express myself. It’s going to be wonderfully inspiring when people can go and see bands again. I can’t wait.”
