17 October 2021
The Simply Red show on 11 October 2020 has been rescheduled, with a new date of 17 October 2021. Please see statement from the event organisers below:
“Out of consideration for the safety and welfare of our fans, band and crew, Simply Red are rescheduling their autumn tour dates to 2021. Tickets will be honoured for the rescheduled dates, so hold onto your tickets and we’ll see you next year!"
Mick said, ‘We held on for as long as we could wishing that things would return to some semblance of normality. My voice is in great shape, we were ready and raring to go in the hope that we might cheer you up by performing some of your favourite songs. However, it’s now clear that our tour in the autumn must be put back to next year. See you in 2021 when hopefully the World will have this virus under better control’.
All tickets will remain valid for the new date.
Following the release of their funky new album, ‘Blue Eyed Soul’, last November, Simply Red revealed the details of a highly anticipated UK and Ireland arena tour with a date at M&S Bank Arena Liverpool on Sunday 11 October.
Hailed as one of the most successful live acts ever to come out of the UK, they will be firing on all cylinders delivering their all-time classic hits from a stellar career, such as ‘Stars’, ‘Holding Back The Years’, ‘Fairground’ and ‘Money’s Too Tight To Mention’, as well as some raw and soulful new grooves.
