Thirty years after introducing a generation to the joys of soul music through their irrepressible rendition of the Valentine Brothers’ recession-themed classic “Money’s Too Tight To Mention”, Simply Red are back with a brand new album ‘Big Love’ and Musician.ie have a pair of tickets for their LATM gig on June 11th to give away.
Currently on their Big Love World Tour the band will perform their classic hits this summer from across their discography. Mick Hucknall will be joined by his long serving band mates Ian Kirkham (sax), Steve Lewinson (bass), Kenji Suzuki (guitar), Kevin Robinson (trumpet and flute) and Dave Clayton (keyboards) plus new drummer Roman Roth, who will thrill the audience with their canon of hits, including ‘Stars’, ‘If You Don’t Know Me By Now’ and ‘Fairground’.
As Hucknall completes one of the biggest tours of Simply Red’s career and as the band enters its fourth decade, his sense of purpose is clearer than ever. “We’re called Simply Red for a reason,” says the man with one of the greatest voices in soul music. “I want to keep it simple. Our fans know who we are. They have been loyal to us. Now I’m ready to go out there and give them what they want.”
