Best concert EVER! My wife and I waited over 30 years to see Simple Minds. This was a memorable concert because the date of the concert marked our 22nd wedding anniversary AND the venue was the location where we hosted our wedding reception. I hope Simple Minds tours in the U.S. again SOON! Jim’s voice is spot-on and the new material only further augmented decades of exceptional music.

Actually saw them at the Pabst theater in Milwaukee and we had some much fun ! They are so personable and interact a ton with their fans. We have VIP tickets and it’s was the bomb

Great show. First time I’ve had the opportunity to see Simple Minds. Glad they played a broad selection of my favorite early 80’s era. I wish the keyboard parts had been more prominent but that’s where their heads are at these days (and no proper keyboard specialist).
