Simple Minds founding members are the singer Jim Kerr and the guitarist Charlie Burchill. The Scottish duo take their name from the lyrics of the song “The Jean Genie” by David Bowie. Simple Minds scored more than 60 million album copies and managed to have 5 No. 1 albums in the UK: “Sparkle In The Rain” (1984), “Once Upon A Time” (1985),” “Street Fighting Years” (1989), “Live In The City Of Light” (1987) and “Glittering Prize 81/92” (1992.)

Formed in 1977, Simple Minds came to prominence in 1982 with their successful studio album “New Gold Dream”, considered the new wave music manifesto. The Glasgow-native group became more and more commercially successful thanks to the following albums “Sparkle In The Rain” (1984) and “Once Upon A Time” (1985.) “Don’t You (Forget About Me)”, featured on the soundtrack of the 80s teen cult movie “The Breakfast Club” by John Hughes, turned Simple Minds into a cult phenomenon.

On October, 31 2019, Simple Minds put out their greatest hits album “Forthy: The Best Of Simple Minds” to retrace and celebrate their 40-year career anniversary. On the compilation, there is also a cover song of King Creosote’s “For One Night Only” (2014.)

Simple Minds last performed at Arena di Verona thirty years ago as part of their legendary 1989 “Street Fighting Years Tour.”
