Simply Red at the Motorpoint Arena Nottingham on Sunday 18 October 2020



Simply Red due to perform at the Motorpoint Arena Nottingham on Sunday 18th October 2020 has been rescheduled to Friday 8th October 2021.

A statement from the promoter says:

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.

Simply Red at the Motorpoint Arena Nottingham on Friday 8 October 2021

Returning to the city for the first time since their ‘Star’s’ anniversary tour, Mick Hucknall and co will play Motorpoint Arena Nottingham on Friday 8 October 2021.

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.

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 Hucknall.

‘Blue Eyed Soul’ was recorded as live with few overdubs at British Grove Studios in London. All ten tracks, including the sensational new single ‘Thinking Of You’, were written by Mick Hucknall and produced by long-time collaborator Andy Wright. Musical reference points draw on classic funk and soul: Wilson Pickett, Dyke and the Blazers, James Brown, and the roaring horns of Tower of Power. “I’m looking forward to playing it live because it’s real”, says Hucknall of the upcoming record, “I want to have a good time”.
