Simple Minds return to Australia in 2024 and will perform two very special shows at Australia’s most iconic and beloved venue, the Sydney Opera House.

Legendary Scottish band Simple Minds come to Sydney

Simple Minds are one of the UK’s most successful bands that have achieved worldwide success. Having sold over 60 million albums, they have experienced a remarkable journey since releasing their debut album Life In A Day in 1979. Over the course of their stunning career, Simple Minds have sold out stadiums and arenas across the globe. Constantly evolving, the band’s rousing choruses and booming atmospherics made them one of the most iconic bands of the 80s. Their trademark sound has earned them massive hits – with songs such as Promised You A Miracle, Glittering Prize, Don’t You (Forget About Me), Alive and Kicking, Sanctify Yourself, Belfast Child and Let There Be Love dominating the airwaves globally.

Australia was the first country in the world, outside of the UK, to embrace Simple Minds, giving the band its first-ever hit single Love Song and first gold album ‘New Gold Dream (81-82-83-84)’. The love affair has continued ever since. Now, they return to Australia in 2024 and will perform two very special shows at Australia’s most iconic and beloved venue, the Sydney Opera House.
