The big hits! The ridiculous moves! Simple Minds have still got the lot

  • Jim Kerr should take out a patent or two. The Simple Minds singer may be 62, but the stadium rock shapes he endlessly threw throughout this (delayed) opening night of the band’s 40 Years of Hits tour perfectly sum up his oeuvre and era. Simple Minds’ music is – just like Kerr’s cavorting – dramatic, preposterous, overblown and wildly entertaining all at the same time. As a pop cultural snapshot of the bombastic Eighties, a Simple Minds concert can’t be bettered.
