Global icons Simple Minds and The Pretenders continue to enjoy outstanding musical journeys and phenomenal worldwide success. They now come together on the same stage for the first time since Live Aid to present a unique opportunity to see both bands as they tour throughout the UK in 2018.

Celebrating new albums, Simple Minds and The Pretenders will perform their classic hits, that have made them such a distinctive part of our musical heritage, as well as new material at outdoor venues all over the UK in 2018.
