Mellen Events and Roundhouse Entertainment are proud to announce seminal Scottish band Simple Minds will be returning to Australia in December 2021 for their 40 Years of Hits Tour.

This tour celebrates 'Simple Minds' 40: The Best Of – 1979-2019', a 40-song collection that marks the band’s 40th anniversary. The compilation features a new song, a cover of 'For One Night Only' by Scottish singer-songwriter King Creosote.

Simple Minds will be joined by very special guests, UK electronic pioneers Orchestral Manoeuvres in the Dark, who will be touring Australia for the first time since 1987, as well as Aussie chart-toppers Eurogliders for this very special night of music at the picturesque Kings Park & Botanic Garden. This is a tour not to miss!
