In one of the upcoming summer’s more captivating tours, the majestic Simple Minds will team with the party vibes of The B-52s for a huge Australian tour in February 2017.

Both bands, who are much-loved by Australian fans, will roam through A Day On The Green wineries nationally, as well as Melbourne & Sydney indoor shows.

Australia was the first country in the world to embrace Simple Minds, giving the band its first ever hit single ‘Love Song’ and first Gold album ‘New Gold Dream’. The love affair has continued ever since through countless chart-toppers like ‘Don’t You Forget About Me’, ‘Alive and Kicking’, ‘Promised You A Miracle’, ‘Glittering Prize’ and ‘Waterfront’ spanning eight Top 20 albums and hugely successful concert tours.

The B-52s bring their quirky and unconventional take on the new wave sound of the era.  Their irrepressible live shows and massive hits like ‘Rock Lobster’, ‘Private Idaho’, ‘Roam’ and the barnstorming ‘Love Shack’, which notched up eight weeks at #1 on the Australian charts, have endeared them to audiences worldwide.

Simple Minds and The B-52s are heading to Australia for:

- A Day On The Green @ Rochford Wines on Saturday February 4th 2017

- Margaret Court Arena, Melbourne on Tuesday February 7th 2017

Simple Minds and The B-52s at the Hordern Pavilion Feb 9 and at A Day On The Green, Bimbadgen Hunter Valley February 11.  Tickets on sale Monday August 22.
