The first single from the new Simple MInds album Big Music is the song Honest Town. You can see the full video below, which features new touring member Catherine A.D. as well.




I also uploaded a huge number of posters to the website. There are more than 100 posters from teh Celebrate Tour alone!

After this update there are over 460 Simple Minds posters on this website. Next goal to reach 500 by the end of the year... :-)

The Celebrate tour ended just a few weeks ago on 12th September. So far it has been the longest Simple Minds tour ever, lasting over 19 months and the band performed nearly 150 concerts.

Meanwhile the band completed their 16th studio album. Big Music is going to be released on 3rd November in 3 different formats: standard CD, vinyl and deluxe edition (2CD + DVD). You can order it by clicking the image below:

And if that wouldn't be enough, a new tour is coming! The first leg of the Big Music Tour will start on 7th February in Lisbon, Portugal and will end on 4th May in Ipswich, United Kingdom. Below is the poster with the UK dates:

Last but not least I refreshed the website's design to match with the new Simple Minds album's artwork. And I also updated the Tickets section, adding 30 new Simple Minds tickets, including one of the earliest Simple MInds tickets from 1979:

(After this update there are nearly 800 Simple Minds tickets on the website...)

Since the launch of SM-Tours.com in November 2012 there were several updates to the website. All sections were updated except the Itineraries part. You might ask why - well, because there was not even a single new item that could have been added.

Until now.

I just received a new tour itinerary that was issued fot the Australia 2010 tour. To be honest, it wasn't a single tour, let's call it the Australian leg of the Graffiti Soul Tour.

Anyway, here it is, and I am very happy to show it to you.

Itineraries are very special and mega rare items. These are produced for the band and the people who are working with the band during the tour. In these rare tour books, only for people involved in the tour, you get the following information: In which hotel they spent the night, tour related companies, crew members, promoters, travel arrangements, etc. etc. Very rare and only a few made for each tour. 

After this update there are 46 Simple Minds tour itineraries on the website. And I hope there are a lot more out there, waiting to be discovered...

I just updated the website with a huge number of ticket scans / photos. And when I say huge, I do mean it. More than 100 tickets were added to the website, including some nice picture tickets. The 2014 leg of the Celebrate tour saw the return of of the picture tickets - below are some nice examples.

After this update there are over 750 Simple Minds tickets on the website. And there are a lot more coming...

I just added 25 Simple Minds posters from 12 different tours to the website, including this huge poster from Belgrade, which was probably the largest Simple Minds poster ever.

After this update there are 410 Simple Minds posters on the website.
