Tickets for Simply Red are ON SALE NOW [buy tickets here]
Simply Red have more than 50 million album sales and are celebrating 30 years in music with a world tour that now includes the Welsh capital. Mick Hucknall and his band mates will play all of their hits in a full-length set at the home of Glamorgan CCC, with support acts to be added to the bill.
As the band enters its fourth decade, buoyed by the excellent new album ‘Big Love’, their reputation as one of the great British groups is set for some timely enhancement as they perform their greatest hits such as; ‘Money’s Too Tight (To Mention)’, ‘Holding Back The Years’, ‘If You Don’t Know Me By Now’, ‘Something Got Me Started’, ‘The Right Thing’, ‘Stars’, ‘Fairground’, ‘Angel’ and ‘Sunrise’.
“We want to play all of the big hits and I’ve always enjoyed singing live. We’ve put a great tour together and we’re looking forward to performing in front of our Welsh fans,” said Mick Hucknall.
This will be the first concert of its kind at The SSE SWALEC and Glamorgan Cricket Chief Executive Hugh Morris hopes the international cricket ground will prove an attractive addition to Cardiff’s impressive line-up of music venues.
After five days of sell-out crowds for international cricket in 2015, including the first Investec Ashes Test of 2015, Morris is confident the venue can become a regular stop for the best touring artists.
“We’re delighted to have secured such a prestigious act to play at The SSE SWALEC and we look forward to welcoming Simply Red to Wales,” he said.
“Our intention is to attract the type of acts that will hold strong appeal to Cardiff’s music fans.
“Simply Red fit the bill and we’re delighted that they have chosen to make this addition to what is proving to be a hugely successful tour.”
