Simple MindsWhen Simple Minds announced they were taking their new album, Simple Minds Acoustic, on the road the first London gig, at the London Palladium on Saturday 27th May, sold out and a second date had to be added, at Theatre Royal Drury Lane on Sunday 4th June. The tour will see them perform a career spanning collection of songs acoustically for the first time and they will be joined by special guest The Anchoress. "Don't be fooled by the acoustic tag!" Jim Kerr has reassured us, and with MOJO magazine declaring it "their best album in 30 years" these shows will be just as energetic as their rock n roll performances.

About Theatre Royal Drury Lane

London's oldest theatre is also its most spectacular, with a palatial auditorium that is among the most impressive in the world. The first theatre on this site was built in 1662 on the orders of Charles II. It has been rebuilt a number of times since then, but the current auditorium incorporates many elements from as long ago as 1820. More about Theatre Royal Drury Lane
