30th Anniversary Celebrations

Scottish rock legends Simple Minds have announced plans for their 30th anniversary concert, with all proceeds going to charity.

The band will take the stage at the ABC1 venue in their hometown of Glasgow, will all proceeds being donated to Radio Clyde's Cash For Kids appeal. The 1250 capacity venue will be packed to the rafters for what will no doubt be an emotional night with one of Scotland's biggest and most celebrated bands.

Emerging from the same Glasgow post punk scene that spawned Orange Juice, Simple Minds initially had a strong experimental streak before moving into a more populist vein. The band recently played the Nelson Mandela 90th Birthday concert, and the rest of their UK tour will consist of massive arena dates.

Frontman Jim Kerr said: "As a benefit concert the ABC show presents us with the opportunity to work with Radio Clyde on their annual’s Cash for Kids campaign. Within that we would like to encourage and congratulate them and their listeners for their continued efforts that over so many years have raised so much for local children’s charities."

To be eligible for tickets just register on the Simple Minds official site. Simple Minds' charity concert takes place on December 7th in the ABC1, Glasgow.
