Veteran British band Simply Red will hold four concerts in four Spanish cities next June, starting on the 5th at the Marenostrum festival in Fuengirola (Málaga) and ending at the Enrique Tierno Galván Park in Madrid on the 9th.
Meanwhile, as reported by Live Nation, Mick Hucknall and co will also perform at Marina Sur in Valencia on June 7 and, the following day, at a confirmed venue in Barcelona.
After a more than three-decade career, Simply Red amassed more than 60 million records sold worldwide and over 30 number one albums in a style drawn from ‘reggae’, ‘soul’ and ‘r&b’ and which has spawned hits such as “Holdin”. ‘ Back The Years” or “If You Don’t Know Me By Now”.
Their discography, which began in 1985 with “Picture Books”, extended to just before the pandemic, when in 2019 they released “Blue Eyed Soul”, and had milestones such as the album “Star”, which was the UK’s best-selling album in 2017. 1991.
They recently released “Simply Red Remixed”, in which DJs and producers from around the world have remastered up to 22 of the band’s songs, including never-before-seen versions, as well as a new track titled “Earth In A Lonely Space.”
In this regard, Hucknall has shown his objections against publishing a new studio album. “I’m not even sure if I’ll be making another album. I’d rather write song after song, putting all my efforts in one direction than overthinking a few,” he said in a statement compiled in a press release.
