Simple Minds have shared a live version of their iconic track ‘Don’t You (Forget About Me)’, taken from their forthcoming album Live in the City of Angels.
The record captures the band on their most recent tour, and is out today via BMG.
Following the huge acclaim of 2018’s Walk Between Worlds album (“The band’s best album in decades.” Album Of The Week, Sunday Times), continuing their recent spectacular renaissance, while also building on their reputation as one of the world’s great live acts, last autumn Simple Minds travelled to North America to under-take their first coast to coast tour in over two decades.
Listen to ‘Don’t You (Forget About Me) [Live]’ by Simple Minds on the Shoot Music New Releases playlist on Spotify.
Taking in 31 cities, both critics and fans unanimously agreed that it was the bands most successful US tour to date.
Referencing their first live album, 1987’s Live In The City Of Lights, this new live collection once again finds Simple Minds 30 years later scaling the heights of those dizzy days, selling more tickets year by year, as each new generation discovers the phenomenal live power of the band.
The band were greeted by an excitement stateside they’d not experienced since their imperial phase in the mid-1980s. Nowhere was this passion captured better than on a recording of their performance at the Orpheum Theatre, Los Angeles on October 24, 2018.
24 of the tracks were performed that night. ‘Glittering Prize’ was recorded at The Fillmore, Miami Beach on November 8, 2018 and the bonus tracks were recorded at various sound checks and rehearsals.
